Oldsworth is situated on the shores of False Bay in the Strand. Strand, along with Somerset West and Gordon's Bay, forms part of the picturesque hub of the Helderberg basin which is one of the most visually dramatic areas in the Cape.
The Hottentots Holland and Helderberg Mountain ranges create a powerful backdrop against which the valley descends into vineyards and finally on to a coastline swept with warm waters and effortlessly sandy beaches. Strand is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Cape, with its famous five kilometre stretch of silver sand. It is also considered one of the safest beaches in the Cape Province, and is known as the "Golden Mile"
The original house was built in the early 1930's when the act of building was still done in the age old tradition of the masonry art. The ceilings are typical of the period, high for the coolness of the South African summers. The wooden floors lend that little extra to create an authentic antique atmosphere, not to mention the décor, with appropriate furniture. Upon entering the house it is as if time stands still and the pleasant restfulness overwhelms you, stripping you immediately of all urges to carry on with the rushes of the times.
