Built around 1845 – that’s a hundred and seventy ago – Dagbreek sits in her well-maintained garden in Graaf Street like a favorite great-aunt at a tea party, slightly worn but still beautiful.
After a chequered history since the magnificent old house was rescued from developers by the Villiersdorp Trust back in 1986, Dagbreek – one of the few remaining examples of buildings showing a ‘wolfneus‘ (wolf nose) gable in the country – is now home to the Villiersdorp Tourism offices.
Dagbreek also boasts a fine art gallery where regular exhibitions showcasing the work of the many talented local artists are held and a museum that is a work in progress and is well worth a visit.
Hope to see you there soon…
