Etunzini - Heritage Portal - 2012

Designed in 1928 by the renowned architect Gordon Leith, for Mr and Mrs Lionel Rees, Etunzini is the epitome of the Arts and Crafts style. Three generations of the Glenton family (founders of Glenton and Mitchell teas) lived here from 1937 - 2011. The garden was the first commission of neighbour Joane Pim, South Africa's first landscape architect. She used only indigenous plants and created the water garden from shale on the site.
