Well, my wife dragged me up this hill, me saying: No, no – it was a rutted farm road and my Merc 280SL did not like. Pam said: “Sell it, buy a 4×4, look at this – it’s worth it”. I sold her Honda Sports car – yes – and bought the 4×4. But now – our major road is paved, so Porsches and Jaguar drivers get here – if they drive slowly.
We were the first residents on Wedderwill in 1996. We can’t imagine living anywhere else. I am passionate about our piece of Paradise on this earth – many tell me it shows. I enjoy the outdoors (being over 60). Running, mountain biking, sailing, swimming and most of all relaxing with a glass of wine – can all be done right here.
When the crowds descend upon the Cape over December – we stay up here on the hill and enjoy our peace and tranquillity. I have sold most of the properties on Wedderwill. Homeowners call on me to give realistic valuations or discuss whether or not they should put their house on the market or not. I don’t sell anywhere else – but if Country Lifestyle is what you are looking for – you have found the right man.
My wife and I moved to Wedderwill 13 years ago, after seeing an advert in the Sunday Property Times for a house in The Glades.
We visited the Estate and Wolf showed us around, and we quite literally fell in love with the place. It was everything we were looking for: a place in the country not too far from Cape Town, beautiful mountain views and space for our horses! And it was affordable.
Living here has been wonderful, and we really couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. There is peace and quiet, and abundance of bird life, space to walk, cycle and ride horses, and a game park where we are free to wander and enjoy the animals.
The upgraded security with 24 hour guarding and access control means that we feel safe and are able to relax and enjoy life at Wedderwill.
