Our graceful single story gabled Cape Dutch Manor House was built in 1809. The architectural features reflect the construction flair which was typical at that time. As the French born architect Louis Michel Thibault who had designed numerous beautiful buildings in the Cape, influenced the layout of several highly prized manor houses in and around the wine lands.
Restoration of the Manor House’s interior and exterior was undertaken in 1995 when Camellia Plc bought the property. The house was refurnished with charming antique pieces of both Cape and English origin. Various wardrobes, chests, four poster beds, musical instruments, house hold items and the single largest collection of coal-heated clothing irons in South Africa are held along with collectables from the property’s three-hundred-year history.
