Final rest­ing place

Home (South Africa) - - FRESH IDEAS FINAL RESTING PLACE -

In the 1950s, long be­fore up­cy­cling was a buzz word, the late Philip My­burgh of Joost­en­berg wine farm out­side Stel­len­bosch in­stalled a “re­tired” sow­ing wheel in the stoep wall of his his­toric manor house. Al­most seven decades and two gen­er­a­tions later it still en­sures that the stoep stays light and airy, and re­minds the cur­rent res­i­dents, Nicky and Philip (the late Philip’s grand­son), of the farm’s his­tory and the in­ven­tive­ness of their an­ces­tors. Says Nicky, “I love my stoep’s unas­sum­ing charm and the fact that our back door to this area stays open all day.”
