Governer Grey's Mansion House

The large mansion house on Kawau Island constructed by Governor Sir George Grey in the 19th century enlarging what was previously the island farm manager's residence into a house more worthy of a governor. There are no roads on Kawau just a few dirt tracks and this house faces directly onto the beach and wharf in Mansion House Bay. This is listed as a category 1 historic building and is preserved inside and out in a state that replicates the conditions as closely as possible to those at the time of Sir George.

Time to shoot a few snaps but still - Rather short of time at present with study and work but having a look at everyone's splendid images when I can.
