The house was built and finished in 1992 and the name is well-known in Yzerfontein. The owners found the lewens-essens medicine bottle on the plot and decided that there was no better way to get “Essence for one’s life” than by enjoying the wonderful views and sun sets from the front stoep and rooms.

The historic bottle was mounted with the name and can be seen on the front of the house.
