The Blank Canvas (454)

A very rare find! Proudly on offer under Exclusive Sole Mandate, is this special opportunity, a blank canvas just off the ever so popular tourist Route 62, available to that special person, with a vision!

This well-established Going Concern, was operated as a dairy farm for many moons, with pastures, camps and all necessary facilities in place. But do not let that blur your vision, this farm is literally a blank canvas where you can do cash crops, tunnels, sheep, horses, goats, fruit, berries, nuts etc. Whatever your vision is for the Klein Karoo, you can do it! With so much water and fertile land, you can make your dream come true.

The good news is, not only does it have lots of farming opportunities, it also has huge potential for Eco Tourism. The setting is at the entrance to the very popular Poortjieskloof Dam, which will make it a Tourist attraction of note! The internationally known tourist Route 62, running through the heart of the Klein Karoo, is bordering this beauty, giving ample opportunity to diversify.

The Karoo style farmhouse, in need of some tender love and care, has 3 bedrooms, one and a half bathroom, kitchen, washing room, dining/lounge area and an office. The newly renovated, Manager’s dwelling has two bedrooms and a bathroom with an open plan kitchen lounge area. Four Labourer’s cottages, (one of which is tastefully renovated) could generate a handsome extra income, as tourist accommodation.


There are two barns, two outbuildings and a milking parlour for 8 cattle with 4 milking positions, all in good working condition. Adjacent to the milking parlour is a state of the art cheese factory. Remember, cheese making is a sure money spinner and will bring in an extra income stream. Due to international commitments, the Seller stopped all farming activities on the farm, awaiting the new Jockey to take the farm back to its original glory!

With more than 25 Ha of arable land, you can plant to your heart’s desire. Most of the plantings were pastures for the cattle, which are now empty areas, well rested and awaiting your dream to be fulfilled! Opportunities like cash crops, Fruit, Nuts, Citrus, Olives, actually if you can dream it, you can do it!

The water comes from 3 boreholes, of which two are fitted with submersible pumps (in good working order) capable of pumping 5 000 L/H each and 18 hours of “Shared Mountain Water” out of every 14 days, in a 140mm pipe under about 5 BAR pressure! Not to mention the two irrigation dams, with a storage capacity of more than 100 000 000 Litres of water! A corrugated iron dam with cover can store up to 120 000 Litres, makes irrigation so much easier! Hmmmm … what more could you ask for?

The views are magnificent, the setting is perfect, great value and much more than what meets the eye! Call for a visit!
