Dullstroom is a popular weekend resort town for both fisherman (winter) and golfers (year round), situated at 2000 meters above sea level, about 260km east of Johannesburg en route to Kruger Park. It is a historic village dating back to the late 1800s, with a variety of restaurants, shopping facilities and various outdoor activities, .e.g. horse-riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, and clay pigeon shooting.
The estate is 10 hectares, with two small trout dams (catch and release), and views extending 20+ kilometers across the village and a rolling plateau to pine plantations in the distance.
The house is double storey, with an open plan lounge (living room) with a fireplace open on both sides, kitchen and dining area, built-in bar, and double garage. The house is serviced daily, at no extra charge (but tips to staff are appreciated).

Year Purchased: 2010
About: I'm a Canadian who has been living in South Africa for 35 years. Most of my career was in banking, and I'm now doing consulting work in South Africa and elsewhere.
Why Dullstroom, South Africa:
I first arrived in South Africa in 1981, and over the years 1984 to 1987 spent many weekends touring the then Eastern Transvaal, including Kruger Park, Sabie, Nelspruit, Hazyview, Barberton, and so on. We would usually stay at a friend's cottage in the Highveld region, which gave us easy access to the Middle- and Lowveld areas. At that stage, Dullstroom was a village that hardly warranted a second glance as one passed through. Today Dullstroom is a bustling little tourist resort, catering primarily to weekenders from Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Nelspruit. Besides the restaurants and shops, there are also attractions like the Birds of Prey Rehabilitation Centre, Dmitrov Art Gallery, World of Whisky (2nd largest selection in southern hemisphere), and Anvil Ale microbrewery.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I can still remember the look on my wife's face when we first saw the house, it was like 'Oh, my God!' Or as a friend of mine stated, 'But your country house is not supposed to be nicer than your city house!' We were looking for a weekend cottage, but we ended up with a home that we could retire to. The property is expansive, and if you have the luxury of being there midweek you're practically guaranteed to have the estate to yourselves. Definitely peace and quiet, excepting the chorus of frogs that almost never fails to entertain during the early evening. Perhaps the only disruption is the local pub, which on occasion can be heard over the frogs.
