Stellenberg Estate Garden – Open to the Public on 9th and 10th  November 2019

The Stellenberg Estate reflects historic periods of the past 300 years. This unique opportunity allows the public to stroll through and experience these breathtaking gardens. Sandy and Andrew Ovenstone’s beautiful four-acre garden is internationally acclaimed, having been featured on the BBC television series ‘Around the World in 80 Gardens’. The 18th Century manor house is said to be one of the most beautiful in the Cape Peninsula.

A special focus this year on The Walled Garden:

English designer David Hicks designed a formal garden, based on the classic idea of a Walled Garden, to celebrate the 25th wedding anniversary of Andrew and Sandy Ovenstone in 1989. Thirty years on, this iconic garden room at Stellenberg continues to honour the legacy and style of David Hicks while constantly evolving, as the garden and it surrounds matures and changes. Enclosed by a whitewashed wall, covered in heritage climbing roses, the garden is divided into two by a simple brick pathway. An asymmetrical layout of knee height clipped hedges gives the garden its architectural structure, but which allows for seasonal changes in planting style and the colours used. It is a celebration of a marriage, a celebration of good garden design and is the heart of the garden at Stellenberg.
