Rondavel built on Glenview in 1946

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

My first home as these two rondavels and house were built on my grandfather's 100 acre property called "Glenview" while my father was doing his articles in accountancy. Even though we moved to Chisipite after my father qualified I spent many school holidays back in the homestead. There were the remains of stone fortifications near the top of the hill which had been built for protection from the Matabele raiders.

Thanks for visiting, Ian. This was my first house and I slept in the first rondavel, but we moved when I was three to Dover Road
