Voortrek Street, No 270 - Historic House
Swellendam, Western Cape

Date:1834c
Type:Homestead
Status:Extant
Street:270 Voortrek Street

Adjoining Rothmann House stands a matching house with similar holbol end-gables, of about the same date, and probably also built by Rothmann. Different in its fenestration, with half-windows beside the door, the plan is a mere rectangle. The two houses form an attractive group. There used to be yet another small building nearby, which was Rothmann's wagon workshop. It has since been thatched, with a dormer gable.
