Full Description

This home was built 10 years ago and has been designed with comfort and elegance in mind. The rooms are spacious throughout and filled with natural light from the many windows and patio doors. There are presently four bedrooms however the property is a registered T7 so there is the possibility of adding 3 more bedrooms to the house. In addition to the bedrooms, large kitchen, spacious lounge and other living areas the house comes with over 7000m2 of land which incorporates a vineyard. The owner has made wine that has then been shipped to the UK – all of the wine making equipment is included in the price of the property.

The potential for this property is enormous. While it would make a large, comfortable and beautiful family home, it would also lend itself to being a beautiful boutique country B&B. There is also the potential to run a winery and sell the products locally or abroad.
