The Cape Cadogan is a stately double-storeyed Georgian and Victorian building that dates back to the beginning of the 19th century. It was originally a single story Georgian farmhouse which was ‘Victorianised’ in the later part of the century. A second floor was added by the owner, Mr Heinrich Becker, in 1912 using Ernst Seelinger – a renowned architect and builder of this era.
The granite garden wall still contains the original iron work from the old quarry at the top of Kloof Street, and was a wedding gift to Mr Becker. Suite 3 used to be the old wagon shed and stable, the entrance of which opened into King Street. The building was awarded national monument status in late 1984.
