About the Manor House

The stalwart of Stanford Hills, this original farmhouse is beautifully renovated and ideal for two families or larger groups.


Steeped in history, the Manor House is believed to have been built by Philippus de Bruyn – the founder of the town of Stanford around 1855. During the 1890s the house became a school for girls under the leadership of Mrs Christina Morton. It has since changed hands numerous times up until 2005 when it was purchased by the Kastner family.


The farmhouse sleeps eleven in total, has a wonderful outside area with barbeque facilities and a private swimming pool, as well as a private patio with incredible views.


The East wing comprises two bedrooms and one bathroom; offering a queen-size bed and small balcony upstairs, with a twin room and full bathroom downstairs.


The West wing also has two bedrooms, one en-suite with a queen-size bed and its’ own access onto the front stoep, and the other with a single- and bunk bed.


The large lounge area hosts a fireplace, fully-stocked bookshelf, outside access, and divides the two living areas of the main house.


The large, welcoming farmhouse kitchen and interleading dining area are fully equipped and open onto the outside seating area; ideal for big family dinners and entertaining guests.
