The Melville Turret is a landmark building in Melville, Johannesburg and was built in 1906 by Erik

Over the years the house has been used for many purposes; private residence, boarding house, architects offices, back packers lodge and now a guest house.

The house has recently been renovated, with a mix of the old and new, traditional and
contemporary, with the end result been an eclectic mix but still remaining true to the original splendor and glory of the property
