A palm-lined driveway welcomes people to Te Kukumara, a landscaped garden with many different spaces to explore. Mass plantings give a relaxed feel to this property, which features deciduous trees, native plants, a large lake, spacious lawns, resort-style courtyard, raised vegetable gardens, bird aviary, and a large flock of white pigeon doves.  Of interest is an eclectic collection of sculptures, a children’s playground, croquet/archery lawn and a magnificent collection of cars. Visitors can view everything from an Austin A40, to a military Hummer; large American classics to British sports cars. The latest addition is a 1970 Plymouth Superbird – an American muscle car.

A golf cart is available for people who have difficulty walking distances. Please contact the owner.
