Burns Street House – ‘Whareora’ Cambridge Museum

This large Victorian villa on the hill in Leamington was built over the summer of 1901/02 by William Hogan for £842 for William and Mary Rout.

There are 38 trees on the Waipa Protected Tree List, most of them planted by William before his death in 1909. These trees include some beautiful old camellias and rhododendrons.
