The house was built in 1778 as a residence for the Dutch East India Company’s Cape fiscal, Willem Cornelis Boers.
The William Fehr Collection of pictorial Africana – comprised of water colours, etchings and lithographs – reflects past moments of social and maritime history at the Cape as well as across Southern Africa. The rococo fanlight, which forms an integral part of the main entrance, has been ascribed to sculptor Anton Anreith. The house is surrounded by a period-style garden.
