The Victorian Garden – Lindfield House
PDF Print E-mail


Lindfield is a turn of the century Herbert Baker home in Auckland Park. The true magic of this fascinating lived-in Victorian Museum lies within its walls where for two generations, the women of the Love family have amassed and cared for a vast collection of 19th and early 20th century furniture, art, decorative and utilitarian objects representative of the entire Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau period.

At present, 14 of the 22 rooms are open to the public, including not only reception rooms such as the Ladies' Drawing Room, Gentlemen's Library, Music Room and Dining Room but also two bedrooms, bathroom, pantries and the kitchen.

Each room on show is fully furnished and equipped, just as it would have been when the house was first lived in. The kitchen is ready for staff to prepare daily meals; the bathroom invites one to step into the boxed-in cast iron bath; in the Library one is tempted to browse away the day among the fascinating books lining the walls. In the Drawing Room a table is laid for an“at home” tea, while the dining room table awaits a party of elegant dinner guests.

Caxton Press calls Lindfield House “an epicenter for the historically inquisitive – a time capsule.” The Parktown Heritage Trust says “ A delightful heritage experience – a 5 star outing.
