10 2nd Avenue Houghton Estate

Rated 9.4 in 9 reviews. 15 rooms.


10 2ND AVENUE HOUGHTON ESTATE was built in 1932 on 10 000 m2 of land. The original house was used as a convalescent home for injured soldiers during World War 2. Many families went on to own the upmarket property, enjoying its surroundings, the tennis court and the lavish lifestyle offered by the suburb in the 70's and 80's. The mansion, with a deep recessed front veranda, quaint balconies and grand bay windows was beautifully nestled into a lush landscaped garden.
The entrance of the property still has original items of the original house such
as the original cloak room. The hotel also has the original cellar which is used to
this day. The terrace room 9 has the original 1932 floor.
The property was bought in 1995 and then converted into one of the first
guesthouses in Johannesburg. In 2003 the property closed for 6 months for
renovations and conversion into a 5 star boutique hotel. In July 2003 10 2ND AVENUE
HOUGHTON ESTATE opened up as a 5 star Boutique Hotel.
Our experience of Gracious Living in Luxury can be made available through our staff.
