'... one of several in the country which De Witt designed for Lennon, ... a heavy solid-looking building, almost too heavy and detailed for its rural setting. .... illustrates clearly how architects who have designed only a few buildings for a particular town may yet give it a definitive character, even if the impression of these buildings in the midst of the rural folk architecture is sometimes overwhelming' (Rode et al 1987:179).

The building was converted into a retirement centre and the name changed to 'Huis Vergenoegd' [House Contented]
