15ha Family smallholding on the Boschendal Estate, Franschhoek. A rare family home of distinction set on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains and part of the historic Boschendal Wine Estate between Franschhoek & Stellenbosch. 

Properties like these rarely come to market. This magnificent 15 hectare property, one of the original Boschendal Founders Estates, offers breathtaking views in every direction from its elevated position with the majestic Simonsberg mountains towering behind it as a truly spectacular backdrop to this equally spectacular homestead. De Oude Zilvermijn, offers generous spaces for extended family living with a footprint of 1,500 sqm set within a landscaped fynbos garden framed by packed stone walls and boarded walkways winding down towards its own perennial mountain stream, a large picnic lawn and private lake overlooking the vineyards and valley below.

The home itself has been exceptionally well designed, master built and finished with meticulous attention to detail and no expense spared in procuring the highest quality finishes throughout from engineered oak wood flooring to 2.5m door heights throughout, and even an automated pool cover with integrated solar panels spanning the length of a 20m heated swimming pool.

This home is all about family with a good balance between relaxed, communal open-plan living areas and the more formal, private accommodation areas of the home.  Entertaining is integral to the design of the home which incorporates an enormous feature kitchen (with separate scullery), dining, living room and library within a large but comfortable double-volume space leading out to a grand veranda and covered poolside bar lounge with uninterrupted views across the swimming pool towards Franschhoek. The more private areas of the home include a 6 -bedroom accommodation wing with kids TV lounge, a private courtyard patio with outdoor fireplace, an underground wine cellar and a mezzanine homework study overlooking the living areas.  A separate cottage with a home office and upstairs studio compliments the main house. Also includes a six-car garage with games room, 2 staff quarters, utility room and 3 outside storage rooms.  360 degree breath-taking views (and verandas to cover all of them) complete the picture.

The remaining agricultural portion of the land consists largely of vineyards and natural fynbos and is leased to and managed by the Boschendal Estate at their cost and with no liability to the owners. This really is a dream scenario - own and live on a wine farm while somebody else takes care of the day-to-day farming and infrastructure management – perfect!
