A dream come true

The Nel family have been farming Vanrhynshoek since 1925. It has been a family dream to build a house on top of the Hantam Mountains for decades. It is an honour to see this family dream come to life! The house was built over a 9 month period (April 2021 -Dec 2021) by ourselves. Every detail designed and created with much love.
