Town planning mix-up

The area that is now called Panorama was awarded to a Mr Booysen and was later transferred to Mr C Meyboom who called the area De Grendel. The land changed hands several times until being bought by Sir David Graaff who farmed dairy cattle. On his death in 1931, the farm passed to his son De Villiers (See story here) who farmed it under a company name “ Graaff’s Trust” Part of the farm was sold for residential development in 1956. The part on the hill called Panorama (View) and the flatter piece Plattekloof (Flat valley) Unfortunately, the town planners erred and confused the two so the area on the hillside is named Plattekloof, and the area on the flat valley is called Panorama. The remainder of the farm De Grendel is planted with grapevines. De Villiers died in 1999 and his son David took over.
