My wife and I bought the property three years ago. We immediately saw the reason why the property was well priced. The view was amazing over the ocean and adjacent farm but totally unutilized. The living and kitchen areas consisted of five different, enclosed rooms (“duiwehokkies”). The ocean could only be seen from the living room.

We knocked down most of the inner rooms, supporting the structures with I-beams and installed aluminium windows. We also kept all the open roof trusses, only painting it white for a more open, double volume feeling.
