One of the finest Equestrian Estates
The equestrian estate is idyllically situated on a private cul-de-sac road nestled in an amphitheatre of mountains, surrounded by the Hottentots-Holland Nature Reserve, the Theewaters Nature Reserve and the Haweqwa Nature Reserve. Secluded for peace and tranquillity, yet only 1 ½ km (1 mile) from the bustling gastronomic village of Franschhoek, its great restaurants and multitude of famous wine estates.
When this property was purchased by the owners in 2005 it was a wine and fruit farm, however the new owners had a vision to create a luxurious lifestyle equestrian estate and essentially “re-invented” the entire property. The vineyards and orchards were replaced by post & rail pastures and an entirely newly designed, state of the art stable complex replaced all of the old and run down farm buildings. A major landscaping plan placed the entire estate under pop-up irrigation and mature trees were brought in to create shaded avenues and place feature trees.
Today, the architecturally elegant estate exudes a quiet splendour and is arrayed with a host of amenities designed for the 21st century equestrian. Aside from the main residence, a second residence, a manager’s house and a loft apartment along with several staff residences, the fenced-off estate features a stable complex comprised of several high-quality buildings - and containing the mare & foaling Barn, the yearling Barn, implements barn, pump house and an automated horse walker.
The fenced off estate encompasses 24.2 hectares ( 59.7 acres), including 2 dams with a capacity of 18 000 and 78 000 and cubic meters of water respectively, which are fed by streams from the mountains behind the farm. From the larger of the two dams there is a registered water servitude of 15 000 cubic meters per year in favour of a neighbouring farm. There are also 4 boreholes, one of which serves a water treatment plant exclusively for the various residences, stable complex and paddock drinking troughs. The water treatment plant has its own standby generator to ensure water supply continuity in the event of power outages. The remaining 3 boreholes keep the smaller dam topped up, which serves as the reservoir for the computer controlled irrigation system to all pastures and landscaped gardens.
