A unique opportunity to purchase a very special and rare
property in the Garden Route, nestled in the forested ‘Boschrivier’ valley,
with the river flowing through the property, this idyllic valley offers a
unique combination of Afromontane forest and fynbos. The property boasts with a
historic primary residence, a 2 bedroom manager’s cottage, two one bedroom
cottages, an old laboratory, Reception and room for signing of registrar and
Bell Tower, coffee shop and several other additional buildings which serve as
stores, ablutions, staff facilities and the like, all of which have been
modelled in the same authentic Cape Karoo and Cape Georgian architectural
vernacular. Bosky Dell’s character and charm has been preserved, and its
‘footprint’ has remained the same for 150 years.

The main house consists of 3
spacious bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms all ensuite, the master bedroom has two dressing
areas and 2 full bathrooms, there is a spacious undercover patio with built in
braai and outdoor lounge and dining area, 2 lounges (one upstairs and one
downstairs), a separate dining room and a very spacious and modern kitchen
which is the hub of this house old farm house and a wonderful kitchen to
entertain and prepare a loving meal with guests and friends. The kitchen leads
out to an additional partly covered garden court yard with swimming pool. The
house has three garages and a separate laundry room connected to the garages.

The Boschrivier serves as perennial, potable water supply to
the property, which has since been augmented by a borehole. Power to the
property is supplied by Eskom, the local power utility, with a current 100kVa
transformer. This is supplemented by an auto-mains failure diesel powered
generator, rated at 82kVa.In 2007, the current owners developed a formal rose
garden which serves as the setting for a well-established wedding and function
venue. The wedding venue is made up of 2 Pavillion’s, which are a 100 m² each,
and with a center piece in an extent 100 m² between the two pavilions. As
mentioned above there are two sets of female and male guest toilets servicing
the wedding venue area. There is a main Conservatory area in an extent of 200
m², which is often used for either the ceremony area or private functions and
additional seating area.

Lush local flora plays host to an abundance of indigenous
animal and birdlife. Bosky Dell’s history can be traced to the mid-nineteenth
century, when the charming stone cottage was built by English settlers to the
region. To avoid a daily trek to Wittedrift for the settlers’ fifteen children
to attend school, a school-house was built. This spectacular garden is home to
over 5000 rose bushes, laid out in six distinct spaces, each of which boasts
its own character. In 2015, The World Federation of Rose Societies awarded the
garden the prestigious ‘Garden of Excellence Award’ (one of only two in South
Africa) – presented in Lyon, France – and this remains a popular tourist
attraction during the flowering season. Consent use for Tourism Facilities and
Service Industry. Gravity fed tanks with filtered river water supply household
water and there now a borehole in place.
