An exclusive mandate. This exceptional property neighbours the historic La Cotte Farm and offers 8.59 hectares of farm-style living right in the heart of the Franschhoek village.

Large reception rooms with high ceilings, original sash windows and solid yellow-wood flooring have all been completely updated while still remaining true to times gone by.
Multiple living rooms include a large dining room with glassed-in wine cellar, open-plan to an impressive country kitchen, scullery and larder. A generous family lounge with enormous central fireplace opens out to the north-facing front terrace with uninterrupted vineyard and mountain views. A large entrance foyer offers an additional reception lounge closer to the bedrooms and a separate office with attached bathroom. Downstairs accommodation offers three en-suite bedrooms and includes the master bedroom with luxurious bathroom, dressing room and doors out to the terrace. A further three en-suite bedrooms are positioned upstairs along with a large family pyjama lounge.
A deep front terrace extends the length of the property and offers the ideal space for outdoor entertaining beneath the shade of soaring oak trees. A private enclosed pool area and expansive lawned garden also benefits from breath-taking views across the vines and the neighbouring La Cotte Farm.
In addition to the Manor House, you will find the aptly named "Oak Cottage" which has proven to be a popular holiday rental over the years.
