Alberton

An elegant residence with a nod to the Raj, home to socialite suffragettes, high tea and ballroom capers, delights all who enter. Alberton was once part of large 'country estate' on the slopes of Mt Albert, but now in the heart of Auckland.

Acerca de

Alberton began as a farmhouse in 1863 and was enlarged in the later 19th century to become an 18-roomed Kauri mansion with exotic Indian-style verandas and towers. Allan Kerr Taylor was a landowner, investor and provincial & local body politician. His wife Sophia was an outspoken advocate of the vote for women.

Visitors today could be forgiven for thinking the family has just popped out for a while. When bequeathed to the public in 1972, the Kerr Taylor's descendants left the house furnished with a treasure trove of original artefacts.

The mansion's past is brought back to life through regular public events; tea parties, concerts, exhibitions and workshops. A gift shop sells unique jewellery, home-wares, and souvenirs.
