You’re going to want it, too, but we may have to pool our resources because it doesn’t come cheap.
For a cool R95 million, you can own the historic La Brie, which Knight Frank calls “a hidden gem in the heart of Franschhoek”.
Oh, and that’s R95 million excluding VAT, so remember to chop on another 15%.
There is an added bonus – the farm is “home to one of South Africa’s oldest vineyard blocks, a 4-hectare Semillon which was planted in 1905 and is still producing the Landau du Val Semillon”.
The property dated back to 1689, so there is plenty of history about the place.
More from that write-up:
La Brie is uniquely situated on over 26 hectares in the Robertsvlei Valley with breathtaking views of the Franschhoek Mountain range and landscaped garden from every window.
This gracious manor house exudes an old world charm and luxury with sumptuous living spaces and country inspired, eat-in style kitchen. Original wood burning fireplaces in the lounge and kitchen add to the welcoming atmosphere.
Three spacious en-suite bedrooms with a lavish master suite and dressing room make this a perfect family home.
The private guest cottage has been fully restored with a lounge, dressing room and en suite bedroom. Swimming pool, cobbled patio with a fountain and built-in braai is ideal for alfresco entertaining, surrounded by mature trees and landscaped gardens.
This equestrian property offers stabling for 6 horses, dressage/ jumping arena, lunging ring, 4 large paddocks, feed and tack rooms.
Ja, no, that’s quite something, hey.
