St John Haw
The garden includes an Italian passage, an English walled garden, a potager and many formal water features. It also includes a marvellous selection of cast iron and wrought iron gates and railings, sourced from all over Pietermaritzburg. The property is terraced in the front with wide sweeping steps leading to the lower terrace where you can look back at the house. The veranda was enclosed, but has been opened up, and columns give the house a charming, almost Cape cottage feel. The whole property is in a state of wonderful work in progress; nevertheless it is a delight to visit. It is not suitable for people who might struggle with steps, slippery surfaces or heights.
