GENERAL OVERVIEW OF PROPERTY
The property is easily accessed off a tar road (3rd Road/Street) which is off Cedar Road, and 3 minutes’ drive to/from the popular upmarket Broadacres Shopping Centre.
The attractive property slopes gently down from the top (near the sand road where the second entrance is located) and ends at the bank of the Klein Jukskei River. The respective buildings are located at different points and build on flat ground. The long driveway from the main gate (at the river) is flanked by fully-grown pine trees. Birdlife is prolific, adding to the country ambiance.
While the respective buildings are mostly in a state of disrepair, they are mostly sound and the infrastructure attractive. Therefore if bought for family living, renovations would be required.
For business investors, the property aptly lends itself to numerous options - restaurant / pub / community or public gathering location, and could also be hired on an ad hoc basis for functions.
ENTRANCES TO PROPERTY
There are two entrances, one from the main gate on river (leading up to the main house) and another from the sand road around the corner which then splits to go to entertainment/restaurant area and cottage.
