Stone Houses of Chrissiesmeer

 one the original Stone houses of Chrissiesmeer, with a newer addition 
(note brickwork) and other detail below ...
these are mostly abandoned - at the time I visited I was unable to ascertain 
what is intended with these old homes, which surely 
qualify for heritage status.  It would be wonderful to see them restored and used.
 I have soft spot of old homes, buildings, structures - so am inclined to want to a 
capture their beauty, even though they look worse for wear - it's as if feel I need to
record a memory in their honour!?    These just spoke volumes, still standing 
proud and steadfast, with their weathered detail and colours - 
amidst wild grasses and solid large oak trees ...
