Walloon Farm is owned by a well traveled family who appreciate its historical value and who have painstakingly renovated this home to bring back an ambiance and atmosphere of a by-gone era of the Cape. This home is a real treasure to be absorbed by those with a desire to share in the finer things of life – in the present – but with the style and grandeur, reminiscent of 150 years ago. Located in Constantia, known for famous wines, scenic drives, farm stalls and only 15 minutes from the city center.
Welcome Note Walloon Farm was designed to Welcome you as guests, to leave as friends and to return as family. You will receive the personal attention of Walloon Farm's Butler, Victor. I hope you feel the warm hospitality that has been carefully prepared for you.
In 1917, Magistrate Mr. Rousseau sold the farm to Mr. Douglas Schuddinh, who in 1920 created the front door with the original doors from the Cape of Good Hope Savings Bank building. This historic entrance engulfs you into a home that is adorned with magnificent yellow wood beam roof and floors. A long and wide corridor leads you to the four suites and enclosed courtyard. Suites
