Small farm – 13 hectares of paradise!
Wake up in the morning to the sound of running water from the nearby Langspruit and with Zebra grazing on your front lawn. Spitskop Farm (named after the nearby hill to the north) would suit the individual or family looking to get away from it all. Ideal for an artist, potter, sculptor or writer looking for a peaceful country home and endless inspiration.
This remote and serene property lies a few kilometres north-west of Belfast, Mpumalanga. The eastern boundary of the farm borders Rapids Country Estate, a game farm and holiday destination. The farm is accessed through the main, secured, gate of Rapids Country Estate. There are no fences between this property and Rapids Estate.
The house is structurally sound and has been renovated and upgraded but is still quite rustic and would benefit from a bit of tender loving care. The living room looks out across the verandah and down to the eastern border of the property where the Langspruit flows – the views extending up to the horizon where antelope and ostrich roam in the Rapids Country Estate. The kitchen is country style with a wonderful wood-fired stove. A staircase from the kitchen/dining area leads up to a cosy open plan loft. Two bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms complete the house. At the back of the house is a lock up (roller door) garage. The house is fed by a borehole delivering pure water from the underground aquifer. There are no municipal services. Electricity is provided by a generator or hurricane lamps. A French drain takes care of sewage and a Jojo stores the borehole water.
The farm is bisected by the Leeuwklip road with the house on the eastern side of the road and the remaining 80% of the property on the left side of the road running west along the Langspruit. Here is an opportunity to plant crops or fruit trees or earn agistment fees from local farmers seeking grazing pasture for their cattle. Near the house is a collection of beehives along the banks of the Langspruit (the current owner produces and sells honey locally).
