Description

"H-shaped Cape house with thatched roof, neo-classical pedimented front gable with 20x20 sash and holbol end gables. Cape Dutch joinery: stable door with 20-pane fanlight flanked by narrow 12x 15 and 24x30 sash windows with fixed upper sashes. Brick stoep and steps." 

History

"The house stands on part of a farm granted to HJ Potgieter in 1683. The house was probably built by Philip Hartog, who owned the erf from 1753-1787. It appears on the 1817 town map with the sidecourts between the wings of the H covered by barrel vaults. From 1820-1841 it was owned by Christoffel Lodewyk Wyckert, who probably added the gable. Johann Adam Mader, who bought the house in 1846, replaced the original front door with two late-Georgian doors. The facade was restored in 1962. (Fransen & Cook)"
