[see Map 2] is a prestigious flat complex, bounded by Duke, Queen and Gatley roads with the Diocesan College Preparatory School on its eastern boundary. Set in an attractive garden with mature trees, some of a great age, it is screened from public view and traffic noise. Originally it formed part of the parent farm, , whose basic 20 morgen was granted in 1657 to Jacob Cloete and was the first land grant made to a private individual in Van Riebeeck's settlement at the Cape.

Hendrik, a descendant of Jacob's, was the last active farmer of this land.
