137 High Street Guest House
Andy Mullins of 137 High Street Guest House turned his passion for renovations, not only into a profitable business, but a lasting memory for many visitors that come to visit Makhanda.
Andy, together with his wife, Cavel, owns 137 High Street Guest House - originally built by Piet Retief in 1823. Andy and Cavel bought the building back in 1993 when they were approached by Pam Golding to have a look at it as a possible renovation project.
This was followed by the decision to transform the old building into a bed and breakfast. "When I came to renovate it, I discovered original yellow-wood ceilings that I had to take down, clean them up and put back up again in their original state... they now look magnificent. Same goes with the floors. They were in a shocking state. I re-sanded the floors and re-varnished them," Andy said.
Andy's completed renovation of this Georgian style house came with beautiful results and without taking away the building's old world charm.
