An old, very private farm bordering the Garcia State Forest outside Riversdale on the Garden Route. Encompasses different biomes including fynbos and riverine forest. Lots of water and vegetation attract abundant wildlife.

Private residence/lifestyle farm with occasional tenants. Potential for guest/tourist accommodation or self-sufficient extended family.

SAFETY & SECURITY

The Overberg/Southern Cape, as distinct from the Western Cape as a whole, has enjoyed very low crime levels although there has been a small increase in recent years. This property offers exceptional privacy and security due to the lie of the land. It is surrounded on three sides by mountains and rivers and the single route in and out (a public road) goes past numerous close neighbours. The road ends at this property’s main gate.

Main farmhouse: Single storey 2.5 – 3 bedrooms, large split-level living/dining area, bathroom/toilet and separate toilet.

WATER

The property is located in the foothills of the Capefold mountain range, that forms the border between South Africa’s two main weather systems. South of the range receives Winter rainfall and north of the range receives Summer rainfall. The border has year-round precipitation from both systems and the immediate vicinity enjoys rainfall around 750mm per annum.

The property is bordered by the Kruis River and is bisected by the Huis River. There are a few springs, the largest supplying the main farmhouse by gravity feed.
