Two Beautiful large farms in Cove Rock
These farms are immaculate!
The larger portion measuring 26 hectares offers a grand farm house with top security in a safe area with distant sea views and valley views! The smaller portion measuring 4,5 hectares of land has sea and river frontage views and has some magnificent views of the rock face cliff.
The large solid farm house, is complimented by 4 separate established flats on the property.
The original farm house is double story with a slate roof. Upstairs in the main living area of the house is a beautiful thatched entertainment area. There is a small plunge pool situated upstairs on a timber deck and a large braai lending out from the entertainment area. Years ago the large house and some of the outbuildings were changed into small income generating flats and these could be used as a b+b or to house extended family.
The outside buildings consists of 10 garages, one double carport, one large farm workshop. There is an option to convert the workshop into a 3 bedroom house or into horse stables. There are two outside flats and there is an opportunity to convert additional rooms into a third cottage.
The farm entrance is off Marine Drive and the farm road is concrete strips leading through an impressive thatched entrance with remote sliding gate to the farmhouse.
The main farm house has about a 2.00 meter high face brick and palisade security wall with an electric gate. The top of the wall is electrified with an alarm siren. The house alarm has 2 side beams and is wired to 5 of the garages. The alarm is monitored by a response company.
This grand old house was very well built and is about 70 years old and has no structural damage. This is a magnificent property close to town and close to the airport and has beautiful sea views and also a view of Cove Rock. On both sections of ground the lands have been planted with star grass that is ideal for horses, cattle and game.
Additional information on the farm is as follows: –
Portion 1 of the farm measures about 26 hectares and Portion 2 measures about 4.50 hectares. The East London Municipality has a registered servitude along the Marine Drive Rd for a water and sewerage main. This farm is well suited to a developer in that they can connect to the Municipal Services without incurring any installation costs.
All the invader bush has been cleared meaning almost all of the land can be utilised for development. The farm is connected to municipal water.
There were 2 boreholes on the farm and both delivered good water but they are not currently in use. The farm is supplied with electricity from Eskom – 3 phase connection. Both portions of the farm are game fenced but not electrified.
There are about 40 to 50 Impala on the farm and some other indigenous buck. The buck are being sold with the farm and the owner could introduce other buck for his private game reserve. The Hickman’s river boundaries both portions. There are some lovely yellow wood and other indigenous trees growing along the cliff face.
This property lends itself to be turned into an income generating up market B+B close to the airport. The large house and adjoining flats would be ideal for a large extended family.
A wonderful opportunity to own your own private game reserve near to town. Gentleman’s horse breeding estate and stabling close to town. It would also be excellently suited to a wedding or event farm. Both sections of land are in the East London re zoning footprint. Cove Rock Country Estate which is the neighbouring coastal estate to the farm are further developing on two of the farms boundaries (front and side).
