This farm has been cleared and built with love which is evident in the personal touches around every corner. The main house has a rich history having been built in 1860 in a Cape Dutch style. The large kitchen is the heart of the home and all the cabinetry has been built with recycled wood. The large main bedroom is complimented by the spacious en-suite bathroom and plenty of cupboard space. A smaller bedroom situated in close proximity would make an ideal study or nursery. A further two guest rooms share a full bathroom. An open plan living area opens off the kitchen and in turn opens into a dining area and sun room. There is also a TV lounge, complete with a fireplace, and a workroom which is perfect as a study or a room to indulge your hobbies.
A one bedroom cottage, built in the same Cape Dutch style, is currently rented for additional income. Five garages serve as storage and a wood working shed. Surrounding the homes are green pastures with grazing sheep and 3 dams. A borehole, which is shared with the neighbours, supplements the water tanks storage. Enjoy a farm lifestyle a mere 10 minutes from Plett central.

A model of freedom of expression, a rebellion against all that is bland and unimaginative, it is the only way to leave the world behind and arrive at a place you should have been all along.
