For Sale: A Medieval-Style, Mountain-Top Castle With 460 Hectares
Creating a real-life Medieval Castle in the Highlands of the Eastern Free State was a task of epic proportions and now this astounding property could be yours.
Set on an established working farm estate and lying as an unfinished project since the 1970s, the construction of the castle was completed by the dedicated and unwavering Fogg family at the beginning of this century. A road leading you up the mountain gradually reveals both the astonishing views and the medieval-style, sandstone castle in the most unlikely but also entirely appropriate setting – looking out across the timeless landscape of the Eastern Highlands in the Freestate Province.
Currently operated as a boutique guesthouse but equally suited to being a family residence or holiday home, the castle can accommodate up to 8 persons overnight in luxury. All of the suites are exquisitely appointed with Victorian Baroque furniture, 4-poster King size beds, en-suite Victorian bath and separate shower, fireplace, lounge and private terrace. Guests can make use of the Spa, library, theatre and various terraces and lounges to relax, while for the more active; walks, bird-watching, visits to San rock art, hiking, fly-fishing and mountain biking are all on the doorstep.
