In 2014 we visited friends in New Zealand and they took us to visit Tupare a magnificent 3.6 hectare garden and beautiful Tudor-style home.
In 1932 Sir Russell and Lady Matthews started to create a garden from a gorse covered wilderness on the edge of the Waiwhakaiho River. They called it Tupare, which means ‘garland of flowers’. After a lifetime of artistic creation and love, the couple relinquished their home to the National Trust to ensure the protection of Tupare as part of New Zealand’s heritage. I invite you to follow this link to walk with me around the stunning gardens. But today I am going to show you the beautiful carved, solid Kauri doors.
Take a closer look…
More photos of the inside of this house are on my previous post and also the story of how lucky we were to have a private viewing.
These wardrobe doors fascinated me.
And look at the detail of the door fastener.
I hope you followed the link and went for a walk around the garden, it is one of the most beautiful gardens I have photographed.
