Historical Cape Dutch Manor House & Guest House on Country Estate. This 7.4ha estate is located in a quiet country lane only 15 minutes from town with unsurpassed views of the mountains and plains. The authentic Cape Dutch homestead (c.1806) has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious lounge and dining room, office, large farm kitchen with a state of the art 1800mm Lacanche gas stove, a separate scullery and pantry, lapa & indoor braai, swimming pool and large established gardens. The interior of the house has fine Yellowwood, Stinkwood and Oregon joinery with high ceilings and original flooring in the generously proportioned rooms.
Together with Reinet House (the old Parsonage) it is one of only two Cape Dutch H-Plan houses to be found in Graaff-Reinet. The house features in the renowned architectural reference work, “The Old Houses of the Cape” written by Hans Fransen.
Upmarket, tastefully decorated guest accommodation consists of a fully furnished 2 bedroom guesthouse with en suite bathrooms, dining room and kitchen and a 2 bedroom self-catering cottage with bathroom and kitchen. There is a separate guest swimming pool, braai area, and conference venue / entertainment area with an adjoining kitchen with pizza oven.
Numerous outbuildings, a 48 m2 timber office & admin centre, gara0ges, sheds, store-rooms, a 300 m² greenhouse tunnel, 3 tractors, trailers, implements, a 50kva generator and other items too numerous to mention.
The old coach house provides undercover parking for 3 vehicles. All the buildings are immaculate and all infrastructure, fencing, vehicles and equipment is in a very new or excellent condition. The well-established and productive lucerne lands consist of 4.5 hectares under drip irrigation and 0.33 hectares under permaset irrigation.
A good income is currently earned from guest accommodation and lucerne production, but this could be further enhanced.
