Description

"Double storey building with tiled roof, two covered gables facing Dorp Str, a turret on the corner and a covered gable on Stadler Str, the gables nearest to the corner having plaster decorations. Quoins at corners and dividing facade into bays. 2x2 flat-arched sashes and casements with fanlights (replacing French doors?) to upper floor, all with plastered surrounds. Ground floor has flat-arched openings, including glazed doors and shopfronts on Dorp Str and windows with arched fanlights on Stadler Str. The ground floor of the 5 bays to the right on Dorp Str preserve the pattern of openings of a Cape building, with Georgian woodwork- a 4x4 door with sunrise fanlight and 12x12 sashes. A further sash and arched opening may be remnants of a Georgian extension. Uncovered stoop- there was probably a double storey verandah from the 1905 conversion, now removed."  

History

"Rev JH Neethling was born here in 1826, the same year his farther built the original house, on a portion of the farm Weidenhof. Parts of the old house are preserved in Oude Rozenhof. The 1905 building was intended to be a hotel, but was not granted." 

Alterations

Removal of verandah and conversion of upper doors to windows; merits restoration.
