The magic begins the minute you set foot in this beautiful mansion.
Knighted in 1922 for his pioneering role in the development of
Johannesburg, Julius Jeppe married Grace Cowen in 1891 and together they
had five children.
As its main benefactor, Johannesburg’s oldest public school, Jeppe High School for Boys was named after this prominent and generous businessman. Today, the View Hotel resides in the house which Sir Julius Jeppe built for his eldest daughter way back in those heady days of Johannesburg’s early development.
Steeped in history, this beautiful building underwent extensive
restoration which started in 2009 and now transports its guests back to a
bygone, golden era of over 100 years ago.
