We bought this old structure in a town called Hopefield, 1 hour 15 minutes from Cape Town situated between Malmesbury and Paternoster. The building was part of one of the original erven assigned by the church before an official municipality was established after 1910. The erf and building we bought was part of a subdivision project but was never registered, had no services, over R 24 000 in outstanding rates and taxes and so our journey began – bringing the old structure back to life and turning this into our escape outside Cape Town.
