About The Gables
Number 23 Killarney Road, an old Sandhurst farmhouse, was purchased in 1987. Years of meticulous research went into its reconstruction. Step inside and feel transported to a 17th century Western Cape homestead. Old yellowwood beams and flooring, Batavian floor tiles, traditional brass fittings and metal work were all sourced or commissioned to make the house as authentically Cape Dutch as possible. Now The Gables boasts a range of beautiful venues for hire, a retail space featuring the work of local artists, and our very own in house coffee shop, Hand Brew Cafe.
