Ohinetahi is the home of Sir Miles Warren, renowned Christchurch architect and passionate gardener. In this delightful description of his house, his garden and the major artworks within the garden, Sir Miles tells the fascinating history of the property, details the many architectural changes made since construction of the house began in the 1850s and describes the development of the stunning garden that is now visited by many hundreds of people every year. Filled with beautiful photographs, and told with his usual wry humour, Sir Miles relates the trials and tribulations of reconstructing an old homestead, and then of later having to repair it following the 2011 earthquakes. His tone of unabashed wonder and delight as he describes the ever-changing garden, makes this succinct history of an exceptional property a sheer delight to read.
