Melrose House, Pretoria, Northern Gauteng.

Businessman George Heys built this Victorian Mansion, with its balconies, verandahs, gables and turrets, in 1886. The Peace of Vereeniging ending the Anglo-Boer War was signed here in 1902. The house is now a museum.

Melrose House is close to the intersection of the N4 with the R50 east of Pretoria. Take the Rigel Avenue exit off the N4 and travel east. The road eventually changes its name to Delmas (R50). Melrose House is south of and overlooks the R50. It is close to and easily seen from said highway. AGMelrose
