It’s almost unbelievable that a steep hillside overlooking the Waiwhakaiho River could be sculpted into such a elegant landscaped garden with luscious borders, majestic trees and secluded outdoor rooms. Established by the Matthews family in the 1930s, Tupare’s central feature is a majestic house in the Arts and Crafts architectural style, based on the design by the renowned James Chapman-Taylor.
Soak up the atmosphere of this stunning landscaped garden and unique homestead and make the most of the beautiful gardens and picnic spots, the tennis court and the river flat with free gas barbeques.
