This safe and sought after property, located on a north-facing slope offers breath-taking views over Grahamstown. The Agriculturally zoned erf borders on the popular suburb of Westhill. Rezoning for development should be permitted as it is located within the urban edge. The atmosphere is distinctly rural and the soil is fertile.
Being positioned a mere 2km to the Drostdy Arch at Rhodes University allows for quick access to desired facilities.
Sellers information regarding the water supply: raw water feeds via gravity from the Jameson Dam to the property. It arrives in a 1.2 million litre reservoir on site, over which the Municipality has a servitude and right of use, thus they `maintain’ the system. From there the water is used for fish and crops. There is a further 225m3 (225 000lt) reservoir in which water is stored. The water is tainted slightly brown when the dam is low, but the quality is superb.
There is an old borehole, but it’s never been opened to test its’ viability as there is plenty of water on the property to be used. There are 2m3 (2000lt) tanks connected to the house, which is the only rain water collected.
