Stonehouse Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2018

Building started here in March 1902 before the war had ended, as evidenced by the blockhouse which guarded Old Pretoria Road. Invited by the Governor Milner “to introduce a new and more permanent order of architecture into Johannesburg”, Baker became very successful designing homes on the ridge using the koppie stone of the Witwatersrand. The house was built by John Barrow and Sons. Baker lived here with friends from the “Kindergarten” until his marriage to Florence Edmeades in 1904. They left for India in 1913.
