Among the properties to be auctioned by Rawson Auctions Western Cape this month is a prestige wine estate and export fruit farm in Robertson.

The produce is packed in the farm’s own pack house, which has a capacity of 10000 bins for stone fruit and 10000 bins for citrus.

“There are also eight cold rooms. Vegetables such as butternut and green peppers are also packed on site for export and local markets.

“The farm’s winery has a capacity of 1200 tons, and the orchards on V-trellis systems produce up to 80 tons a hectare,” says Jovanovski.

There are homes for a general manager, a pack house manager, and a farm manager, and labourers’ cottages for 40 permanent workers.

There is also a day-care centre on the farm for farm workers’ pre-school children.

The main homestead on the farm comprises five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a kitchen with a scullery, a laundry, two dining rooms, two lounges, a swimming pool and a double garage.

The second home consists of three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room with barbecue area, lounge, laundry and a double garage. The third house has three bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room and a living area.
