Description

So what happens when one of the worlds most creative couples find a ramshackle Karoo farmhouse? They cant resist giving it a makeover... and more. This cool country farmhouse retreat is every bit the designer escape, but is equally reminiscent of life in the Klein Karoo a hundred years ago. Welcome to Pear Tree Farm, a heavenly retreat. Creating a relaxed, playful escape for their kids on their 78 hectare farm was more fun than they ever thought it would be and today its everything youd ever want for a weekend away with space for up to 16 friends. To begin with, it has the ultimate luxury in the Klein Karoo: water. Lei water tinkles through troughs in the garden and theres a pool in the old cattle kraal surrounded by dry packed stone walls and with a peaceful view across the olives, ostriches and tobacco fields in the fertile valley below perfect for the hot, still summer days. Inside, the whitewashed 100-year old interiors are every bit as laid-back as youd want them to be yet oozing with eclectic inspiration juxtaposed with the best of contemporary South African design and ceramics. Youll find original art (childrens art rubs shoulders with Kentridge), antiques, recycled furniture and beautiful linen (with summer or down duvets and electric blankets) together with thoughtful touches Harpers, Tatler and Vogue, and loads of DVDs for adults and kids, plus puzzles and toys. Choosing your bedroom could be difficult will it be the one with the Droog-inpired ostrich chandelier above the Cape Dutch gable headpiece? Or the botanical prints as wallpaper? Or the four-poster master suite in black and white? The large airy kitchen with its clotted cream Aga (and fabulous pots and glasses) is a gathering place for friends preparing for slap-up farm breakfasts or meals outdoors in the garden (theres a full gas hob and bbq) or around the boma fire pit on balmy, starry evenings... all perfect ingredients for a farm holiday thatll restore and revive. Winter time is special here: pack your bikes, light the fires and laze in the sheepskin-lined Adirondack chairs on the sunny stoep. Come spring, the mountains burst into swathes of purple, lavenders and pinks and theres water running everywhere time to walk and come back to good food. You cant beat slow-roasted local lamb.In the farmhouse (4 bedrooms sleeping five adults and three kids): The master bedroom off the stoep is ensuite with a childrens bedroom leading off the bedroom (bunk).A double bedroom with a separate walk-in shower room.A third single room leads off the dining area and onto the stoep. The double and single room share a bathroom (rolltop Victorian bath and shower).The stable (3 bedrooms sleeping two adults and two kids):A huge building with its own entrance and converted into a master suite with a large en-suite, a living area and a kids bedroom leading off it. The third en-suite guest room has its own entrance.Sleeps 12Bedrooms 7Bathrooms 5 Swimming pool
