Setting includes trees, lawns, a trout farm as well as the delights of visiting game

In2Assets will on June 26 at 11am auction an upmarket country lodge on a 5ha farm surrounded by a large wildlife estate near Nottingham Road in the KZN Midlands.

Thatchings in Curry’s Post Road with its 12 bedrooms (10 en suite) and expansive entertainment areas will be sold fully furnished. In addition to the main lodge, there are outbuildings with two guestrooms and another double room, currently occupied by the operating couple.

Described as “a jewel in the Midlands Meander necklace”, Thatchings is a popular country-style guesthouse 10kms from Nottingham Road and 2kms from the N3 highway. The lodge is within a two-hour drive of the Central Drakensberg, Sani Pass, Zulu and Anglo-Boer War battlefields, and a San rock art centre.

Thatchings’ setting includes towering pine trees, rolling lawns, and flowerbeds overlooking a picturesque trout dam. The guesthouse is surrounded by 300ha of unfenced private game estate so impala, zebra, wildebeest, duiker and other non- predatory animals frequently wander on to the property.

Andrew Miller of In2Assets, says the property, currently operating as a guesthouse, could serve as weekend retreat or permanent home for an extended family, or remain a guesthouse. “The property is in good condition and the tranquil setting is a major selling point.”

Facilities include:

* Extended function room/conference venue;

* Sunken lounge with stunning views;

* Entertainment room with fire place;

* Large kitchen;

* Dining room;

* Patio; and parking; and

* Self-contained staff accommodation.
