Highwic is one of New Zealand's finest timber Gothic houses, dating from 1862. The house remained with the Buckland family until it was sold to the Auckland City Council and the New Zealand Historic Places Trust in 1978. It is furnished with period pieces and has fine gardens that provide a haven from the bustle of nearby Newmarket.
