There is just nothing more beautiful than this property with its majestic gardens situated a few minutes outside the wonderful little town of Cullinan in Gauteng. Words cannot describe the Cape-Dutch style manor house with its eight bedrooms and four bathrooms sitting on 82 ha of pristine farm land. There is also a comfortable flat attached to the house.
The main house has eight, magnificent, very spacious bedrooms, four upper class living areas, four modern, well equipped bathrooms, two separate guest toilets and a magnificent, very modern kitchen with top of the range solid teak cupboards. It has a separate pantry and a very large laundry room with lots of extra built-in cupboards. The very large formal lounge boasts a magnificent built-in fire place. In addition there is a workroom for the women of the house, which has lots of built-in cupboards as well. The house is arranged in such a way that a portion forms a self-contained flat, ideal for accommodating members of the family who want to be independent.
The main house is surrounded by eight magnificent dams which forms an integral part of a flourishing koi-fish production facility. The dams are arranged in such a way that they form a moat around the house and accesses to the property works with a suspension bridge system that can be raised to prevent access when required. There are currently a koi fishing business in operation in the dams. Access to the dams will be required to maintain the koi fishing business, but it will not be imposing on the tenant’s privacy.
There are entertainment areas galore that consists of a formal entertainment house with built-in braai, a lapa sitting on an island in one of the dams, a built-in boma-type braai at the lapa, as well as a most magnificent veranda running 270 degrees around the house.
The farm is developed for simultaneously farming with Koi fish, sheep, beef and pork with a formally developed piggery for some 100 sows as well as pig pens for a large number of boars and piglets.
There are two more houses on the property that are occupied and to which access are required. Both are some distance removed from the main house and will not be a problem to the tenant. Also on the farm is a cheese factory, which, for the time being, needs to be accessible for the owner to continue with his cheese production business. It is the plan to eventually move the factory to new premises in the Cape province.
There is ample water on the farm with four boreholes, three of which delivers approximately 20 000 litres per hour each and one which delivers approximately 10 000 litres per hour. A 1,5 ha dam that gets its water from the Elands River needs to be sealed in order to retain its water. In addition there is an automatic in-line diesel generator that delivers power to the whole farm in cases of Eskom outage.
Here is an upper-class, luxury property that is ready to be occupied.
