This little flat roofed Cape Georgian style cottage with its moulded parapet, was the preferred style of the Muslim artisans of the time.
It is reminiscent of the typical BO-KAAP (Upper Cape Town) houses as they still exist to-day. The vertical panelled frontdoor with fanlight replaced the stable door of the Cape Dutch style. Typically this fanlight is also the only window of the Voorhuis(front room).
The attractive net curtains on the small Victorian sash window in front of the house, was painted by the well known Swellendam artist,
Jan du Toit.
Property Facilities:
There is an open hearth in the living room/kitchen with plenty of wood provided.
