This exceptional property lies at
the start of the Franschhoek Pass, 87kms from Cape Town and is one of the most
significant properties in this area of the Western Cape: a valley icon.

The estate is a showcase of
dignified elegance, and takes full advantage of the natural beauty of the
Franschhoek valley, and it’s theme of easy living.

Two magnificent residences flank
either side of the property, built in the French Provencal style and positioned
to maximise their individual privacy. Views sweep through the valley towards
the Simonsberg and Jonkershoek mountains. The floorplans of these homes are
designed for entertaining both on a lavish scale, or something smaller, with
multiple dining and patio areas creating a good indoor-outdoor flow.  Both residences have very comfortable guest
accommodation. A smaller villa is situated lower down on the estate, and is
currently used for short term lets to discerning guests, some of whom return
each year to enjoy this luxurious, private hideaway. There is also a
well-appointed estate manager’s home.

A champagne cellar in the Method Champenoise
produces 20 000 bottles every year. It has tasting facilities, and secured
a niche market for this recognised label. A second, separate cellar produces
6000 bottles of Rose, a red blend and also a dessert wine annually.

Four hectares are planted to
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.

One hectare of terraced Mission
and Frantoio olives produces a small harvest of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which
is pressed locally and sold exclusively to one retail outlet.

Water availability is more than
adequate for current operations on the estate, sourced by 2 boreholes, a dam
and a mountainside spring.

This unique and versatile
property represents the very best of country living, while offering easy access
to the City of Cape Town. Top-rated schools, universities and medical
facilities are all within a 30 km radius of the estate, and the Main Street of
Franschhoek close by for shopping and fine dining.
