House Smit, Van der Kloof Dam

This area may seem far and isolated from any big city, but if you farm in the vicinity, this is a serious option for a Karoo weekend retreat. Tourism in Van der Kloof is not what it used to be, but there are decent shops, and the views of the dam and surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful.

The house is a basic shoe box design, built on 2 levels, with the inside / outside entertainment area and guest bedroom on ground floor, and 2 more bedrooms with studio space and pyjama lounge on the 1st floor.

This bachelor decided to take on the challenge of owner builder since he has well skilled labourers on the farm. The steel structure will go out on tender. The completion of this project will certainly help him to get rid of his single status.
