This house was the Official Magistrate's Residence in Port St Johns. It now belongs to the Department of Works, and houses the offices of the SANDF Port St Johns Regiment. This once beautiful old building is deteriorating fast. The garden has become a jungle that extends all the way to the Umzimvubu River mouth's beach.

There has been talk of building government offices on the property. The Wild Coast Museum would like to see the buidling restored to its former glory rather than demolished to make way for offices.
