Places To See

The discovery of a small patch of Aristea lugens, a member of the Iridacea family (long thought to be extinct), by Mrs R Linder, Dr W P O Jackson and Prof A Barnard, while walking on the common near the Durbanville racecourse in 1960, led to the National Council of Women's resolution to establish a nature reserve in the area. The Town Council was approached and 4 hectares were made available.

A double-storied Edwardian building dating c1900 with two projection wings and a double-story verandah on two sides. The verandah has fine cast-iron columns and brackets and has recently been restored.

The Anglican Church was established in 1860 and declared a National Monument on 30 July 1982 after being enlarged in the same year. Many articles of historical interest can be found in the church and rectory. The Baptismal font, made from stone from the city of Bath in England, is inscribed with the word "D'Urban". Also of interest is the original church bell that used to be a ship's bell dating from 1812. Visitors are always welcome.

This is possibly the best remaining Edwardian gentlmans residence in the Northern Suburbs and has been subjected to restoration of high quality by Dr Kings Court Durbanvilleand Mrs Smook and was declared a National Monument on 12 May 1989. The first owner was Mr King, the following Andrew Murray.
