Piketberg in the Western Cape is located at the foothills of Piketberg Mountains and was once an ideal site to set up residence for the Khoikhoi and San tribes that roamed the plains and grasslands many centuries ago.
The town of Piketberg was established when the Dutch settlers started exploring the region for suitable agricultural land and in 1836 on the farm Grotefontein.
The region is known for the wheat that is produced along with some livestock. Being in the Swartland region there is also wine farming which is along with wheat the primary source of economic viability to the region. The soil is fertile and produces good stable crops year on year.
Piketberg today is a sought after town as a residential address due to many strong positive factors.
The town has such an idyllic setting of country living, low crime rates, almost no pollution, fresh food and the fact that it is a tourist destination makes for a diverse property usage.
The town is well established with a quaint mixture of heartwarming old world charm with the Cape Dutch and Neo-Gothic architecture and the more conventional and modern newer homes.
Due to the more remote location of the village/town, the property prices are not that high yet very stable. Property values are to some extent driven by the prices farms fetch on the open market.
The town has schools which serve the community. These include Piketberg High School, Brandenburg Primary School, Karookop Primary School and Steynville Secondary School.
There are also some tourist attractions in close proximity to Piketberg, including the Swartland Wine Estate and Bergrivier hikes and camping for the more adventurous visitors.
