A pot of gold in Franschhoek

Residential land is a rare commodity in and around the idyllic winelands town of Franschhoek, so finding a smallholding for sale with a brand new house on it is like discovering treasure – twice.

This spacious family home that makes the most of spectacular views of the surrounding mountains is on sale through Sotheby’s International Realty Franschhoek for R19,95m.
However, this is what Sotheby’s International Realty is now privileged to present to potential buyers: a rare smallholding of 8800sqm in the upper Franschhoek Valley, on which the owners have just built an impressive family home that makes the most of spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
Just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of the village, the 552sqm house is set in a well-established garden and offers a large living area with fireplace, a separate TV lounge, study and kitchen with separate pantry. There are also three ensuite bedrooms, a linen room and a guest toilet.

Additional features include a separate dressing room and outside shower off the main bedroom, a gym adjacent to the double garage and a conservatory/gazebo next to the swimming pool, complete with gas fireplace and stacking doors, as well as double staff accommodation, a pump room and a storeroom.
The house is airconditioned throughout, and there is an excellent security system including alarm, beams and cameras. There is a borehole for irrigation, a generator for emergency power, and an eco-friendly sewage system. A ride-on lawnmower is also included in the purchase price of R19,95m.
