Accommodation with historic values
This lovely old house set in the heart of Rondebosch in the shadow of Table Mountain and Devil's Peak, opposite the Rondebosch Market (where regular Craft Markets are held), was built in 1882. It was built according to the Arts and Crafts style of architecture which was just beginning to find favour in Victorian England and its Colonies.
Although the A&C philosophy focused on "revolution through art," its principles were formed by a set a great overarching values, as relevant today as they were then:
find joy in work
stay connected to nature
maintain integrity of 'place'
Roodenburg House, today, in its recent renovation of 2010 strives to abide by the same values, with much of the interior design and landscaping reflecting that period and its principles.
Roodenburg was its original name, and was named after the original allotment at this site to one of Jan van Riebeek's "free Burghers". It is in the Liesbeek area, and Roodenburg Estate, later Myrtle Grove, lay between College and Rouwkoop Roads. On some maps the old estate is shown extending across the river to the main road where Liesbeek House used to be, though this area is more naturally a part of Groote Schuur.
