House on the Hill

Rural legend says this house was transported to its spectacular hilltop location sometime in the 1980’s. Allegedly the farmer who owned the property, had intended to renovate the house and make it the family home. Apparently though soon after the building was in place, the couple separated and the man was left to bring up the children on his own. Then, because he couldn’t afford to spend any more time and money on the house, it duly deteriorated and is still standing like a folly decades later. Check out our videos here and here.

  1. This house has intrigued me for years, it was moved from Broadway in Palmerston North. Are the stairs gone and all the panelling in the hallways? Apparently they were beautiful, along with the plaster ceilings.
