The modern day environment has many people wanting to escape the rat race and every now and then we all fantasise about stepping away from the noisy, always on 'urban buzz' of city life.
However, wanting the best of both worlds is a more likely scenario as most people don’t seem to want to actually leave the city for the country or farm life altogether.
Situated along Constantia Nek on 42 505 square metres of land, the boutique wine farm is a working estate and the vines are tended to by a nearby winery and produce a variety of Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Shiraz and Bordeaux Blend grapes.
The highly sought after merlot grape on the estate has been given that extra special touch as it has been adjusted by the head sommelier of a well-known South African hotel group.
The property also has equestrian potential with seven stables.
The manor house is an attraction on its own, explains Phyl Mc Cance-Price of Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty. He says it is an original 28 year old homestead, which has been renovated and enlarged to create a magnificent five bedroom home.
The gracious open plan house is designed with expansive windows that make you feel like you’re part of the landscape. The lounge is finished with a grand fireplace and beamed ceilings and there is a large music and entertainment room creating that luxurious country feel.
The house comes complete with a wine cellar, three garages and an 11 metre swimming pool.
Constantia is an ideal suburb for people seeking that suburban convenience, that offers close access to the city, says Mc Cane-Price.
Constantia is a historical suburb in Cape Town, it is rich in heritage and holds some of the country’s best wine estates and restaurants. It is close to top schools, a vibrant shopping centre and good sporting facilities.
On the market for R25 million, Mc Cane-Price believes that the property is well-priced.
Considering the sought after location of the estate, the size of property, what the vineyards can offer in terms of produce and the fact that this opportunity does not come around often, this unique property is reasonably valued, she says.
