2 Beds

Floor Area 78 m²

A neat spacious house in a quite and peaceful area. Freestanding and set on levelled land. Positioned in a small simplex of five units.

Clairwood became an area where Indian indentured labourers, who had completed their contracts, settled to raise their families. It was in the area known as the South Coast Junction, or Clairwood and District, that the largest Indian settlement outside India became established in the 1880s.

Despite, living by cultivating vegetables, the residents supplied vegetables, fruit and flowers to Durban and Pietermaritzburg. The community built temples, churches, mosques, schools and community centres.

The area has a mix of face-brick houses and secure, opulent homes sitting adjacent to several wood-and-iron buildings and businesses of trucking and other thriving industries.

The Shree Siva Soobramoniar Temple, known as the Sirdar Road temple, is a well-known place of worship. The history of the temple dates back to 1889 and even today chariot parades and various religious observances are performed at the temple, which was built with money donated by the community.

The Muslim community in Clairwood needed a cemetery and Madrassah (a place of learning), and in the early 1900s the Flower Road Mosque was built. The land was purchased from the Durban council using donations from the community, and the cemetery also served the greater Durban area.

In 1942 Father Weist and the parishioners built the present church. The St Louis Catholic Church on Jacobs Rd is a national monument.

With red, polished floors and cream and green-trimmed pillars, the Clairwood Boys Primary School, in Done Road, is on the heritage list. The pretty and well maintained courtyard area forms the anchor of the classroom blocks that wrap around it, with some of the original wooden beams still standing strong.

Clairwood has a wealth of history and its residence are proud of it.

So why not make Clairwood your home to relax and enjoy!!!
