There’s a reason that farmers from the Western Cape are the most eligible bachelors on Boer Soek ‘n Vrou.
Forget smelly sheep and remote locations – you can live a few minutes drive from a Woolworths and still have a fully functioning farm.
In fact, if you have around R80 million sitting around idly, you could employ it to buy this lovely little piece of land out in Paarl Central, and spend the remainder of your days farming olives.
According to Sotheby’s, the property is “27 Hectares on 2 diagrams”, has “stunning views of the surrounding mountains”, and “this historic farm, established in 1668, has various structures in excellent condition”.
She’s an oldie but a goodie:
The manor house has four en-suite bedrooms, a study, amazing kitchen, formal and informal dining rooms, formal lounge, and an entertainment area overlooking the sparkling pool, which is attached to a complete gym room with sauna/steam room/shower.
Did I mention that upstairs has a 12-seater cinema with a KEF sound system?
There are also five self-catering cottages for when the extended family comes to stay.
The factory building contains a water/beverage bottling facility as well as olive oil pressing and bottling equipment, a luxury office, canteen, staff toilets, storage facilities, a conference room and a ‘cool’ room.
There are also two stable blocks which can stable up to 22 horses, polo/training field and 12 fenced paddocks.
The property boasts 4 000 well established olive trees (Frantoio, Mission, Calamata and Sevelano), so your martini will never be clean again.
I wouldn’t call it a simple life, but there are worse places to call home.
