A stunning tribute to the grand homes built by New Zealand's pioneering pastoralists, Homesteads shares a remarkable legacy of this country's rural heritage. These houses are among some of the country's most iconic, many of them surrounded by equally notable gardens, and all still lived in today. Jane Ussher's evocative photographs capture the unique character and architectural diversity of each homestead, while Debra Millar explores the stories that have shaped these landmark rural properties through generations. Featured homesteads include Mount Peel Station, Longbeach Estate, Terrace Station, Surrey Hills and Blue Cliffs Station in Canterbury; Gwavas Garden and Oruawharo in Hawke's Bay; Merchiston Station and Pukemarama Station in Manawatu; Puketiti Station on the North Island's remote East Coast; and Kuriheka Estate in Otago. This is a book that showcases an extraordinary range of architecture, interiors and gardens, and brings the past into the present day.

Truly stunning and one that will be most appreciated as a gift this Christmas. This is the story of New Zealand’s grand country houses, their stories, their families and teamed together with beautiful photography from the best – Jane Ussher.
