This house is one of the finest examples of a nineteenth century gentleman's residence in Wellington. Although the architect for the house is not known, the well-proportioned front façade and fine architectural details suggest that an architect was responsible for the design. The rusticated weatherboards are the earliest known in Wellington. Built in 1866 for Dr Boor as a residence and surgery the house had a continued association with doctors until 1930.
