A rim flow swimming pool with sun deck looks out over an established garden and open plains area which borders on the Olifants River. The kitchen allows for old world dining with space for a large table and chairs. Passages are wide and bedrooms spacious. Part of the wrap around veranda has been converted for use as a family room or extra working space. There is a free standing building which is home to 2 offices.Water is pumped from the river into 2 settling tanks and used for domestic consumption. A reverse osmosis system filters water to the house ensuring clean drinking water. A third settling tank is used solely for the swimming pool. There is an existing 3 phase Eskom connection and an electric fence surrounds the house, mainly to prevent elephants from penetrating the garden. There is a option to purchase the house furnished.
