Property descriptionSole Mandate
A unique opportunity to purchase a very special and rare property in the Garden Route, nestled in the forested ‘Boschrivier’ valley, with the river flowing through the property, this idyllic valley offers a unique combination of Afromontane forest and fynbos. The property boasts with a historic primary residence, a 2 bedroom manager’s cottage, two one bedroom cottages, an old laboratory, Reception and room for signing of registrar and Bell Tower, coffee shop and several other additional buildings which serve as stores, ablutions, staff facilities and the like, all of which have been modelled in the same authentic Cape Karoo and Cape Georgian architectural vernacular. Bosky Dell’s character and charm has been preserved, and its ‘footprint’ has remained the same for 150 years.
The main house consists of 3 spacious bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms all ensuite, the master bedroom has two dressing areas and 2 full bathrooms, there is a spacious undercover patio with built in braai and outdoor lounge and dining area, 2 lounges (one upstairs and one downstairs), a separate dining room and a very spacious and modern kitchen which is the hub of this house old farm house and a wonderful kitchen to entertain and prepare a loving meal with guests and friends. The kitchen leads out to an additional partly covered garden court yard with swimming pool. The house has three garages and a separate laundry room connected to the garages.
The Boschrivier serves as perennial, potable water supply to the property, which has since been augmented by a borehole. Power to the property is supplied by Eskom, the local power utility, with a current 100kVa transformer. This is supplemented by an auto-mains failure diesel powered generator, rated at 82kVa.In 2007, the current owners developed a formal rose garden which serves as the setting for a well-established wedding and function venue. The wedding venue is made up of 2 Pavillion’s, which are a 100 m² each, and with a center piece in an extent 100 m² between the two pavilions. As mentioned above there are two sets of female and male guest toilets servicing the wedding venue area. There is a main Conservatory area in an extent of 200 m², which is often used for either the ceremony area or private functions and additional seating area.
Lush local flora plays host to an abundance of indigenous animal and birdlife. Bosky Dell’s history can be traced to the mid-nineteenth century, when the charming stone cottage was built by English settlers to the region. To avoid a daily trek to Wittedrift for the settlers’ fifteen children to attend school, a school-house was built. This spectacular garden is home to over 5000 rose bushes, laid out in six distinct spaces, each of which boasts its own character. In 2015, The World Federation of Rose Societies awarded the garden the prestigious ‘Garden of Excellence Award’ (one of only two in South Africa) – presented in Lyon, France – and this remains a popular tourist attraction during the flowering season.
