A Pondoland farm, measuring 2.3ha and described as a “golden ticket” for those seeking “a lifestyle on the wild side”, will be on offer in Rawson Auction Western Cape’s next multiple property sale in Rondebosch on January 30.

The main house also includes three lounges, two dining rooms, a bar area, and two formal kitchens.
One of the kitchens – the largest of three in the lodge – is situated next to the dining room and is equipped with a pizza oven, a stove, a pantry, and a braai area.
The bar area, below the dining room, is on a wooden deck with fabulous views.
The bar is made of indigenous wood, and there are heavy-duty high tables and chairs. This area also has two guest toilets.
The second free-standing house that makes up the lodge offers two bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom.

In addition to the large, lush garden, the property includes outside braai areas and an outdoor Jacuzzi, covered only by thatch, which offers bathers exquisite and long-distance views over the surrounding countryside.
