EXCEPTIONAL HOME FOR SALE ON SOUGHT-AFTER DIEMERSFONTEIN WINE AND COUNTRY ESTATE

EXCEPTIONAL HOME FOR SALE ON SOUGHT-AFTER DIEMERSFONTEIN WINE AND COUNTRY ESTATE
 
One of the most outstanding homes in the Wellington district has come onto the market through Pam Golding Properties.  The Cape vernacular-style home is situated within the sought-after Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate, and offers a mix of stylish modern interiors and elegant traditional façade.  Built just two years ago, in 2007, the home is on the market at R10.5 million.
 
The 705sqm air-conditioned home offers three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three double-volume, open-plan reception rooms for easy entertainment.  Other features include a library and cosy wine cellar with seating for intimate dinners.  Outside, numerous water features create a calm and tranquil atmosphere, while a sparkling rim-flow pool provides a cool escape from the summer heat.  The 1716sqm property also enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
 
PGP’s area manager for Wellington, Surina du Toit, says the Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate is one of the most sought-after rural addresses in her region.  “The estate lies just 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, but feels like it is a whole world away from the city,” she says.  “It lies in the shadow of the Hawekwa Mountains, and offers panoramic views of both Du Toit’s Kloof and Bain’s Kloof.  It has been owned by the Sonnenberg family since the early 1940’s, and they have invested significantly in the property to create the stylish yet laid-back country atmosphere we see today.  The old manor house or “Groot Huis” has been preserved and along with the magnificent gardens is highly sought-after as a wedding venue.  The first vineyards were planted in the 1970’s and have gone on to produce award-winning wines from their very first vintage.  The 70-unit residential portion of the estate was launched for sale in 2001, and offers the best of the wine-farm lifestyle, with none of the responsibilities.  A bonus for all owners is that they receive discounted sales on all Diemersfontein wines, as well as an annual allocation of 72 bottles per year – and all this, without turning a single sod, as all vineyards are managed by the farm’s owners.”
 
PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, adds that the estate has sophisticated infrastructure, including 24 hour manned security, intercom links to all homes, electrified perimeter fencing and access control.  “This ensures that residents can enjoy the magnificent surroundings and the outdoor lifestyle, with total peace of mind.  Other facilities which owners can enjoy include horse-back out-rides, a superb restaurant, fly-fishing, conference facilities and even a private pre-primary school.  With all this on offer, coupled with a truly spectacular home, we anticipate that this very special property will appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers, from overseas investors to Gauteng residents seeking a country escape, and even Capetonians wanting to move to quieter surroundings.”
