Hero's Rest (519)

On EXCLUSIVE SOLE MANDATE, especially for you!

Breath-taking views with endless opportunities, where beauty, history, peace and tranquillity are all moulded together in one exquisite package!

The perfect natural setting, a unique chance to embrace the beauty of nature, while preserving this pristine terrain for generations to come, not to mention the farming section, with two good boreholes, 80ha of flat farming area situated on the foothills of the majestic mountain range, the best of both worlds. The “farming section” is suitable for horses, cattle, game or sheep. Ample water includes the two tested boreholes plus a fresh mountain spring, making self-sufficient farming not only a dream but a reality.

With three legal entry/exit points, off the N2 highway, close to Swellendam town, on the gate-way to the Garden Route. Featuring a unique biodiverse ecosystem, an oasis of fynbos biome, home to many endemic plant species. It encompasses a variety of habitats, including fynbos forest areas, mountain hills, rock formations, pools and the beautiful Hessequas River, which runs through the “Nou-Kloof” on this land, where Piet Lafras Uys, the father of the ever so popular Hero, Dirkie Uys was born and raised.

In the Kloof area, where the Hessequas River flows, you can explore the lush haven on hiking trails over the mountain or through the forest. You will encounter wildlife, such as Klipspringer, Duiker, Vaal Rhebok, Porcupine, Otters and various bird species (e.g. the scarce Secretary Bird!). You can swim or fish in the rock pools. Experience the spectacular starlight nights, which gives you the ultimate sense of calmness and relaxation. Feast your eyes.

The stone house, built on the riverbank has two bedrooms and an open plan living area, with rustic braai facilities. A cosy one-bedroom cob-house is built a bit higher up on the river bank. The views from these houses are just breath-taking! Awaiting a new Owner, with a vision for sustainable lifestyle development such as implementing renewable energy solutions, synergetic farming systems, solar farming, or eco-tourism, due to the excellent location, topography and climate. Balancing conservation and sustainable development ensure a harmonious coexistence with nature.

Tourism is a definite option, offering various opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Recreational activities like mountain biking, 4x4 trails, climbing, horse riding, bird watching, hiking, golf, building camp sites, tiny homes, or chalets with hot tubs, for weekend breakaways or holidays will create a popular destination to come.
By conserving and protecting this natural treasure, for whatever purpose, you create a lasting impact and contribute to the global movement of environmental stewardship.

Acquiring as a group or as an individual, is not only an investment, but will contribute to preserving the natural balance for future generations, a legacy you leave behind.
