Register Now November 9 16 2015 Known for its magnificent scenery the Cape of Good Hope region will open its doors to a hidden world of magnificent art architecture and gardens From the thatched and gabled manor houses of the 17th century Dutch settlers and the influence of the Dutch East India Company to the mansions of the Rand Lords this tour will encompass 250 years of colonial architecture The group will stay five nights at the world famous Mount Nelson Hotel set below the backdrop of Table Mountain along with two nights at the renowned Lanzerac hotel spa in Stellenbosch We will visit

HOPE Built in c 1665 as a star fortress and the headquarters of the Dutch East India Company this the oldest surviving colonial building houses a collection of national treasures paintings furniture glass silver and porcelain MICHAELIS COLLECTION Donated in 1914 by Sir Max Michaelis this world class collection of mostly Netherlands art contains masterpieces by Frans Hals Jan Steen Van Dyke and Jacob van Ruisdael KOOPMANS DE WET HOUSE This house museum is furnished as a home for a well to do Cape family during the late 18th Century It houses some of the best pieces of Cape furniture and silver in the country in addition to a priceless collection of ceramics A household such as this would only have been able to function with its share of servants and slaves and recent research has brought to light the names and professions of some who lived in the house at the time as well as the kinds of activities they would have pursued GROOT SCHUUR The former Cape Town residence of the state president the gabled Groote Schuur Big Barn was originally built in 1667 to serve as the VOC s granary before it was bought by Cecil John Rhodes in 1893 and converted into a grand mansion and office by his chum Architect Sir Herbert Baker Along with the building Rhodes bought several other properties on Table Mountain s eastern slopes during the late 19th century including the summer house of Rudyard Kipling the Woolsack and Mostert s Mill On the slopes above the University of Cape Town campus you can still see the ruins of the lion enclosure known as the Groote Schuur Zoo which replaced the original cage like structure commissioned by Rhodes in 1897 Rhodes died in 1910 and bequeathed his estate to the nation an elaborate neoclassical shrine was erected in his memory two years later RHODES MEMORIAL The memorial which was designed by Sir Herbert Baker was built in 1912 to honour former Cape Colony prime minister and mining magnate Cecil John Rhodes The position chosen was Rhodes favourite viewing site The memorial was built in recognition of Rhodes contribution to Cape Town and the colony The funders spared no cost in ensuring that it was an appropriate tribute to his contribution to South Africa Built from Cape granite quarried on Table Mountain the memorial consists of 49 steps one for each year of Rhodes s life The Doric columns were inspired by Rhodes s appreciation of classical architecture and the eight lions were modelled on those at the base of Nelson s Column in Trafalgar Square London IRMA STERN MUSEUM Irma Stern 1894 1966 was a major South African artist who achieved national and international recognition in her lifetime The permanent collection on display shows Irma Stern s development as an artist whose subject matter included exotic figures portraits lush landscapes and still lifes conveyed in a variety of media ranging from oils and water colors to gouache and charcoal The Irma Stern Museum was established in 1971 and is the house the artist lived in for almost four decades Several of the rooms are furnished as she arranged them while upstairs there is a commercial gallery used by contemporary South African artists GROOT CONSTANTIA In 1685 during an annual visit to the Cape Hendrik Adriaan van Rheede tot Drakenstein granted the grounds of Groot Constantia to Simon van der Stel the VOC Governor of the Cape of Good Hope Van der Stel built the house and used the land to produce wine as well as other fruit and vegetables and for cattle farming Following Van der Stel s death in 1712 the estate was broken up and sold in three parts Groot Constantia Klein Constantia and Bergvliet In 1779 the portion of the estate including Van der Stel s Cape Dutch style manor house was sold to the Cloete family who planted extensive vineyards and extended and improved the mansion by commissioning the architect Louis Michel Thibault The wine cellar was added by Cloete in 1791 The house remained in the possession of the Cloete family until 1885 during which period the estate became famous for its production of Constantia dessert wine In 1885 Groot Constantia was purchased by the government of the Cape of Good Hope and was used as an experimental wine and agricultural estate In 1969 the manor house became part of the South African Cultural History Museum and in 1993 the estate passed into the ownership of the Groot Constantia Trust The exhibition in the house is managed by Iziko South African Museum and is particularly focused on rural slavery and the life of slaves during the early Cape colonial period RUST EN VREDE In Rhodes last years he went to live in his tiny cottage by the sea at Muizenberg away from the cold and damp of Groote Schuur Just above his cottage Rhodes planned with Herbert Baker a house on a great high terrace wall designed so that from the house and stoop the public road would be hidden and there would be seen through white columns the fullest sweep of the blue sea and rhythm of white surf and the two far off mountain promontories which shelter the entrance to False Bay This dream was never to be fulfilled as Rhodes had an even