Our home

We have a 3 bedroom house in it's own grounds and well established garden. The house is single story and on one level in a street with other properties. There is a remote controlled gate and fencing around the property. We are on the edge of town approx 250 metres from the local police station. The house has a braai area, (which is South African for BBQ) for outdoor living and I also use it as an art studio whilst learning oil painting. There is a quiet area with a fireplace and a separate lounge/TV room. The three bedrooms all have their own ablutions but there is only one bath and 3 showers.
One of the bedrooms is set up as a self contained flat with it's own kitchen,shower room and entrance. There is a double garage with workshop and parking for up to 4 cars.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are Andy and Mary and have had the house in Fouriesburg since 2001. When Andy retired from Sussex Police and Mary retired from NHS nursing in 2010 we moved out full time to enjoy our early retirement. (we are only in our fifties). We have a guest house in Clarens which keeps us busy.
    Things have changed recently with the arrival of a new granddaughter in the UK which is why we want to try and spend some quality time in the UK.
    We also have a dog called Smudge, he is a Bouvier and very friendly and he is in charge of the place when we are away. (We can get him looked after if preferred).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Fouriesburg is a small old fashioned town in the Eastern Frees state. Situated 9km from the border crossing into Lesotho and 90 km from the Ski resort at Oxbow Lesotho. We are also 35 km from the world renown town of Clarens which is a Mecca for artists and has many galleries and restaurants. We are at 1740 metres above sea level so temperatures are much more reasonable in Summer. Winter can be frosty in the mornings with wall to wall sunshine by day. Rain only comes in the summer via thunderstorms.
We have a few shops and restaurants and pubs in the town and one hotel. The major supermarkets and shops are in Bethlehem 45 kms away. We are centrally placed between Johannesburg and Durban.
The main industry is farming both cattle and crops including Cherries and asparagus.
The town is very safe with few of the problems associated with the cities.
