Built by Johannes Stephanus Joubert (1870-1949) in 1909 on a farm just outside of Heidelberg. He was a building contractor and built the Laer and Hoër Volkskool. He also built the Hostels: Excelsior, Transvalia and Concordia, which have since been demolished.
The property was confiscated by the government in about 1914 and was sold to Senator Francious (Frank) Robertson in 1940. There are streets named after him and his wife Mona in Jordaan Park. His son Reitz Robertson inherited the farm in 1977. He was a Mayor of Heidelberg at one time.
