Description
The sought after 4158 ha livestock and game farm, Sunnyside, located in the Willowmore district is for sale. This Eastern Cape farm is situated close to the border between the Eastern and Western Cape provinces, halfway between Willowmore and Prince Albert.

Approximately 1000 hectares are game fenced with the fence spanning some 28 kilometres. All boundary fences are jackal proof and in excellent condition.

The property lies in the vicinity of the Traka and Karee rivers. A large natural dam with a concrete wall lies at the southern boundary of the property. There is a servitude for excess water from this dam, which is clearly marked. Two more natural dams are on the property.

This is not a typical Karoo farm, but rather a combination of Karoo plains and scenic mountain and valleys areas.

The farm infrastructure is in good condition, with a large 594 square meter homestead, functional sheds and stores and three and two room labour cottages. The sheds and stores include a meat processing facility, fully equipped shearing shed, excellent livestock handling facilities and a hangar for light aircraft. (For the latter there are two landing strips).

Electricity supply is provided by a combination of a diesel generator, solar for lighting, and gas for appliances. Water supply to the homestead and staff quarters is provided from boreholes and rainwater tanks.

A semi stationary diesel engine, fixed to a submersible borehole pump, provides water for irrigation and also used to supplement the needs of the farmstead infrastructure and homestead.

Game on the property includes stag, spring buck, blue and black wildebeest, gems buck (oryx), zebra and a variety of smaller game. An impressive list of movable assets are also included in the sale, and includes tractors and equipment used for preparing, irrigating and harvesting irrigation lands, bakkies, tractor fitted grader, dam scraper and jumper drill (for planting poles), bench drill, etc.

The farm is in a recovery phase after the severe recent drought, and save for the game on the farm, all other livestock had been withdrawn from the farm. The grazing has been rested for at least a twelve month period in order to enhance this recovery.

This property could deliver a sound return for the investor.

Of note is another property of 1524,5 hectares from the same owner for sale, 20 kilometres toward Prince Albert, just across the border in the Western Cape Province.

For further information, feel free to contact the agent.
