Did You Know? The Cellars-Hohenort

The Cellars-Hohenort
In 1693, The Cellars-Hohenort, then known as Klaasenbosch Farm, was the house of Hendrik ten Damme, Chief Surgeon of the Dutch East India Company. The farmhouse is positioned against the wooded knoll of the eastern slope of Table Mountain. During the 1750's it became part of the flourishing farming and wine producing area. The Cellars was the wine cellar of Klaasenbosch Farm.

After numerous owners, Arnold Spilhaus bought the farm in 1906 and replaced the old thatched farmhouse with the magnificent manor in the German style with square gables, designed by architect Seeliger. It was named Hohenort, meaning "high place" in old German.
