Water, water, water! In this second dry season, everybody needs a place where there is water in abundance. This 140 hectare working farm has a majestic century-old homestead, flanked by 13 hectare vineyards (5 ha shiraz, 4 ha sauvignon blanc and 4 ha chenin blanc), one hectare of olives, 4 ha kikuyu pasture as well as 5 workers cottages and a 600 m² shed, comprising inter alia a flatlet, garage and a double garage.
The manor house is split into two levels and two different houses. On the ground floor you have 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 lounges, a bar, lounge and kitchen and on top, there are 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, an open plan kitchen/ lounge/ dining room. The house upstairs has got access with a staircase on the outside of the house. The worker's cottages each have electricity meters and bathrooms.
The farm is blessed with various water sources and reservoirs (including dams). In winter, the 9 dams normally are filled by two mountain streams that run through the property and there are water rights registered for that purpose. The dams have a total capacity of 190 000 m³ when full.
Then there are 23 ha water rights from the Berg River for irrigation. That accounts to 83 030 m³ per annum.
The farm has three boreholes, of which only the strongest one (16 000 l/h) is currently needed for domestic use. The other two boreholes is reported to supply 8000 and 12000 l/hr respectively.
