Designed in 1906 by Marshall Brothers in “colonial baronial” style, many eclectic elements have been employed to embellish a veranda house. These include a Victorian archway, elaborate Tudor patterns on the gables and a cupola. It was built for John Wevell, a Cornishman and greatly respected carriage-builder and wagon-maker in Johannesburg, and his wife, Georgian. At that time it was known as Terrace Lodge.
