Always loved the Kogelberg? Now’s your chance to invest in the 104 hectare Hangklip Farm bordering Kogelberg Nature Reserve. Covered in the Cape’s unique fynbos and bordering the Palmiet River, this unspoilt coastal property spans mountains and valleys with dramatic views of the lagoon and sea below its stone mountain cottage.
Set high on a rocky outcrop, the farm’s cliffside hideaway has drop-dead views of the sea from its decks on the one side and spectacular mountain views on the other. A rock pool, fed by a mountain spring, is perfect for summer dips, but the big appeal here is the walking and exploring. For much of the year, the flowering fynbos gives a rewarding display – colourful proteas, scented pelargoniums, stately restios, heather bushes and masses of pink and white everlasting flowers bloom en masse. And if you’re lucky, you might spot a klipspringer or two on the rocky outcrops.
A mere 90 minutes from Cape Town, Hangklip Farm offers a pristine and secluded hideaway in the Overberg, with easy access to popular coastal towns like Hermanus and Stanford yet it’s not too far to pop back to Cape Town either.
The existing stone cottage is thatched and has one large bedroom (with a mezzanine opportunity in the high ceiling area), is equipped with solar power, gas and a security alarm. Extensions to the existing property are possible without departure.
