Beautiful little farm in the lush Barberton Valley Kinsdomain Farm, KW9 Waterfall road, de Kaap Valley, Barberton. A Homesteaders Dream A little gem nestled in the Barberton Valley on the Noordkaap river, extremely pretty and lush. Features include: The best weather in the World, due to the higher elevation in a fertile valley. Farm size is 7.7ha with 4ha water rights. 5.5ha of fully grown Macadamia trees in production, equipment includes a 1000L bakkie-mounted spray rig, de-husking machine and 2 wooden drying bins which can accommodate 1.5 tons of nuts per bin. Orchard is on drip irrigation. The Noordkaap river forms the Eastern boundary, which begins its journey at the foothills of the Kaapsehoop escarpment and cascades past the farm over exposed granite domes and over a small Waterfall, giving the road on which the farm is situated its name. This mini ‘Bourke’s Luck’ offers amazing swimming spots in the Summertime, and a heart-warming place to bask in the Winter. Along the rivers’ edge is an indigenous forest area we call the ‘Faerie Glade’, a beautiful band of Matumi trees and unspoilt vegetation, home to many small mammals and birds. Over the years we have planted over 90 fruit trees of various cultivars, including Apricots, Lemons, Limes, Oranges, Naartjies, Plums, Apples, Pears, Grapefruit, Bananas, Nectarines, Peaches, Grapes, ect, there are also 15 beehives positioned around the property. An authentic old farmhouse complete with pressed ceilings and wooden floors is a home-makers dream, the building is structurally sound but needs a loving touch to make it resplendent once again. 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, 2 lounges, large kitchen with scullery and wood stove, a small kitchenette next to the main en-suite, a huge glass-enclosed veranda and an under-cover patio. The swimming pool has been converted into an eco-pool, which offers a natural swimming area, perfect for the kids to enjoy. The huge overgrown garden is a gardeners’ delight with large old fig trees, lush with greenery and teaming with birdlife. Over 80 bird species have been identified over the years, including a resident Wahlberg’s Eagle which nests nearby. A small vegetable garden has been established close to the kitchen and has yielded many a home-grown meal, as well as a traditional wood-fired oven that can bake 30 loaves of bread at a time. We have also had ducks, chickens, horses and geese in the past, which really added to the self-sufficiency dream. The house and garden are securely fenced off (with welded-mesh fencing, not electrified) from the Staff quarters and remainder of the farm, which is enclosed with Bonnox. Eskom supplies 3-phase electricity through a 22KVA transformer (small power). Water is extracted from the river and pumped into a 10,000L tank for household use. Outbuildings include: 1. A building with a workshop, storeroom for drying bins, storeroom for fam implements, single garage & undercover ca