more burning desire that he might save sufficient monies to endow scholarships at Oxford the Rhodes Scholarships So the house was left unfinished However Sir Abe Bailey completed Rust en Vrede from the foundations upwards building it according to the original plan commissioned by Rhodes Baker s watercolor perspective drawing shows the house roughly as it was built white with tall gables and twisting chimneys against the soft red ochre of the roof all grouped above arcaded loggias It was the prototype of houses Baker was yet to build in other parts of Africa The interior is a mixture of styles with Lutyensesque countrified beamed ceilings contrasting with a sophisticated and almost Art Deco green marble drawing room HAWTHORNDENE The Hawthorndene Homestead was built by Captain John Spence who owned this part of the original Oude Wijnberg Estate from 1881 until 1888 It was built in the Renaissance manner comprising of more than thirty rooms This restrained Victorian design includes bay windows a turret cast iron balconies and a French type mansard roof Mining magnate J B Robinson bought Hawthornden in 1891 He left to live in London before returning in 1917 settling in Wynberg with his wife Elizabeth Furgeson Their daughter Ida married Count Labia who later became Prince Labia Their descendants still occupy this stately home FRESH WOODS Fresh Woods is the private garden of Peter and Barbara Knox Shaw It contains a remarkable rose collection of both species and old and new hybrids many raised from seed from the wild or cuttings of wild collected species Begun in the 1950 s roses are planted informally They cover old apple trees climb along fences and are mixed with other shrubs and herbaceous perennials This garden is particularly valuable for the conservation of old roses from the Cape and for preserving collections of wild roses Although a private garden it is open regularly It is known throughout the world and is a source of propagation material and a center for the exchange of rare and valuable varieties KIRSTENBOSCH Kirstenbosch is the name of a famous botanical garden nestled at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town The garden is one of nine National Botanical Gardens covering five of South Africa s six different biomes The most beautiful garden in Africa Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world BABYLONSTOREN Babylonstoren is one of the best preserved werfs farm yards in the Cape Dutch tradition Not only the manor house from 1777 but pioneer structures all the way back to the founding of the farm in 1690 The Koornhuis for storing wheat and hay and the old cellar are exceptionally fine An ornate fowl house pigeon loft leaning bell tower and historic gates embellish a traditional courtyard surrounded by a low whitewashed wall The Babylonstoren garden is at the heart of the farm It was inspired by the Company Gardens of the Cape where for centuries ships would replenish with sweet water vegetables and fruit at the halfway station between Europe and Asia It also hails back to the mythical garden of Babylon Spanning eight acres the Babylonstoren garden is formal in structure Every one of over 300 varieties of plants in the garden is edible The garden is divided into fifteen clusters spanning vegetable areas berries bees indigenous plants ducks and chickens and includes a prickly pear maze Gravity feeds water into waterways from a stream into the garden as it was done for 300 years Following the bell tower axis the old cellar axis or the Babylonstoren hill axis walks span over three kilometers in the garden During spring 7 000 clivias bloom down by the stream where a secluded path runs in the shade of wild olives and oaks MORGENSTER For 300 years Morgenster has attracted and inspired people through its blend of beautiful surroundings excellent terroir and a manor house recognized as one of the great houses of the Western Cape It is refreshing to look back on the people and periods of history that created this marvelous place and to appreciate their contribution RUSTENBERG The garden is situated next to the Cape Dutch homestead Schoongezicht which dates back to 1814 In 2001 Rozanne Barlow wife of the current owner of the Rustenberg Estate undertook to regenerate and restore the garden Walls were constructed and the site where the old tennis court stood has been transformed into an eleven circuit Chartres style labrynth laid out in half brick and river stone The twenty five meter long swimming pool was converted into a lily pond and is now home to many Koi fish The charming pergola originally built by John X Merriman supports climbing roses clematis and other fragrant climbers The garden is essentially laid out in a formal style with four distinct areas accessed by pathways the hard landscaping has pulled the sizeable site of one hectare comfortably together The planting can be described as English with roses foxgloves salvias agapanthus sedum anemones day lilies and much more really a plants lover s dream The changing of the seasons bring interesting and beautiful changes there is always something to catch the eye The borrowed surrounding landscape of vineyards green pastures and the majestic Simonsberg mountain backdrop make a magical place STELLENBERG In upper Kenilworth stands the beautiful Stellenberg a Cape Dutch property dating back to original Van Der Stel ownership Fortunately it has been blessed with sensible and caring owners starting with the Felthams who required Stellenberg in 1878 who did not succumb to the fashion of the times by removing gables replacing thatch with corrugated iron or to tamper with the Cape Dutch windows and shutters Finally the