A golden opportunity in Franschhoek

Although there is a general shortage of properties in and around Franschhoek, Sotheby’s International Realty continues to obtain mandates to market and sell outstanding homes in this area.


 
Having recently sold a farm for R25m, for example, the global group’s local franchise currently has more than 10 other farms and smallholdings on its books, ranging in price from R5,9m for a 6,4ha smallholding on the banks of the Franschhoek River to R27m for a 35ha plum and olive farm high on the slopes of the Wemmershoek mountains that boasts two houses and eight cottages, plenty of water and numerous outbuildings.
 
It is also marketing Vigne D’Or (Golden Vine) – a 47ha lifestyle farm situated just 8km from the centre of Franschhoek and less than 5km from the prestigious Bridge House private school.


 
The farm boasts the original farmhouse circa 1840 as well as a four-bedroom contemporary main dwelling designed by Greg Wright, with a pool and an expansive entertainment patio that provides panoramic vineyard and mountain views.
 
Part of the farm is planted with 15 000 olive trees, 2000 lemon trees and 7ha of chardonnay and sauvignon blanc grapes, and it has a natural dam and unplanted arable land to allow for further development.
 
Perfect for buyers who would like to relocate permanently and raise a family in the country,Vigne D’Or is also very well located as a lifestyle investment for those who wish to explore the Franschhoek valley and the Cape Winelands from time-to-time.
