|Halstead Farm is a double storey `Provence style` farmhouse built just before the turn of the 20th century when the Sundays River valley came into prominence as a citrus growing region.|
Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, author of the South African classic tale `Jock of the Bushveld` pioneered the citrus development in the valley by bringing water, via canal system, to this fertile region. On many occasions he and other of the valley`s early pioneers would use the vantage of the double story balcony to view the expanding agricultural developments of those early years.
While the main house today remains our residence we have opened the guest cottages to visitors. The central position of Halstead has proved to be a useful springboard to explore the valley.
The Sundays River Valley is typical of many farming communities with various farm stalls, polo club, library etc. The "Lookout" burial site of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick has the most wonderful viewing platform built over 50 years ago from where an elevated perspective of the whole expanse of the valley can be gained.
