He pārongo atu anō'Siberia' homestead, near Ashhurst

Mr Arthur Harding initially leased the property, then in 1906 his wife Isabella bought the land and together they build the 18 roomed 'Siberia' homestead. Also built on the property were stables, garages, sheds, stores for livestock and agricultural produce and a second house for employees. In 1941 a small airforce trainer aeroplane crashed into the upstairs nursery, demolishing part of the house and severely damaging the rest. The house was burnt down in 1961 due to an electrical fault.
