Transformation of the Patio

May 17, 2016

One of the enhancements we have all agreed needs to happen is to have the ability to serve dinner in the evenings for guests staying with us.

So with us deciding to start this when we relaunch, on 1st September, we all felt that the patio or stoep (Afrikaans word) would be the best venue, being spacious and enjoying great views of the estate.


Open stoeps in the Western Cape can be idyllic one moment and either a wind tunnel or freezing cold the next, so we have come to the conclusion that frameless folding glass doors are the way forward. This will allow us to always have a view outwards, no matter the weather and conditions outside.


The first steps are underway, we have removed the existing brick paving, dropped and compacted the foundation, before rebuilding it up to the right height for the new tiled floor that will be an extension to the tiles we have in the main areas.
