Magnificent 11 hectare smallholding in the Merrivale Birnamwood area, with an elevated panoramic vista, a view to behold.
This magnificent smallholding, Stormridge Farm, is situated in the picturesque and quiet Birnamwood Valley. Boasting a magnificent, modern Homestead with an open plan, double volume lounge/dining room area, 3 double sized bedrooms and a warm and cosy family room. It is a double storied, Natal farmhouse style residence with a very well equipped Kitchen, also open plan off the lounge/dining room, a walk-in pantry and 4 bathrooms which are stunningly finished. A second lounge/reading room and office space upstairs and the enormous master bedroom complete this home’s practical user friendly and very comfortable offering. In addition, there is also a neat flatlet, triple Carport/garage and very well equipped laundry/workshop area. The second 3 bedroomed home of similar design and virtually complete, it is already occupied and tastefully finished so far, but leaves enough scope for a buyer to put their own style into its completion. These homes have an incredible 180 degree view looking outward towards the distant Karkloof range and eastward towards the Hilton, Cedara area. There is scrub timber 6 hectare plantation and a great western view down onto Midmar dam from the homes. It has good Hutton series soils and one has many options that could be implemented on this property, Lifestyle, agricultural, business or development.
Water is aplenty from a good Borehole currently, easily delivering 2400lt per day. The homes are both North Facing and equipped with more than enough JoJo tank Storage volume which hold a mix of borehole and rainwater, harvested off the vast roof areas of both residences. The second resident has not needed to draw borehole water for well over a year. It is a truly, water self-sufficient property. It has ample single phase electricity and a remarkable security system, with remote cell phone access and very well security ring-fenced .The homes all have operational Trellidor products including Rollerstyle and Clearguard protection, Roboguard beams and burglar proofing.
This is an ideally local business owner’s kind of lifestyle property, near to all the Midlands schools, major shopping malls, Hospitals and close to Hilton and Howick, but not too far from PMB.
I could carry on forever trying to describe the Aura of this property, it needs to be viewed, one of the best on the books. Call ASAP to view anytime.
