This truly rare 158 ha piece of farmland that has recently come onto the Hermanus property market, lies at the south end of the Hemel & Aarde Valley. It has magnificent views to the north across the valley and towards the west across the Bot River lagoon and sea. There is very little to compare when it comes to possibilities such as agri- or eco-tourism or your own lifestyle farm. It also boasts stunning vistas of Walker Bay from the upper reaches of the mountain slopes on the farm, where weekend cottages can be established for a perfect weekend escape. The current owners are in the process of cultivating a 2,5 ha patch of sought-after Protea species.
The 495m² main house includes large double-volume living areas with an impressive fire-place, the kitchen has an AGA stove, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4 garages and an extensive timber deck on the sea-facing side of the dwelling.
A 2-bedroom cottage occupied by long-term tenants provides an additional source of income. The farmstead is completely off the grid and power is generated by 6 photo-voltaic solar roof panels feeding into 18 x 2V cells connected to a 36v inverter.
Groundwater is abstracted by solar pumps from 2 boreholes that yield 12 000 litres and 20 000 litres per hour.
The Hemel-en-Aarde wine valley is one of the popular attractions of Hermanus, offering a range of wineries with wine tasting and restaurant facilities among spectacular vineyard, mountain and landscape views.
Hermanus offers one of the best lifestyles in the country with a broad range of property to choose from, ranging from affordable to top class luxury seaside homes priced in the upper millions. It is a fantastic holiday destination and one of the best places to live, retire and raise children.
