Own the dream lifestyle on Constantia Nek

A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a boutique wine farm and/or equestrian estate in one of the most prime locations in all of the Cape. 


Constantia Nek Farm occupies 10 acres on the border of Upper Constantia and Hout Bay. The pristine property is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R25 million (price inclusive of VAT and with no transfer duties applicable).

Constantia Nek Farm occupies 10 acres on the border of Upper Constantia and Hout Bay – a position which affords its sweeping mountain and vineyard views, as well as unique access to the southern slopes of the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP). The property is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R25 million (price inclusive of VAT and with no transfer duties applicable).
 
PGP agents Ingrid Hoaten and Lesley Payne say the property offers a lifestyle without comparison, with a comfortable family homestead surrounded by rolling lawns, lush vineyards and a mature garden. “Currently the farm has 3ha under vine,” they say, “with cultivars including Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and Viognier. Should the new owner wish to take an active hand in farming, they will find the vineyards in pristine condition, with ample water supply via a seven-station computerised irrigation system, fed by the property’s substantial stream and perennial dam. However, should the new owner prefer to live the wine farm lifestyle without the associate labour, they can opt to continue with the current arrangement which sees the vineyards leased out to other local farmers.”

Hout Bay and Upper Constantia are both popular areas for equestrians, and should the new owners choose to develop this aspect of the property, they will find seven existing stables which could easily be restored and modernised. The farm has permit-controlled access to the restricted Orange Kloof area of the TMNP, a highly regarded location for outrides of unsurpassed beauty.
 
The farm’s main homestead dates back almost 30 years, and has been enlarged several times during that period. Its current layout offers 800sqm of living space, including five bedrooms, three of them en-suite, and spacious open-plan living areas. These include a formal lounge with a fireplace and crystal chandelier, a dining room with picture windows offering panoramic views, and a casual lounge with a bar area, flowing seamlessly out onto the pool deck. The 11m swimming pool is solar heated and has a convenient electronically-operated cover.

Additional features of the main homestead include a north-facing sunroom, study with beautiful beamed ceiling, a casual entertainment/conference room, and a farm-style kitchen with granite counters and Oregon pine cabinetry, as well as a pantry and separate laundry.
 
The property also includes a separate flatlet, ideal for extended family or guests, as well as staff accommodation and two large sheds or workshops. There is a triple garage, plus ample additional off-street parking.
 
Security is multi-layered, including an alarm system, perimeter beams and a 24-hour manned entrance gate, as well as electric fencing. The southern side of the farm borders the award-winning Houtkapperspoort property, and benefits from the extensive additional security features of this resort.

      The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
