SMALL BOUTIQUE WINE ESTATE
Magnificent smallholding in an exceptional village position. This boutique-style farm measures just under 2.3Ha and is planted to 2,500 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, producing around 4,500 bottles of wine a year.
The newly thatched main house has been beautifully renovated in an elegant, minimalist style with high class finishes throughout. It comprises of 3 bedrooms (all en suite) and several entertainment areas as well as an enormous covered patio with breath-taking views of the neighbouring farms and surrounding mountains. The house is placed amidst a lush garden with mature trees and a swimming pool in a north-facing position.
A second dwelling contains two self-contained guest cottages, both with their own living spaces and kitchenettes, as well as a communal swimming pool. These units can be rented out as self-catering tourist accommodation, or can be used as management accommodation.
The majority of the land is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon vines (+/- 1,550 vines planted in 2012) and new Merlot vines (+/- 950 vines planted in 2015), with a top quality Rose and Merlot being produced off-site by an independent winemaker. A new farm barn was constructed about 3 years ago and comprises a Farm Manager’s Office, a Wine Storage Facility and an Implement’s Store.
Other infrastructure on the farm comprises two semi-detached labourer’s cottages (un-renovated) and a crèche facility currently operated by the local Lion’s Club on a flexible lease.
Overall, a magnificently manicured & easily managed lifestyle farm in one of the best locations in the Franschhoek Valley.
