This is the Pah Homestead, the new home of the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre mentioned in yesterday’s post. Built between 1877 and 1879 for the Auckland businessman James Williamson as ‘gentleman’s residence’, it was one of the largest houses of the period. An impressive mansion, housing an impressive collection of contemporary New Zealand art. All this surrounded by Monte Cecilia Park.

    What a grand old mansion. The style is interesting. It would be hard to classify it. I like the multiple columns around the lower porch.

    Visiting the homestead ws a beautiful experience. The art was inspiring, more so because it is viewed in this wonderful environment.
