Exquisite Lifestyle and Equestrian Estate

Exquisite Lifestyle and Equestrian Estate
The surrounding Franschhoek mountains provide a dramatic backdrop for this exquisite private Lifestyle and Equestrian estate located within South Africa’s gastronomic capital, the village of Franschhoek.
The surrounding Hottentots-Holland-, Theewaters-, and Haweqwa Nature Reserves create a property with exceptional privacy in a pristine natural setting. The estate has recently been beautifully renovated to make the most of the surrounding natural beauty, creating a uniquely modern charm within the larger amphitheatre of surrounding mountains and natural ecosystem.
This 24 Ha estate has a spectacular and spacious main residence, large second residence, stables that include a loft apartment, as well as various staff quarters, including a manager’s house, all renovated to high-quality standards. Further found on the estate is a state-of-the-art stable complex, including a mare and foaling barn, a yearling barn, an implements barn, and a pump house.
The property also has considerable water reserves, stored in the two large dams on the property. The dams have a combined capacity of 96 000 cubics of water, creating an abundance of self-sustaining, usable water, fed by mountain streams. The dams have an onsite water treatment plant, ensuring the quality of the water reserves.

A truly spectacular and exceptional property, simply in a class of its own.
