Built in 1916 and set in one of Johannesburg's most iconic Jacaranda covered streets in the heart of Parktown West, this upmarket property was once known as House Burns and during the 1960's as the infamous "Gasworks".

This heritage house was commissioned by E.M Burns and initially designed by Sydney Percival Hill Mitchelson, born in Bournemouth, England. HIll Mitchelson worked in Johannesburg from about 1904 until about 1935. He was listed in the United Transvaal Directory of 1915 as civil engineer, quantity surveyor and architect and was responsible for many sizable buildings in Johannesburg, including a number of apartment buildings and houses.

The house has been home to six different owners since being built in 1916 and now boasts a fully restored structure, set in a contemporary open plan living space and luxurious design, surrounded by a landscaped forest of vegetation.

The open plan living space which includes a designer kitchen including a combination oven, built in coffee machine, oven and five plate hob, dining area and sit-in TV room opens up to a magnificent outlook towards the gardens, swimming pool and boma further offering exceptional reception and entertaining space, with family areas reserved for a more discrete sense of relaxation, both well designed and benefiting from bespoke finishes.

Energy consumption is Eco-friendly with the use of municipal gas while the contemporary design promotes light intake through higher ceilings and larger windows.

The family area is split over two floors and comprises of four bedroom suites (with two en-suite bathrooms), with impressive original high pressed ceilings and Oregon pine flooring. Aside from the two generous reception areas, the main building also benefits from two matching designer study areas, each fitted with desks and bookshelves with each of the family bathrooms fitted with double basins, a bath and frameless glass showers in a matching contemporary design.

The property further offers two street entrances, the first with parking space for 3 guests and the second offering 3 generously large garages. The property also includes a studio flatlet with a separate bathroom and entrance.

The title deed of the property specifically provides that the property be permitted for business use.
