According to Brees in his "Pictorial Illustrations of New Zealand" p.34: "This view is taken on Section 28 of the Ohiro District, which is a very beautiful spot. If the house should ever be completed as the learned and tasteful owner intended, it will have a truly English appearance ... the section is moderately hilly and the soil good."
