Shortly after the completion of the Pretoria Netherlands Bank, Eaton designed a house for the Managing Director at the time, Dr Holsboer. Harrop-Allin considers this as a “transition” between the earlier Anderssen and Greenwood houses and the later Moolman and Van den Berg houses. Similar to the first two, he used rough stonework for all external walls – but like the latter two he employed large glazed areas. This particular house has a pitched roof and deep eaves, unlike the others.
See the plan showing how this house would fit onto another site in Johannesburg in November 1959 (07863)!
Single storey 4 bedroom house for Dr. H. Holsboer. Shingle roofing. Natural stone clad brick walls. Drawings available: section. Organic garden design with pools and swimming bath. See also 07577.
