The original old farmhouse at Stanford Hills is steeped in history. It is believed to have been built by Philippus de Bruyn, the founder of the village Stanford, shortly after he obtained the farm in 1855.During the 1890’s the house became a school for girls, under the leadership of Mrs Christina Morton. It has since changed hands a number of times, until 2005 when it was purchased by the present owners.
