The Troyeville House was built in 1902 on a ridge overlooking the Johannesburg inner city. It is now a heritage site, immersed in the eclectic inner-city neighbourhood of ‘Makers Valley’, a microcosm of South Africa and the world.
This 7 bedroom Victorian mansion is now owned by Akoma which has its offices located at the house. Its previous owners include the Master of the High Court, The Salvation Army, Gwen Gill (Editor of the Sunday Times) and Jennifer Ferguson (a renowned singer and activist).
The Troyeville House is located a short distance from the vibrancy of The Maboneng Precinct and Victoria Yards and is a 10 minute drive from the N3 highway- giving access to both the energy of the inner city and convenient transport links.
The house and its grounds are a hub for local changemakers and play host to a range of events and activities including music, poetry, shoots, screenings, an afternoon school programme and *much more*. The Troyeville House is also a permanent home for students and artists alike.
