#jacaranda at De Goede Hoop

I love the house’s new ‘livery’! I researched woodwork colours for Cape Dutch houses and discovered that brick red and very dark blue were used, as well as the ubiquitous green (that I don’t like). #capedutch at De Goede Hoop

Former presidential residence Groote Schuur today. Rammed to the rafters with priceless furniture, but facing an uncertain future, either as an uncomfortable, boarding school-like official guesthouse, or a cohesively laid out museum. Fingers crossed for the latter. #grooteschuur at Cape Town, Western Cape

A bit of #hawksmoorhouse history: here is the deed of the farm, written in 1692 by the Company scribe de Grevenbroek, signed by Van der Stel. In 1704 the cartographer Kolbe draw a set of four maps that when viewed together represented the nascent colony at the Cape. He marked the farm as ‘Ds van Loon’s land’ as Dominee Hercules van Loon was the owner at the time. #capedutch at Hawksmoor House
