Welgelegen was built among the trees in the grounds of Groote Schuur as a gift from Rhodes to a family who had been kind to him in Kimberley when he was young, the Curreys. (Greig. 1970:61-62)

It is now owned by the University of Cape Town and houses the university's Communication and Marketing Department.
