Perched high on the Parktown Ridge, Emoyeni was designed by the architects of their time, William Leck and Frank Emley, for Henry Hull, who would later become the Union’s first Minister of Finance. The red-brick home is perhaps Johannesburg’s most accomplished statement of Wren-inspired architecture. The details are quintessentially Edwardian - Tuscan colonnades, Palladian windows, white eaves trim, stone insets and segmental pediments – but the scale, befitting its important owner, is monumental.

Explore this grand house with us, and hear about its fascinating history, and then enjoy tea and refreshments on the terrace with one of the best views in Joburg.
