Step into a bygone era, a wonderland where time stands still. Current owners, Sue and Bernard, bought this expansive Stellenbosch property almost two decades ago, and with the help of architect Gerrit van der Wolf, transformed it into a fun and exciting land to be explored by child and adult alike.
The elegant Sir Herbert Baker style house is reminiscent of an era when life was slower, lunches were languid and everyone played croquet!
Apart from the work on the main house, Gerrit was commissioned with building a glass house, a sort of ‘ode, to Bernard’s love of old fashioned conservatories.’
True to the whimsical feeling of this location, a huge, ancient oak, bursts through the top of the glass roof,as though the ‘Alice’ of this story.
Beautiful, rolling, manicured lawns roll up to the buildings- and lead to pathways surrounded by foliage and interspersed with beautiful Alice in Wonderland characters, fashioned by Streetwise. Follow the paths and you end up on the wooden decking overlooking an eco dam. The Manor House at is surrounded by lavender fields and rose gardens. Tree walks and a kiddies zipline add further delight to this magnificent property.A most beautiful and magical location for both film and stills shoots.
