Hacklewood Hill Country House has officially closed its doors for a much anticipated soft refurbishment. Although the changes underway are not too drastic we are excited to see what our interior design team, headed up by the ever so talented Alison Van Zijl, have in place for the grand, ‘olde lady’s’ facelift.
For those of you who don’t know, Hacklewood Hill Country House was built in 1898 in the leafy suburbs of Walmer, Port Elizabeth. The Victorian manor is characterised by its colonial charm, original antiques, vintage styled and individually decorated bedrooms and large Victorian bathrooms. The house is one of the last of its kind and celebrates a bygone era of colonial charm, good conversation and fine dining.
At this point of the refurbishment the team will be focussing their efforts on the ‘Yellow Lounge and Dining Room’ and the ‘Loerie Bedroom’. As not to distract from the originality of this vintage establishment the refurb will conclude with a similar look and feel to maintain and enhance the Victorian elegance of Hacklewood.
Our little country house will reopen on the 4th August. Until then stay tuned for further updates on our soft refurbishment.
