Rustic Karoo Farmstead

Tankwa Karoo National Park is a Scientific National Park in South Africa. On Blaauwheuvel, a farm 70km from Sutherland near the Tankwa Karoo National Park, property developer, project manager and nature enthusiast Peter van Wyk has created his personal piece of paradise.
Originally built around 1860, the home itself was a typical thatched Karoo farmstead that Peter politely describes as ‘a little rustic’. It stood next to a derelict old school. By connecting the two buildings, Peter was able to turn a two-bedroom mishmash of spaces into a four-bedroom, symmetrical home that is sensitive to the original style of the property. An old outbuilding became a separate cottage, adding a fifth bedroom to the mix.
