Video: Plett’s castle up for sale
Vygekraal ‘castle’ on the southern side of Plett is up for sale. It overlooks the rugged coastline to the south with dramatic cliffs and panoramic views. A lifestyle property, this refuge from the hustle and bustle of Plett was built in the late 1960′s using local stone collected from the 66 hectare property.
The living areas flow together and are warm and welcoming with wood-burning fireplaces. The home accommodates 4 double suites with a 5th double bedroom and bathroom set apart from the house for guests. A stone stairwell leads to a private lower-level study.
The kitchen is designed for handling catering with outside laundry and ample storage. There is on-site accommodation for staff (staff quarters and a manager’s cottage). Well-positioned patios take advantage of the spectacular views and, depending on the prevailing winds, you can enjoy outdoor living almost all year round. The northern side accommodates a swimming pool and manicured gardens surround the building.
A winding natural path leads from the castle to a cave that dates back to pre-historic times. This expansive natural wonder was home to people thousands of years ago and various artefacts that have been found on-site. These belong to this home and are included in the sale. A large dam has also been created which can be seen on the western side of the property. Just over 66 hectares of prime, pristine property.
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own your own castle in one of South Africa’s most beautiful places.
