A Tour of L Ron Hubbards House in Linksfield

A little known Joburg fact, is the strong connection that this city shares with Scientology-in fact its founder L Ron Hubbard lived in Johannesburg for a short time, in the most beautiful house in Linksfield!

Recently I joined the curator of this house which is now a Scientology Heritage site for a tour. It was so interesting to learn more about the man and movement- I am no way affiliated with the religion but it is always interesting to learn about other belief systems. The house documents its founders life and Puneet, the Curator and Tour Guide was so fascinating.

I also have a HUGE OBSESSION with Mid Century Modern and design from the 1950's to 1970's and this house is the perfect example. Restored beautifully to what it looked like when L Ron Hubbard lived their in the 1960's, this house has the most beautiful carpets, furniture, wood panelled walls and floors. The architecture and view are also breath-taking.

If you are looking for something fun to do- why not take a visit to the house- it is so fascinating and well worth it.
