This beautifully designed double story stone and glass house can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 bedrooms. It has generous communal living spaces that lend themselves to family interactions and activities. The decor is deliberately simple, with concrete floors and finishes, to allow the outside environment and spectacular views to take centre stage. A fully equipped open plan kitchen with magnificent views. Downstairs, a pool table and table tennis table create a perfect kids hangout area.

The space
There are beautiful hikes of varying distance on the property. The property is close to very popular mountain biking routes in and around Breedt's Nek and Hekpoort and surrounds, and 15km from Magaliesburg town. The house can be serviced on an optional basis at a charge of R300 per day payable directly to the cleaning staff.

Please note that there is a 4km sand road between the R24 and the entrance and then a further 500m of sand road on the property to get to the house. A few stretches of the sand road are not in good condition, and a higher clearance car is definitely preferable, particularly if it has been raining. The sand road on the property is in very good condition and easy to drive.

The house has a sophisticated inverter system which provides power to the house during load shedding. However, if load shedding goes on for too long or if there are other serious power failures, there may be short periods without power. There are both battery powered and paraffin lamps for this situation, and it is still possible to cook on the stove but not the oven when there is no power.
This is not a suitable venue for those who wish to visit Sun City which is 90 to 2 hours away.