Ovenstones acquired Stellenberg in the 1950 s and today nearly 60 years later Stellenberg remains one of the most beautiful Cape Dutch houses in the Cape Peninsula The garden as it is now commenced in 1987 with the Herb Garden Graham Viney and Gary Searle were inspirational in the planning and planting of this garden as in other areas of the garden too In 1989 the Walled Garden designed by David Hicks was begun The Rose Garden which was executed in 1989 has been removed and a new parterre has been designed in its place 2001 by Franchesca Watson The feel that the link between house and this new garden relates better to the house and provides a better balance to the rest of the garden New ideas and inspiration have taken place from year to year and planting schemes have changed reflecting old and looking towards the contemporary and the future of gardening VERGELEGEN When Willem Adriaan succeeded his father Simon van der Stel as governor of the Cape in 1700 it didn t take long before he claimed a modest 30 000 hector piece of land for himself just as his father had done in his time at Constantia It took three days by oxwagon to reach Willem Adriaan s farm on the slopes of the Hottentots Holland mountain range overlooking the Atlantic Ocean hence its name Vergelegen meaning situated faraway Six years after he started planting vines Willem Adriaan had half a million vine stocks He laid out fruit orchards and orange groves planted camphor and oak trees and established eighteen cattle stations with 1000 cattle and 1800 sheep Willem Adriaan also built reservoirs and dug irrigation canals He built himself a beautiful Cape Dutch homestead added a corn mill and many other subsidiary buildings When in November 1705 reverent Francois Valentijn visited Vergelegen he uttered the now well known words I saw this Estate with exceptional pleasure since everything was laid out wonderfully finely The younger van der Stel was a man of divergent interests but his enthusiasm to turn this barren land into an agricultural paradise got the better of him and after only six years in office Willem Adriaan was found guilty of corrupt practices and was ordered to return to the Netherlands in October 1706 Nevertheless Willem Adriaan was considered a genius for his knowledge of farming and his visionary mind contributed greatly to the agricultural development of the Cape Visits to Ida s Valley a private Cape Dutch farmstead owned by the Erskine family and La Garonne an 18th century house garden privately owned by the Rupert family and beautifully situated below the mountains in the Franschhoen Valley To Reserve a space Please

Charleston October 1 4 2015 Tour Arranged by Classical Excursions THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT The name Charleston rings a silver bell when it comes to elegant classical architecture at its best a magnificent spectacle of pastel stucco columned piazzas and ironwork balconies beautifully restored by talented architects and preservationists and many enchantingly decorated by equally talented interior designers A lifestyle of charm grace and hospitality developed when Charleston became a leading port of the 18th and early 19th centuries a way of life that continues to this day One would like to think that the architecture has something to do with this or perhaps the lifestyle set the standard for the architecture In either case Charleston is like no other city Charlestonians learned early on about the advantages of preserving its beguiling antebellum surroundings What was preserved later on was under bombardment in April 1861 when Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor was fired upon The city suffered enormously both during and after the Civil War It wasn t until well into the 20th century when economically flattened Charleston discovered the potential of it historic homes there are some 3 000 still standing and public buildings never razed in the name of unrealized progress The city became by law in 1931 the country s earliest advocate of historic preservation that saved whole sections thereby recognizing the aesthetic and economic value of its architectural legacy Gatewood House a magnificent 1843 Greek Revival residence that New York architect Gil Schafer has sensitively restored and modernized Here the owners will host Sunday brunch Roper House owned by America s leading collector of classical houses Richard Jenrette The rooms are gorgeously furnished

Africa India and the United States Beginning at the age of nineteen with little formal education or architectural training his career lasted more than half a century from the time of Queen Victoria to World War II Sir Robert Lorimer 1846 1929 began his architectural career in the office of Scottish Revivalist architect Robert Rowand Anderson and in 1893 formed his own practice By this time Lorimer had developed an enthusiasm for the Arts and Crafts Movement becoming committed to the unity of art and nature in architecture and delighting in materials and the richness of textiles and color With the decline in popularity of the Arts and Crafts Movement around 1900 Lorimer turned his attention to several large scale country house commissions mainly designed in the Scots Baronial style The outbreak of World War I restricted the demand for large new houses and his attention shifted to restoration projects an area of expertise for which he had gained a reputation and to significant public works SELECTED TOUR HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE Houses by Sir Edwin Lutyens Overstrand Hall The Pleasance Gledstone Hall Heathcote Sion Hill Lindisfarne Castle Whalton Manor Grey Walls Houses Designed or
