Tonteldoos 27hectare Farm

R 1 950 000 For Sale

This beautiful small farm offers the opportunity for a young family to escape the dangers and pressures of the city to live among like minded entrepreneurs, who have decided to adjust their living pace to sane. Several families already home school here. Only 250km to Jhb.
Home to the very successful, fully licenced farm stall / bistro (The Cat & The Cow - see it on google) and a guest ready 1 bed self catering flat which could sleep 5, there is ready income from the get go with trained staff. A well stocked veggy garden provides all the veg required and there are ample fruit trees for canning and jam making. Meat is readily available locally at very favourable prices.
The farm can sustain up to 70 sheep and about 10 cows and houses a 5 berth pigsty and several other good outbuildings, sheep kraals and stores as well as a double volume double garage/workshop. The windmill has recently been refurbished and backed up with an electric submersible pump feeding self filling watering troughs around the property. The electric supply is three phase and has had a new distribution board fitted at the pole to accommodate supply to campers.
There are two perpetual furrows running onto the land for further irrigation and one feeds the storage dam and irrigates all the gardens and the four camps via dragline irrigation. The 2nd Furrow is met in a large wooded area by a stream running from the neighbours farm (see map) this vlei can be cleaned out and dammed for fishing adjacent to a delightful camping space in the wooded area. This area is ready for developing into a possible 6-8 Chalets.
The land is laid to half Kikuyu for grazing and half to Eragrostis for bailing. The farm yields some 200 bales per year.
The 380sqm homestead boasts three large double sized bedrooms each with own bathroom. Another room, currently used as a pantry could easily be made into a fourth bedroom. There is an office and a small central library. Very large sitting and dining rooms. The kitchen is a project in hand.
The sellers sadly need to scale down due to ill health and hope to find a buyer who will see the potential and share the enthusiasm of this lovely little farm in the very heart of a quirky little village bearing an imminently marketable name - Tonteldoos - where the good life lives, nestled at the lee of the Steenkampsberg.
Please feel welcome to ask for further details or to come and visit the farm.
