Handpicked for you...

A rare six-bedroomed family home of distinction set on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains on a 15 hectare smallholding, which is part of the historic Boschendal Wine Estate between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. Properties like these rarely come to market. This magnificent 15-hectare property, one of the original Boschendal Founders Estates, offers breathtaking views in every direction from its elevated position. The majestic Simonsberg mountains tower behind it as a truly spectacular backdrop to the equally spectacular homestead. De Oude Zilvermijn, offers generous spaces for extended family living with a footprint of 1 500m2 set within a landscaped fynbos garden.
Framed by packed stone walls and boarded walkways winding down towards its own perennial mountain stream, a large picnic lawn and private lake overlooks the vineyards and valley below. The home itself has been exceptionally well-designed, master-built and finished with meticulous attention to detail. No expense was spared in procuring the
highest quality finishes throughout, from engineered oak flooring to 2,5m door heights throughout, and a spiral staircase leads down to a wine cellar and tasting room. An automated pool cover with integrated solar panels spanning the 20m length of the heated swimming pool.

This home is all about family with a good balance between relaxed, communal open-plan living areas and the more formal, private accommodation of the home. Entertaining is integral to the design of the home, which incorporates an enormous feature kitchen (with separate scullery), dining room, living room and library within a large
but comfortable double-volume space.
