One of these historical homes recently sold by Pam Golding Properties, was listed at R3.65 million. The cottage was built by the “Father of Greyton”, Herbert Vigne.

Although the home has been completely renovated, the symmetrical fenestration on either side of the central door dates back to before 1938. The three-bedroom cottage is located close to the street in the style that is typical of this area and is surrounded by beautiful gardens that include a front rose garden.

“Occupying a corner plot with stunning mountain views, the home enjoys a prime location on the town’s most historic street,” says Christoff Coetzer, Pam Golding Properties agent for Greyton. Greyton, named after Sir George Grey, then Governor of the Cape, is a portion of the farm that Vigne bought in 1846.

This home has the wooden floors, plastered walls and wood windows that were characteristic of this period. The garden has a koi pond and the property has automatic gates and alarm security.
