Sheep farm between Paarl and Durbanville for sale
Tucked away, completely out of sight but deceptively close to a few major routes, this 258ha farm offers real-deal rural living. It has striking views which sweep across surrounding farmland, yet is approximately 15kms from Durbanville, 20kms from the beautiful town of Stellenbosch and 28kms from Paarl. It is currently operating as a sheep farm.
The property is divided into 14 large grazing camps, each with shade-providing trees. A gravity fed water reticulation system supplies animals with drinking water in each camp. The thoughtful setup of this farm makes it easily managed and maintained by only three workers. The inclusion of areas of undisturbed natural vegetation and shade trees in each camp makes the farm ideal for not only sheep and livestock, but small game farming too.
Improvements on the farm consist of a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom wooden cottage, slightly reminiscent of outback living, which serves as the main dwelling. It is set in tranquil, sprawling, natural gardens. A prefab cottage on the farm is rented out, with a further 4 labourers'cottages, all in good condition. A good sized shed, approximately 20m x 8m, is being used as a feed store and is in close proximity to the sheep handling facility. A smaller shed with stables is situated just beyond the periphery of the garden.
For extra measure and interest there a small block of vines en-route from the entrance to the main house. Yields are delivered to the nearest co-operative winery every year.
