The farm consists of a beautiful 21Ha on the Northern slopes of the Magalies mountain. Rich in Boer history from the 1800’s. The farm houses the Hartebeestfontein Boer School building dated 1897 (fully restored) with lots of history and nostalgia. The farm is situated on the old Paul Kruger Wagon Trail running over Silkaatsnek westward along the Magalies Mountains towards Rustenburg. History has it that a number of prominent names like President Paul Kruger, Generals de Wet, de La Rey, Maritz and numerous other Boer Commandos used the area and School Building for gatherings and their meetings during the war. A desktop study was done by University of Pretoria that confirms a lot of wonderful historical events happening on the farm before, during and after the Anglo-Boer-War. There is a very old Wild Fig tree in front of the old school where the Boers held Church on Sundays and it is believed that up to 80 wagons gathered in the area for Sunday Church. The availability of water that spontaneously seeps from the ground enabled trekkers to water their animals here and ultimately lead to the development of a trading post, Church meetings and the building of the Hartebeestfontein School. The area is filled with relics and a Historical Hotspot.
Access to the farm is via a well maintained gravel road from the R511 (between the Silkaatsnek Sasol Garage and the PV3 Grounds. The farm borders the R511 on its northern border. The main section of the farm where the houses and buildings are, is situated on the southern side of the farm towards the mountain.
