The land was occupied in 1792 and the farm granted in 1795. Previously a single storey H-Plan building (still discernible) enlarged to double storey. Masterfully crafted front door symmetrically flanked by traditional fenestration, being one half-width and two full-width each cottage-pane windows over both storeys with traditional external louvre shutters at ground floor. Internally the 'muurkaste' are from the residence 'Paarl Diamant' (demolished) which predates this building by fifteen years.
