George Heyes, who made his fortune in diamonds in the late 1800’s, commissioned the house. He used it for his honeymoon. It’s so why is a pretty but otherwise unassuming looking mansion in Pretoria so famous? Because ten years later, the British Army used it as its primary headquarters for the Second Boer War and it was in this house that the final treaty was signed and the war was ended. Today, the house is a museum, unchanged from its glory days. Almost everything has been preserved as it used to be. Architecturally, it’s supposed to be a delightful example of the transition from Victorian to Edwardian style. The decoration inside is rich and ornate and most of the historical items in here used to belong to the Heyes family. Check out the clay tennis court, the library, the tea garden and the stable cafe.
