The land was granted to Jan de Waal in 1752 and presumably the house was built upon it soon thereafter. It was remodelled by the addition of fine Georgian architectural features early in the 19th century, after the second British annexation of the Cape in 1806. It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 24 June 1983.
