LIFESTYLE PROPERTY
Grasslands farm is over 81ha of land suitable for small scale stock farming, vegetable and flower cultivation, breeding of horses, pigs, poultry, fodder production or simply enjoying a life in the countryside.
PHYSICAL LOCATION
Situated in the middle of a proclaimed 1850 ha provincial Heritage site. It lies approximately 276m above sea level and, as the crow flies, only 10km from the sea.
Early 1820 Settler buildings abound. The Southwell Country Club, where cricket, tennis and socializing are the main activities, is only 3km away. The original farm, of which, Grasslands is a subdivided portion, has been owned by the same extended family since the original purchase in 1835. The main water supply on Grasslands farm is pumped from boreholes, which tap into the source of the Kasouga River, originally known as Twee Fontein in the pre-settler trek Boer period. This water was used to irrigate orange orchids on the home farm from as early as 1800 to
the 1940’s and subsequently, vegetables and flowers for the past 30 years. This abundant source of water makes it an ideal location to farm thirsty crops.
