Acting as a transition zone between the estate and the surrounding countryside, these large properties fan out from the promenade along the slopes down towards the stream.
They allow for substantial homes many of which resemble the cluster homesteads of the Cape and midlands of KwaZulu-Natal.
The original farmhouse of Mr Otto on the farm Upper Saxony in the shadows of Otto’s Bluff incorporated a florid gable.
Initially most of the houses were barn like structures which often led to a collection (fragmentation) of buildings forming the courtyard. These vary in size from 5000m² to well over a hectare.
