This 6.4 hectare property lies 1.7 k’s west off the main Rheenendal Rd in the sought after area of Highway-West. Distanced from the hum of traffic, this lovely property is a place of tranquillity. The owner and his wife have spent the last 22 years nurturing and expanding the indigenous vegetation and forest, the latter reaching down to a perennial stream flowing under a canopy of green and marking the eastern boundary. The western boundary of the indigenous area features a 1600sqm “secret garden” protected by a grove of nuxia-floribunda. Other featured trees on the property include Outeniqua and Real Yellow-wood, Cape Beech, Ironwood, False Ironwood, Candlewood, Cape Plane, Cape Holly, Tree Fuscia, Crossbery, Keurboom, Buddleja Salviifolio, Buchu and Rhus (various) etc. Plantings in recent decades have concentrated on varieties that attract birds and animals. The bird list is extensive and animal sightings include Grysbok, Bushbuck, Honey Badger, Water Mongoose, Small-Spotted Genet and Porcupine. The third of the property closest to the Highway-West Rd is where the two houses, paddocks and stables are found. The main north-facing house comprises three bedrooms (m.o.s), kitchen/dining room, separate TV room and separate study. The current owners, however, spend most of their time on the long, 3.5m wide covered verandah. The cottage of three bedrooms and one bathroom would benefit from some renovation work but is still easily rentable at about R5000/month. Total tank water storage is +- 45 000 litres. The top paddock is surrounded by post and rail fencing and includes a post and rail dressage arena. The stable yard consists of a feed room, tack room and 2 stables. All perimeter 5/6 strand wire fencing has recently been tightened with posts and droppers being replaced where necessary. Included in the sale price are a Kubota L345 11DT 4x4 tractor (with Northmec bossie kapper and Rondini fertiliser distributor) and a Huskvarna LTH 1842 sit-on mower.
