“Picturesque Residential Vaal Riverside Retreat” On Auction

A “picturesque riverside retreat” in the form of a large residential dwelling on the banks of the Vaal River will go under Park Village Auctions’ hammer on Tuesday the 7th of July. That’s the word from PVA’s Andrew Dix-Peek who says that the property, which is in “superb condition”, offers idyllic views of the Vaal River and makes for tranquil country living.

The property in question, portion 38 of the Farm Welbedacht, features a comfortable family home, complete with guest suits, ample entertainment areas overlooking the Vaal River, paddocks for eight horses, and staff accommodation set astride land measuring 4.4484 hectares. It is situated on Vaal Eden Road, Parys, Free State.

Approximately 55 metres from the water’s edge lies a single storey residential building of comprising of an entrance foyer, a guest cloakroom, an open plan lounge, dining room, a kitchen with a scullery and pantry, one en-suite bedroom, a large patio and a landing. Adjacent to the main house are two free-standing guest suites, each with a guest bedroom and a bathroom.

A raised thatch entertainment lapa and deck with a fire-pit, a Jacuzzi and a cloakroom overlooks the river, providing a “stunning, ‘infinity-view’”.

The property further boasts a shade-net parking structure, a small thatch-roofed rondavel, a stable with tack room, two storerooms and paddocks for eight horses, a small dressage enclosure, two Wendy house staff rooms, animal enclosures and a water storage tank linked to an equipped borehole water system.

Dix-Peek: “If quiet living surrounded by lush fauna on the bank of the Vaal River is what you’re after, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more impressive home. I liken this property to a private resort.

“While the property offers seclusion, residents also need not worry about being too far removed from any manner of amenities. It offers easy access to the N1 Highway and is only a 30 minutes’ drive from Parys and is less than an hour away from Vereeniging.”

The auction will commence on-site on Tuesday the 7th of July at 12h00 (twelve-noon). Viewing appointments can be arranged by contacting Carol Cherrington on 011 789 4375 or
