Situated within the Cape Winelands, in the foothills of the Hottentots Holland Mountains is the sought after Wedderwill Country Estate. With unparalleled mountain and sea views, and situated in the fynbos Cape floral kingdom, the estate is unlike any other.
Comprising 450 ha in total of which half is allocated to a game park with springbok, zebra, bontebok and wildebeest. The remainder is made up of established walking, hiking and biking trails, vineyards, residential precincts, lifestyle farms, equestrian facilities and dams.
The estate boasts discreet 24/7 state of the art security including perimeter cameras, access control and private security patrols.
Perfectly positioned, this 1 hectare property offers the convenience and delight of being 10 minutes from the beach and shops and 45 minutes from Cape Town ranked as a top 10 city globally. Cape Town International Airport is only 35 minutes away and provides access to the world.
Somerset West, 10 minutes away, is renowned for its excellent schools, with Stellenbosch University a short 35 minute commute. World class Vergelegen Hospital is within a 10 minute drive and is supported by excellent local health service providers across all disciplines.
Importantly Wedderwill is also within a stone’s throw of the heart of the Cape Winelands, top restaurants and numerous golf courses.
The property is your own floral kingdom and hobby farm. The landscaped garden features fynbos and indigenous species moving from more formal spaces close to the home, to less structured and natural spaces as your wander further afield.
There are also almond and olive trees in abundance, which can provide a rewarding and fun project, particularly at harvest time, when friends, neighbours and family pitch in to help with the harvest, after which a lovely al fresco braai or picnic is usually held to celebrate the harvest.
The harvests of the two crops are at different times – almonds are late January to early February, and the olives from mid April to end of May – which spreads the work load, and the yields are normally about 25kg of shelled nuts and approx.. 21 litres of olive oil with about 6kg of olives for eating.
Enchanting pathways, a small dam, orchards and strategically placed lawn areas offer well designed contrast to the fynbos landscape. The variety of planted trees include figs, citrus, almond and olive trees provides hobby farming opportunities and adds to the magnificent outlook and art of living. There is currently a swimming pool under construction.
