Kleinbosch Farm
Dal Josaphat, Western Cape

Date:1792
Type:Farmhouse
Style:Cape Dutch
Status:Extant

Kleinbosch, built in 1792 by Guillaume du Toit, on land granted to his grandfather, Francois, one hundred years before. The holbol gable has delicate mouldings and an unusual feature of the house is the extension of the central bar of the H-plan so as to include stabling within the main structure, separated from the other outbuildings of the werf, which are also very interesting.
