Living Link Realty is proud to present this exceptional property situated on a 735ha farm near Cullinan in Gauteng. There are only a few farms of this size still available in Gauteng. Not only is it currently being used for economical farming and wood production, but it also has the potential to be a highly productive farm. Most of the farm has good, deep soil that is mostly level. It can easily be planted with any number of crops.
The farm currently has a contract with a person who cut trees for production of charcoal. There are still a large number of trees available for this purpose ensuring a long term income. It also rents a portion of the land to a hydroponics producer of herbs and spices for the open market. As this organisation is well settled with lucrative contracts it would gladly enter negotiations for continued future rental.
The farm also rents grazing to a cattle farmer who grazes a fair sized herd on the property. A large cattle kraal of some 63x53m provides accommodation for approximately 100 head of cattle.
Three pecan nut plantations totaling approximately 30ha have been planted over the last three years. The first nuts were gathered during 2017. The expectation is that these trees will start producing over the next few year.
Drainage water is collected in two fair sized earth dams that provides for most of the farm’s water needs whilst water from a good borehole is collected in in a number of storage bags known as a “Damsak” that varies between 100 000 - 200 000 litres capacity. Even though there is only one equipped borehole on the property, it is possible to drill additional holes should it be required, but for current activities there is ample water available on the property.
For living in comfort and style, this property offers two spacious and very neat houses. The first one offers two very spacious bedrooms, a semi en-suite bathroom, a large lounge, a very spacious kitchen as well as a dining room. There is also a very large open plan room of some 8 x 8m that could be used for any number of purposes such as a game room, work room, TV room or it could even be converted into one or two additional bedrooms. An enclosed front veranda serves as the perfect sun room.
The second house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as an outside shower and basin that serve the pool area. The bedrooms are very spacious with built-in cupboards. The very large and modern kitchen offers solid granite tops and more than ample built-in cupboards.
There is also a two bedroom, one bathroom rondavel with a lightweight concrete roof as well as a large office complex with a private office and a large open plan office. A carport at the office provides parking for four vehicles.
The property also offers a very large partially double story building that is currently used as a factory and store room. This facility has a very large refrigerated room that was previously used for keeping cut flowers cool. In addition there are two complexes that can accommodate a total of 22 workers. To top it off the property offers a runway and hanger for two airplanes.
