The sandstones seen at the Renovatio River Estate venues are over 100 years old as they are part of the original stone farm and farmhouse that was built in 1883.


The Bridal Suite is part of the original farmhouse built in 1883 that was refurbished and renovated in 2011.


The sandstone Chapel has a clear view of the old bridge built in the 1900’s that still spans across the Suikerbos River to this day.


The White Aviary venue was once a farmer’s greenhouse and was used to grow vegetables.


The Century Tree (a popular place for outdoor weddings) was planted in 1883 by the first farmer that lived there. Today 100 years later, the Tree has grown to a very large size where 100+ guests can easily be seated under the shade of the canopy of leaves.


The walls of the Renovatio Buffet Hall (which is part of the Renovatio Banqueting Hall) has been left untouched to showcase how the farmer built the farm in 1883. Hay and clay can be seen in between the sandstone walls as cement had not been invented yet.
