Historic Places Trust category II registered building that was built on the original 20 acre site in 1854 for a successful merchant, Alfred Fell, it was often described as the grandest and most luxurious home in New Zealand. This solidly constructed, 810 square metre building was very strongly built throughout with great beams of kauri and 28 millimetre thick matai floors. All weatherboards, ceilings and most doors are heart kauri. Weatherboards on several sides were covered with a heavy stucco render in the 1950s, which gives it the distinctive castle appearance. The exterior is now painted rich Colonial cream, with burgundy timber joinery and the original 7000 tiled, high pitched Welsh slate roof.
