NZ House & Garden - - NEXT ISSUE -

It’s high sum­mer and we’ll help you stretch out that hol­i­day feel with beau­ti­ful homes that hug the out­doors, and sim­ply stylish food for easy en­ter­tain­ing

This ivy-clad man­sion near Tau­ranga knocked our socks off. Hard to say what im­pressed us most: the mix of new and tra­di­tional Ital­ian fur­ni­ture, the ex­pan­sive groomed gar­dens, or just the ar­chi­tec­tural grav­i­tas of it all. See it on our 8 March tour.
