Old House

the history

In the early 1930’s local attorney Danny van Ryneveldt built the original gabled house on a large small holding for his wife called Pixie.  The original imported wooden floors and pressed ceilings are to be seen in the breakfast room and throughout the main house.  Only two families have owned this house after it was built by the Van Ryneveldt’s. At the time it was a smaller farm style homestead, complete with cows and water irrigation canals.

 

The Styger Family acquired the property in 1989.  During renovations these irrigation canals were exposed and various artefacts were found. Extensive renovations and redevelopment were added on to the original home.  Johan was instrumental in the layout of the initial and enlarged family home.  The veranda added on the western façade became characteristic in all future extensions.
