Change your Lifestyle – Enjoy “Real Country Living “ on the Wedderwill Country Estate, just 8km from Somerset West.
The setting of Mt. Olive encourages you to sit on your veranda and watch the sunrise – or set – with the mountains as your canvas. There are breathtaking vistas of the magnificent Hottentots Holland mountains from almost every window, together with views of the Game Reserve, towering trees and orchards and vineyards. You can watch the Quaggas, Bontebok, Springbok, and Wildebeest roaming and grazing. What could be more relaxing?
As you enter the 6700 sqm property you will feel a connection with the environment surrounding you. The olive orchard (250 trees), the fynbos garden with its beautiful Restios and Lavender bushes and the vineyard, lead you to begin to comprehend just how special the Mt. Olive Homestead is.
The spacious Homestead offers an abundance of space, quality finishes and an “indoor/ outdoor lifestyle” for the “Entertainer”.
Family life centres around the Kitchen/Family room which opens to the inner courtyard with a Pizza oven – and on the other side to the other expansive veranda inviting you to entertain friends and family.
The Lounge –The dining area exudes class and spaciousness. The double-sided fireplaces provide cosiness on chilly winter evenings. The high, wood-lined cathedral ceiling gives it a special atmosphere.
3 Bedrooms, all en suite; plus a self-contained guest flat. (check out the pictures)
There is also a large Study in the loft, for those of us who work from home – away from it all.
The guest flat is currently used as a wine-producing facility. It houses the climate-controlled wine cellar (see pics) together with a Kitchen (for use by guests) as well as a bedroom with an en suite bathroom in the loft.
3 garages for all your toys.
The olive orchard and the vineyard -offer two options of being managed – plan A – you direct the outsourced team and become a hobby mini farmer – or plan B – you outsource the entire management and just enjoy the fruit of their labour.
Watch Rob’s video re his vision and what he has got out of giving back to nature.
Lorian has a passion for Olives and products made out of Olive oil. Her “de Werf” Olive oil has won an award. Watch the video where she tells you how easy it is and how much fun she has had with her Olive Orchard and the products she has produced.
Rob and Lorian have had many years of producing their own wine (300 bottles pa) and olive oil. (see videos). The Olive oil produced has won awards, and the Garagiste winemaker/owner is keen to help and advise should you require it.
