About San Gabriel

We are just off the R44 road, connecting Somerset West to Stellenbosch and we are blessed with a magnificent setting. Backed by the incomparable Helderberg, it looks westwards across sweeping vineyards towards the distant curve of False Bay.

The original grant of only two morgen was made to Paul Hartog Junior in 1759, three years after he had built the homestead. Fortunately his gable still remains, although San Gabriel has undergone a variety of alterations and additions within the past century. The gable is of the simplest holbol type and bears, within a large heart in bas-relief, the date 1756, making it the same age as that of Joostenberg and therefore one of the two oldest gables still in existence at the Cape. The original curved decorative motif was at some time replaced by one depicting vine leaves and grapes.

Hartog's Klipheuvel (as it was then called) was built on the T-plan but its original shape has disappeared with the addition of two back wings. Yet despite all the changes that it has undergone, San Gabriel, surrounded by old oaks and an exquisite garden, remains a most beautiful homestead.
