The original house was constructed sometime around 1930 and was renovated and revamped in 2011, when the exquisite accommodation suites, rooms were constructed. In 2012, Q on First Guesthouse opened its doors.

Aged Canadian Maple trees provide an enchanting entrance from the First avenue. The fine collection of antiques and Persian carpets adorns the reception rooms, warmed by fires when winter`s chill sets in.

Terry Martin attained the beautiful property in 1985 and the property was then a family home. He loved the lanes of Canadian Maple trees in the street and the house entertained several visitors throughout the years until Terry decided to convert it into an upmarket Guesthouse.
