The Drakenstein municipality says the South African Heritage Resource Agency, SAHRA, will have to…

The Drakenstein municipality says the South African Heritage Resource Agency, SAHRA, will have to investigate whether the historic Non Pareille farmhouse that burnt down outside Paarl two weeks ago, is beyond restoration. The farm which dates back to the late 17th century, belongs to the state and forms part of the Dal Josafat Colonial Cultural landscape. The farmhouse was previously known as the artist residency. SAHRA declared it a a heritage resource in 2009. Municipal spokesperson Riana Geldenhuys says the municipality recommends that a structural engineer inspects and compiles a report on the structural integrity of the farmhouse.”The roof structure and covering were completely destroyed in last month’s fire and the gables are unsupported and appear to be unstable. The municipality earlier recommended that the building be cordoned off by a fence, boarding or barricade to prevent unauthorised persons from entering the damaged building. Its great loss to the estate and the cultural history of Drakenstein.”
