4 Bedroom House For Sale in George Rural

Strawberry Hill gives one the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and yet is so close to the golden beaches of Wilderness, the magnificent Afro-temperate forestation and the facilities the sought-after town of George has to offer. Two deep ravines of approximately 100m in height, separate Strawberry Hill from neighbouring properties.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and put your roots down in this spectacular area and start your new business venture at Strawberry Hill! Just a few of the potential uses of this property are listed below.

This hilltop property, with a flat, cleared area of almost 8 hectares, on which the homestead, cottage and other outbuildings are positioned, features two river boundaries, the Silver and Kaaimans, that meet at the southern point before leading out to the sea. Both the world famous “Map of Africa” and the Indian ocean are clearly seen to the south from atop Strawberry Hill. To the north of the homestead and property are the most magnificent and panoramic views of the entire and mighty Outeniqua mountain range.

This unique property features in the main, centuries-old indigenous forest with several hiking trails of which the Fern Trail, of approximately 5kms winds its way up and down through the forest and down to the bordering river with its waterfalls, magnificent boulders, ferns and pools. There are four river crossings. The Kaaimans Gorge from Strawberry Hill to the sea, takes about 3 hours and is very popular with international tourists. The route goes through some spectacular and narrow gorges, with compulsory swims. It is a must for the more adventurous.

There are 86 tree species identified on the property, which include Afrocarpus falcatus (Giant Yellowwood) and the Endangered Ocotea bullata or (Black Stinkwood). 30 different indigenous Fern species and indigenous flowering plants are found along the Fern Trail. The featured Fungi are just scratching the surface and the forests and paddocks carry a huge variety and Mosses, Lichens and Fungi. The bird life is abundant, with the Knysna Loerie probably the most spectacular and iconic and is frequently seen.

And finally, some of the wildlife that has been seen on Strawberry Hill includes Nyala buck, leopard, ‘ratel’, porcupine, rooi kat (lynx), bush pig, field mice, monkeys and baboons.
