The residence - which will be occupied by President Cyril Ramaphosa during his visits to the city - is a heritage building‚ which was first occupied in 1904 and has seven buildings within its grounds.

National public works department spokesman Thami Mchunu said renovations to the historic residence began last month.

“These have been necessitated by the storms that ravaged Durban in 2016.

“Comprehensive investigations and feasibility studies had to be done for the project to be registered. Also in order to ensure that the heritage aspect of the facility was not compromised‚ the heritage council in KZN - Amafa - was approached for input and approval of the proposed repairs‚” said Mchunu.

“The investigation also found that extensive repairs needed to be carried out. Wood borer infestation was also found and had to be addressed.”

The renovations include roof repairs to the main house‚ upgrading of security installations including cameras and a scanner‚ repairs to the housekeeper’s flat‚ repairs and renovations to the guest house and the house manager’s quarters.
