South African Ranch Overview

This South African ranch once belonged to famed golfer Gary Player. In addition to a private golf course (of course), the farm also has facilities for raising and training racehorses with stables, treatment rooms and an oval race track.

Lawn and House at Night

Acres of lawns and forests encompass the property and all its amenities. There's also a tennis court, private chapel and several guest units.

Entrance Courtyard With Koi Pond

One of the home's spectacular spaces is this enclosed courtyard that features a koi pond naturally lit by a large skylight overhead.

The main residence features vaulted ceilings and rustic accents in keeping with the ranch's roots. An antler chandelier lights this hallway and there's a animal hide rug underfoot.

Rustic Living Room With Vaulted Ceiling

A vaulted ceiling and French doors that open to the home's outdoor spaces make this living room feel so light and airy. A large natural fiber rug grounds the interior.
