NaN Ochre Reserve
De Doorns, De Doorns
Scenic Lifestyle Farm, Hex River Valley

Ochre House on the Ochre Reserve is perched on top of a small mountain spur and is well described as the house built on the rock. The site was chosen for its magnificent views in all directions and its late afternoon sunshine during winter. The house has three spacious en-suite bedrooms, each with external entrances, as well as an en suite outside room, ideal for staff accommodation. The very spacious open plan living area has large windows and stackable glass doors which open out onto generous outdoor living areas. The front deck has a sunken swimming pool and a covered deck sheltered from prevailing winds. The back deck is covered by a vine which provides a cool escape from the summer heat. The main living area features a massive fireplace, which keeps the big room toasty during winter and is a defining feature of the room. The main kitchen is open plan and only separated from the living area by a granite-topped counter. There is a utility scullery/washing room attached to the kitchen. There is also a stackable folding glass door which separates the living area form the bedroom wing of the house, adding additional privacy and security. In addition to the main living area, there is also an extra guest bathroom, a generous foyer/tv room and a separate room ideal for an office space. The house also has a generous cellar, accessed by a recessed staircase from inside the house. In addition to the main house, there is a separate cottage 30m from the house. The cottage also has magnificent vistas and is designed with the same large stackable glass doors. It consists of a large en suite bedroom and a very spacious living area with a kitchenette and guest toilet.

The Ochre Reserve is 13.846 hectares in size and is a section of mountain property which adjoins vineyards on two sides and is easily accessible from the valley floor. The land is entirely uncultivated and covered in pristine local mountain fynbos vegetation. The indigenous animals in the area are found on the property and these include rock hyraxes, klipspringer antelope, porcupines, black-backed jackals and occasionally, the Cape mountain leopard. The reserve has abundant birdlife with regular sightings of several species of eagles and owls. There are also magnificent examples of ancient San rock art at several sites on the reserve. The property is at the foot of a mountain and has several established private hiking routes on the mountain property. These are safe walking routes and afford magnificent views of the valley and the mountains surrounding the reserve. One hectare of the property surrounding the homestead is completely fenced. Access to the property has two electronic gates, one at the entrance to the property off the tarred road and one at the fence surrounding the homestead. The property has a water allocation of 10 000 cubic meters per annum and the water supply to the property is delivered under natural pressure.
