Tour of Northward Mansion

Summary

Ever heard of the flamboyant couple Colonel John Dale Lace and his wife Josephine Dale Lace (Jose in short)? Jose was ‘The’ Socialite of note in the early Joburg of the Randlords -The mining magnates of the early gold rush. A woman known to have used a team of zebras (not horses) to draw her carriage.

Come and join us when we tour this couple’s prominent 52 rooms stunner of a house. And guess who was the architect behind it? The one and only Sir Herbert Baker.

Lots of ‘JUICY’ stories about this mansion and its interesting owner who lived in it. Perched on the Parktown Ridge it has some stunning views which will blow your mind.
