Be off the Eskom grid completely!!
Never pay an Eskom account again! This lovely agricultural holding is operating entirely on solar power! The solar panels and German built batteries are less than three years old and the batteries have a life span of 12 to 15 years. The owner had spent R400 000 on this state of the art solar system! From the house, to the one bedroom flat, to the two boreholes - everything is on solar power! The one borehole draws its power from the solar batteries, while the other has its own plug-in solar panel for direct solar power. For possible long rainy periods, there is even a jack for a generator (the latter not included).
Enjoy peace and tranquility of a farm on this smallholding - watch your own flock of sheep grazing on two large patches of pasture with a lifespan of about 20 years, while enjoying the view of the Magaliesberg mountains. There are two kraals for the sheep, as well as 2.2ha of lucerne (the latter renders 200 or more bales which can be sold; there is a barn with ample indoor storage for these bales).
The smallholding boasts the following:
1. Lovely Cape Dutch style main house - the ground floor has a large open plan living area (kitchen, family/TV room/dining room), 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (1 en suite). There is a large gas stove with electric oven, as well as a lovely, old fashioned Union no. 7 coal stove for the chefs among us - the coal stove is a great asset for cold winter evenings! The loft has a very large bedroom, another room which is currently used for sewing, but can also be used as a study, a bathroom as well as a storage room. This loft leads to an outside balcony - add an outside staircase and the loft is a flat on its own, which can either be used for the owner, or can be rented out. The house has a large stoep with a built-in braai, as well as a very large steel roof attached to the house, which can be used as a large entertainment area, or car port.
2. A matching spacious Cape Dutch style, one bedroom flat - lots of built-in cupboards, bathroom (shower, toilet, basin), open plan kitchen, dining room, lounge, gas geyser, gas stove. Rental income currently R3800 per month.
The small holding is in the De Kroon area, thus making it ideally situated close to the Brits Mall and about 6km from the Brits CBD; also close to the N4 Bakwena Platinum Highway.
Enjoy the best of both worlds - town and farm living!
