Magnificent stately farmhouse estate in the heart of the Midlands

Seldom does a homestead of this stature come onto the market. A home that enshrines the family spirit with all that it has to offer. At the end of the district road set high on the hill amongst indigenous vegetation, this artfully-crafted masterpiece of a home nestles quietly and securely on the mountain. The attention to detail together with an immense amount of love and thought that have gone into establishing this home, has been the recipe in creating this magnificent midlands homestead.

There are 5 large en-suite bedrooms, three reception/entertainment rooms with a beautifully wood-panelled lounge/study/TV room. There is a separate dining room and bar and guest cloakroom. A large wrap-around patio with exceptional views of the midlands and the magnificent gardens surrounding this homestead. There is underfloor heating throughout the home, two Morso fireplaces, and two open hearth Jetmaster wood fireplaces. All bathrooms are fitted with heated towel rails as well as a cupboard heating system to alleviate any damp around the clothes.

There is a separate two bedroom en-suite cottage with its own lounge and patio. The cottage is private with exceptional views. This could be set up for Airbnb catering for the private school community. The cottage has the plumbing in place to install a small kitchenette.

The garden surrounding this home is a masterpiece in itself. Having been selected to be part of the midlands open garden show, this 2 ha manicured garden is astounding. There is a fire-garden as well as a small dam at the bottom. The birdlife is exceptional.

Security is always a concern for potential buyers. This homestead has a full alarm system with interior and exterior beams. Floodlights, together with 7 cameras are installed to assist monitoring from inside the home. Ballid Security is very active in the area and will respond in need. Being at the end of the district road and set higher up on the mountain, the home is isolated and the current owners have not had one security incident.

Finally, with the “new normal”, post-Covid ’19, being a work from home norm, this homestead offers the discerning executive, an unprecedented lifestyle and work from home/commute option. Close to Michaelhouse, Clifton, St Anne’s and Hilton, this is a perfect solution for a large family or two families to invest in a lifestyle, second to none!
