FARM LIVING EXPERIENCE IN KRUGERSDORP – FARMHOUSE 58
December 21, 2021
Sometimes an escape from the busy city buzz to nature, quietness, fresh breeze, and the sounds of birds in the morning is just around the corner. Don’t get me wrong, I love the city lifestyle and I am a city guy too however, sometimes I just need a quiet place where I can relax, recharge, connect with nature, and reconnect with my inner soul and FARMHOUSE 58 offered me all that and more.
We had the pleasure of spending two nights at FARMHOUSE 58. FARMHOUSE 58 situated in the heart of Cradle of Humankind in Krugersdorp, is an old dairy farm that has been converted into 21 Japanese Wabi-sabi inspired rooms offering accommodation to create consciously aligned mixed-use, multi-dimensional spaces that are foundational components of the greater 58 and NIROX ecosystem.
It’s a place of serenity, comfort, and harmony ideal for nature lovers who just want to relax, connect with nature, and reconnect with their inner souls.
The overall décor and feel of the property show that FARMHOUSE 58 is grounded in nature by drawing inspiration from multiple diverse disciplines such as Japanese Wabi-sabi inspired décor and Ancient African settlements.
When we arrived at the farm, I made a mistake by driving up the hill through the farmlands until we reached the property. I missed the part on our welcome pack that explains that all cars must be parked at NIROX gate 3 and guests to utilise the inhouse shuttle to go up to FARMHOUSE 58.
FARMHOUSE 58 is an integral part of Project58, an ambitious multi-faceted program to create a unique place for connection in nature hence they maintain their strict policy for eco-friendly living and no petrol cars on the property to ensure that the land, plants, and environment are protected.
Project58 is still under construction but this will not affect your stay or overall experience at FARMHOUSE 58 because rooms, gardens, and the restaurant are complete.
Expect to see the plants and trees being planted by farmworkers recruited from local communities, vegetable gardens, and farmlands unfold, and the construction of the new restaurant, greenhouse, the sheds, chicken coop, and fitness centre across the property.
Seeing everything unfold in front of my eyes and imagining what the complete project will look like, was just a special moment to experience and I can’t wait for my return. So go out there, explore your own province, be a tourist in your own city, create memories, and share your experiences with the entire world.
