Emoyeni in Zulu means “up in the air” and is very appropriate with sweeping panoramic views over Johannesburg’s northern suburbs, extending all the way to the Magaliesburg. The Estate offers discerning guests the opportunity to soak up the views and enjoy functions in this extraordinary venue, whilst delighting in cuisine prepared by the well known and very talented chef Nicky Gibbs.
This Edwardian-era masterpiece was built by architects Leck and Emley in 1905 for the Honorable Henry Hull, who became the Minister of Finance in the first Union Government. The house was used to host lavish parties for the Rand Lords of the Day and although changing hands several times over the next few decades, remained the most glittering social milieus of Johannesburg society. The drawing room rang to a wide range of music as the quadrilles gave way to the waltzes and two-steps of the sounds of ragtime.
