History of 305

The original house was built in 1969.  Mr and Mrs Woodhead bought the house from an elderly spinster, who lived with 19 cats.  It was then only a 2 bedroom house which Mr Woodhead extended to a 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom house.

It was often referred to by local ski boat fishermen as the “Doll House”, being the only double story house in Iphala Road at the time.  The fishermen often used it as a marker for the fishing reefs.

Featured is the image of the original 305 house in its first days of glory.

“Mammie” is now a resident at one of our local retirement villages and pops in regularly for a bite to eat in her old home!
