Office block and water rights for 10HA.
This beautiful farm is situated 15km from Porterville and 22km from Gouda. Stellenbosch (110km) and Cape Town International Airport (131km) are also within easy reach.
The 15 HA property consists of an impressive main house of 960 square meters that is situated in gardens of 2HA, an office block of 260 square meters and 10HA of arable fallow land with 10HA water rights at 8500 cubic meters per hectare.
The main house and the office block are in the same style and have been designed by the same architect.
The main house was built in 1992. It is set in a huge, well-maintained garden of 2HA with lawns and mature trees. It has 5 entertainment rooms, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, large kitchen, laundry, walk-in freezer, cold room, indoor and outdoor braai areas and a large swimming pool. There are 4 garages and ample parking for more vehicles.
The office block can be converted into accommodation and is situated at the entrance to the property. It currently consists of an executive office on the top floor with floor to ceiling windows looking out over the surrounding scenery, a boardroom with a bar area, walk-in safe, kitchen, bathroom area and a shared office space. There is under roof parking for 3 cars.
The property is very well secured by an alarm system. The area around the office block and the main house is surrounded by electric fencing with automatic gates. There is also a prefab managers house on the property, away from the main buildings.
The 10HA fallow land was planted with vineyards which were pulled out about 8 years ago. With the water rights, this area is ideal for producing blueberries. The Porterville area is one of the world’s top blueberry producing regions. Despite high capital investment input costs, blueberries will start providing a return on investment within 9 months of being planted. A full return on investment can be reached within 4 years.
