Wa­ter-rich Gans­baai farm up for auc­tion

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

RAW­SON Auc­tions will present the 42.8-hectare Drie­fontein es­tate in Gans­baai for auc­tion on July 24.

Tanya Jo­vanovski, co-fran­chisee for Raw­son Auc­tions in the Western Cape, says the farm is a short drive from the coast, two hours from Cape Town and roughly 40km from Her­manus.

“The farm has three foun­tains which feed dams all year round. This en­abled it to be a ma­jor sup­plier of veg­eta­bles and fruit to Gans­baai’s fresh pro­duce and gro­cery out­lets in the past.

“How­ever, fol­low­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of national chain supermarkets to the area – all with their own sup­pli­ers – the de­mand for th­ese crops dropped. But the farm still has the po­ten­tial to pro­duce good crops.”

It has mixed nat­u­ral-grass pas­tures and fyn­bos scrub­land, and now op­er­ates mainly with cat­tle and pigs.

In ad­di­tion to six out­build­ings, in­clud­ing sev­eral garages, the farm has two large mod­ern houses, of 230m² and 150m².

The farm is sur­rounded by fyn­bos ar­eas with some of the Western Cape’s most at­trac­tive walk­ing trails, and Jo­vanovski ex­pects bid­ding on the farm to start at about R2.5 mil­lion.

The auc­tion is sched­uled to t ake pl ace on Wed­nes­day, July 24, at noon, in Raw­son Prop­erty Group’s head of­fice at 222 Main Road, Ron­de­bosch.
