Heros Rest (519)

Spectacular farm where a Hero Lived! This versatile farm, offers you the best of both worlds! In the front, on the foothills of the majestic mountain range, you have the farming section where you can get your hands dirty, farm to your heart’s desire! When you venture into the narrow gully, with breath-taking rock formations on both sides, you enter a peaceful haven with a river running through it! The so-called rock-pools with a view! So much potential, with options unimaginable! If you can dream it, you can do it.

The farming section: (Close to the N2)
It consists of roughly 50Ha of Wheat or Oats under dryland conditions, planted on the foothills of the mountain and it houses between 40 and 50 Cattle at a time (not included in the price!). With the new “Green Sprout Farming” concept, you can increase this number dramatically, even sheep or game can work here. The Farmer at heart, can take this to the next level. Then there are more flat areas (roughly another 30Ha) that was planted many moons ago, but the contours still exist, so permission should be granted to re-introduce that into active farming again, if you so wish? There are two boreholes, recently drilled but not serviced with pumps yet. This is a water rich area, so if you want to go big, drilling another borehole for irrigation on this side of the mountain, is definitely an option.


The spectacular section: (Inside the mountain)
When you venture into these breath-taking mountains on a very easy 4x4 road, you soon end up in paradise. Hidden away, away from it all, no-one in sight, you find yourself in this lush haven of river, mountain and green forest. The beauty will take your breath away. If it is good enough for Black Eagles and Klipspringers, it is good enough for me! What about you? With so much water available from the river, self-sufficient farming is definitely an option. Tunnels, Hydroponics and even Aquaponics are all options that can be explored. There are natural fish in the ponds. The beautiful Heskwas River runs through the “Nou-Kloof” on the farm, where Petrus Lafras Uys, the father of the ever so popular Hero, Dirkie Uys lived. Amazing rock formations, majestic big trees and the river that never stops, what more can you ask for? It is just breath taking!

A very quaint and cosy one-bedroom cob-house is built on the river bank. The rustic main house has two bedrooms and an open plan living area. The views from the houses are just breath-taking! Although tourism is a definite option, activities like camping, mountain biking, climbing, bird watching and hiking are all on the radar. Having said that, at this price you might decide to keep it all to yourself and not tell anybody. Nobody will know, you enjoy! Payment structures are available.

Book a viewing, you will not be sorry.
