Paulet house

We are grateful to Mrs Phoebé Gerwel for the donation of the late Professor Jakes Gerwel’s beloved historical home in Paulet Street in Somerset East at the foot of the picturesque Bosberg about 200 km north of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. This friendly house with its old-world charm, spacious rooms, wooden floors, and luscious garden offers the ideal opportunity to writers to work in an inspiring environment on their manuscripts. With the doors of Paulet House wide open to the arts, the Jakes Gerwel Foundation fulfils their mission to give support to especially young writers.
