Description
The Rotterdam Estate dates back to 1794 and boasts with a rich history and heritage like no other. The farm was founded in 1794 by H Van Volenstee and home to Simon van der Stel, whilst hunting Buffaloes in this area. Also famous for being the home of the late Grand Prix racer, Mr Ian Fraser Jones, and still owned by the family today. The estate shares its rich heritage by offering boutique accommodation in two of its historical buildings namely, De Wagenhuis and the Fraser Jones. The total size of the estate measures 33ha with 18ha of registered water rights from the Buffeljags Dam. The property is also nestled alongside a river, that gives it that picturesque setting, only to be seen in a romantic movie. With more than enough rooms to host 40 guests, entertain them at the pool house or give lectures and training sessions in the trophy room. Fully licenced and equipped restaurant, bar and kitchen to cater for 80 guests at a time. The old dairy and barn can easily be converted into accommodation, warehouse or factory. If you are an old car collector, this is the ideal property to keep all your precious cars or collectables. Whether you want to have horses or cattle roam the estate or farm with fruit and vegetables, this estate is worth much more than the agricultural value.

Do not miss the opportunity to acquire this prestigious property, located next to the 3rd oldest town in South Africa, Swellendam. Swellendam is a small and friendly town set at the foot of the Langeberg mountains in the Overberg district of the Western Cape. Located along the N2 almost exactly halfway between Cape Town and George, it is the third-oldest town in South Africa (established in about 1745) and is renowned for having a large number of heritage sites and excellent examples of Cape-Dutch architecture. This attracts many tourists, who also come to see bontebok and the rare Cape mountain zebra in the local nature reserves, enjoy the beautiful local hiking trails and sample the delights of the many excellent local restaurants and coffee shops. The climate of the area is Mediterranean, with long, dry summers and wet winters when there is often snow visible on the mountains, and Swellendam is accordingly surrounded by picturesque canola, wheat, sheep and dairy farms. Berries are also grown in abundance and this area is in fact now the top youngberry-producing area in the world. As the main commercial centre in the region, the town has a resident population of around 30 000, and boasts several primary schools as well as Swellendam High and the private Olyfkrans College. It also has a district hospital and the SwellenMark regional shopping mall as well as several smaller shopping centres. There are approximately 4000 freehold homes in Swellendam and a few Sectional Title complexes, and in recent years, the peaceful town has become a popular retirement destination. In fact, figures from property data company Lightstone show that some 67% of current home-owners ...
