Architecture; The original Cape Dutch

Cape Dutch architecture is very much identified with the rounded gables as one sees on pictures of wine estates in the Western Cape. But the original Cape Dutch homesteads in this part of South Africa did not have these gables but they had nicely rounded roofs. Local architect Maureen Wolters designed an original for friends of us but with all modern comfort. This new farm house is in its finishing building stages and is not only locally build but also the building materials were, as much as possible, locally sourced.
