Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - AUCTIONS -

SIT­U­ATED on the Val de Vie Wine and Polo Es­tate, A&H Pres­tige, in as­so­ci­a­tion with PGA Prop­erty, will auc­tion 296 Val de Vie Es­tate, Paarl, on site on Sun­day, Novem­ber 29, at 3pm.

Val de Vie is fa­mous not only for its wines but for the premier polo es­tate in South Africa, which hosts in­ter­na­tional tests.

The es­tate is also fa­mous for host­ing lux­u­ri­ous wed­dings and celebri­ties.

The dou­ble-storey house will be sold as is, to­gether with its im­ported fur ni­ture and ap­pli­ances. Lo­cated on a huge plot, the house has a liv­ing space of 660m that flows through­out.

Down­stairs is a large self­con­tained room with its own en­trance and a fully equipped kitchen. The main kitchen is open plan with a sep­a­rate scullery and walk-in pantry. It leads onto the din­ing room with views out onto the land­scaped gar­den.

The liv­ing area, with slid­ing doors, leads out onto the out­door cov­ered pa­tio over­look­ing the large pool and Jacuzzi with out­door braai.

A dou­ble garage gives di­rect ac­cess to the house.

Up­stairs there are five large bed­rooms with en-suite bath­rooms and a sep­a­rate study.

The es­tate is sit­u­ated 40 min­utes from Cape Town, and of­fers a fully-equipped gym, ten­nis and squash courts, a 25-me­tre heated in­door pool, two polo fields as well as sta­bling, pad­docks and ex­pe­ri­enced staff. Golf­ing en­thusi- asts have both the Jack Nick­laus Sig­na­ture cham­pi­onship golf course at Pearl Val­ley and Boschen­meer Golf Course as neigh­bours.

The Polo Pavil­ion caters for fam­ily din­ing, with a ci­gar lounge, and vis­i­tors will be able to in­dulge their senses at a five-star bou­tique ho­tel fea­tur­ing a fine-din­ing restau­rant, plans for which are well un­der way. The es­tate fea­tures 1.8km of Berg River frontage with fresh moun­tain wa­ter feed­ing the lakes and vine­yards and at­tract­ing an abun­dance of wildlife.

Es­tab­lished in the heart of this area, the es­tate lies on land that pro­duced its first wine in 1825.

The his­tor­i­cal manor house has been car­ingly re­stored with the cen­turies-old oak trees still stand­ing guard.

View­ing is on Sun­days Novem­ber 8 and 22 from 3pm to 5pm, Thurs­days Novem­ber 12, 19 and 26 from 11am to noon and one hour prior to auc­tion.
