Overview

This neo-Georgian beauty was originally built as a home and private surgery for Sir James Eliott, a practising general practitioner, who was Irish by birth but lived, worked and died in New Zealand. At the time of its construction it caused some controversy for its diversion from the typical timber building material but it now stands in scholarly splendour amongst the commercial surrounds. The double-pitched roof has been converted in the last 10 years to incorporate a third storey, but otherwise the building's original symmetrical character remains unchanged.
