This farm complex consists of a Cape Dutch house built in 1769, and a ring wall and outbuildings which were erected towards the mid-19th century. The land originally formed part of the farm Constantia, once owned by Simon van der Stel. It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 25 October 1982.
'The Bergvliet farm house is not readily visible – the owner has over the years developed a series of dense housing complex around the homestead, so it is not at all visible from a public road. If you have a friend in the appropriate place in the complex you can just see the house through the trees'
