?Built in 1869, being one of very few original stone cottages built in Tamboerskloof, is located in historical Military Road erf 69, the latter number depicting it having been the 69th home registered in Cape Town, the oldest city in South Africa. Military Road, at the turn of the nineteenth century was used as an ammunition base by the British Soldiers, thus its name. The home is a classified heritage one and to become so listed it has to have the following qualifications: Be unique, historically important or have architecture worth preserving. It most certainly conforms and abides with all three stipulations.

The name ''Tamboerskloof'' is derived from the Afrikaans words for drum ''tamboer'' and valley ''kloof.'' When the Dutch settlers arrived and set up farms in the 1650s, they established the first of a series of lookout points at the site where Tamboerskloof lies today. From these lookout points, watchmen would beat drums to alert farmers in the area to the approach of a ship. Thanks to this, farmers would know that it was time to make their way

to Cape Town harbour for their crops.


?All inside rooms on ground floor and original part of home, including entrance hall, all have great height ceilings of some 3.5metres, normal design during Victorian period allowing for atmosphere, character and ambience together with brightness and breeziness.

The entrance hall leading into a beneficent lounge/dining room with an original Victorian built-in fireplace together with an eat-in kitchen, as was the norm during this era.

The three bedrooms are of very good size, the two front ones with bay windows also have original Victorian built-in fireplaces. Modernised full bathroom, next to the kitchen, consisting of shower, bathtub, toilet and basin.

New addition to original home was the downstairs very spacious flatlet which has access from the main house via a metal spiral staircase, as well as its very own private entrance leading to an outside alley.

All the foregoing is situated below the original

main house. Outside a very small garden together with a plunge pool.
