The Manor House has been tastefully co-ordinated with fashionable furnishings by the dynamic design team from Visser Kapperer de Bruin Architects of Stellenbosch who were also the restoration architects. The end result bears testimony to a conscious endeavour to forsake grandeur in favour of unaffected sincerity with a flair that underlies classical refinement. Fashionable and co-ordinated with flair, the Manor House's interior features an elegant and eclectic rendition of old and new. The selection of furniture in the Cape Art Nouveau and Art deco, ball-and-claw and retro styles are reminiscent of our estate's diverse cultural heritage and progressive approach to winemaking. Fashionable furnishings make an unaffected, yet classically refined, statement. Trappings of the past are brought closer to the present in the dining room or 'galderij' with its traditional wall cupboard ('muurkas') and yellowwood ceiling beams. A long dining table comfortably seats 36 guests, and with a slight change in configuration can seat up to 40 guests.
