De Uitzicht Gentleman’s Estate - popular amongst buyers

If the life of a country farmer has always held appeal, but not the hard work associated with a full-scale farm, then De Uitzicht Gentleman’s Estate in the heart of the Winelands may be the ideal solution. 

There are just three vacant smallholdings still available for purchase at De Uitzicht Gentleman’s Estate in the heart of the Winelands.

Located between the towns of Paarl, Wellington and Franschhoek, the estate consists of just 10 full title smallholdings, all sized between 6.4ha and 7.8ha and offering sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that there are just three erven still available for sale, priced from only R2.793 million, inclusive of VAT and with no transfer fees applicable.
PGP agent James Visser says the lifestyle on offer is one of wholesome family living in a tranquil and scenic environment, with all of the properties offering views of both Paarl Mountain and the Simonsberg. “This is the ideal solution for families wanting to live closer to nature and away from the stress and noise of the big city, yet still be within reach of top schools and other amenities,” he says. “The neighbouring towns are all easily accessible via major roads for schools, shopping and medical care. Yet residents of De Uitzicht will feel a million miles away from the city as they enjoy the rural surroundings and live the life of a gentleman farmer.”

Sized between 6.4ha and 7.8ha, they offer sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. Pam Golding Properties is marketing the erven, priced from only R2.793 million, inclusive of VAT and with no transfer fees applicable.

Visser points out that owners may build their dream home to their own specifications and taste, as well as developing other facilities such paddocks and stables if they so choose. “They could plant a small olive grove, miniature vineyard or fruit orchard,” he says, “or keep chickens to enjoy their own free range eggs for breakfast. And they can do so knowing that the existing Homeowners’ Association will protect their environment from unwanted intensive or industrial development.”
PGP’s area manager for Paarl and Franschhoek, Surina du Toit, says the pricing of the smallholdings is extremely competitive considering their size and location. “This is prime land in the heart of the Winelands,” she says, “an area known for its superb farming conditions including fertile soil, ample water supply and a mild climate. It is no accident that the surrounding countryside contains some of our top wine and fruit farms, or that their natural bounty is feeding any number of highly-rated restaurants which can be easily accessed by residents at De Uitzicht. They will be able to enjoy the very best of country living, without sacrificing the convenience of living close to major amenities. It really is the best of both worlds.”
