Comprised 14 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms in the main house, as well as an additional self-contained 3 bedroom cottage, and a self-contained 2 bedroom flat, (both are currently rented to families) this property is never short of potential!

The Restaurant, Cafe and Function center is situated in one full wing of the house and includes 3 rooms (currently used for storage and office space), and a brand new commercial kitchen. Also included in that wing, are commercially approved public bathrooms (M, F, and DIS) and a 250m2 ballroom complete with a stage and sprung dance floor, suitable for all manner of functions and events.

This is a new venture in a well-known winery district with a respected customer base already and further business is not far away! Utilizing many local businesses in sustainable practice, the current owners have gathered a decent following already and are now seeking retirement.
