SHIRLEY

Designed in 1907 by the English architect Herbert Henry Snowball who saw active service in the Anglo Boer War, this was the home of Dr Everard Digby and his wife Leila. Dr Digby, a dentist, travelled to the City each day by horse. The house was designed to enjoy magnificent views in all directions and dominated Parkview for many years until tall trees softened its commanding stature.
