Lanzerac Manor

Lanzerac - a national monument beautifully situated in Jonkershoek valley

In 1692 the farm Schoongezicht with 21 Morgan of virgin soil was granted to Isaac Schrijver by Simon van der Stel. The white gabled manor house was built in 1830 by Coenraad Fick. Later owners have added more buildings to this wine farm. Mrs Elisabeth Katharina English purchased the farm in 1914 and renamed it Lanzerac. She restored and developed the outbuildings, enlarged the manor house and turned it into a superb colonial home filled with antiques.
The Rawdon brothers bought the property in 1958 and converted the homestead and outbuildings into a luxury hotel.
In 1990 Lanzerac was bought and beautifully restored by the businessman Christo Wiese.
