A River Runs Through It…,

395 hectare lifestyle property on auction in Ashburton

We proudly present a piece of African paradise in this most magnificent 395 ha + lifestyle game farm (made up of 3 separate farms) with a beautiful dam and luxurious homestead of over 1200m2. A decades old railway bridge, an engineering marvel, adorns the entrance to the farm, from where the path gently meanders along thorn trees and grassland over a river crossing where you often see giraffe, zebra or nyala quenching their thirst.

Situated in Ashburton, just 20 min from Pietermarizburg’s CBD, an hour from Durban and 90 min from the Drakensberg Mountains, the farm is positioned with easy access to major routes. A mere 12km from Oribi Airport with daily flights to Johannesburg, or only 75min from King Shaka Airport, but you may never want to leave, such is the beauty and tranquillity of this retreat with magnificent terrain to explore by walking, running, mountain or motor biking, horse riding and enjoying picnic spots along the river. The large dam offers ample irrigation, as well as recreational fishing or paddling. It also forms a pivotal part of this undulating landscape with cattle, and over 250 head of game, including Giraffe, Kudu, Zebra, Waterbuck, Nyala, Impala, Duiker, Jackal and Caracal, as well as excellent birdlife, including resident Martial eagles, Fish eagles & many other species.

The magnificent homestead is only 12 years old, yet exudes old-world charm with its lofty ceilings, reclaimed flooring and solid wood feature doors reminiscent of historic villas in KZN. Designed with modern luxury, convenience and comfort in mind, no expense has been spared to make this a gracious dame, detailed and stylish in every room. The many wonderful features require viewing and consideration to be appreciated, as they are too many to list in a mere description. Worth highlighting though is the conservatory, the Hollywood styled main bedroom and the spa/salon. The security includes a sophisticated layered security system starting with traffic monitoring on the district road through to, CCTV, electric fence, beams, armed response & strong security bars/gates.

Outbuildings include a gym, a barn purpose built to fit a helicopter, generous storerooms, and double staff rooms with a communal living area, to name but a few.

Irrigation is fully automated, supplied by borehole water.

Please call me for more details and an exclusive appointment to view this glorious farm. All offers received before auction will be submitted to the seller for consideration.
