Butler House Added as a Category 2 Historic Place

3 Otahuri Crescent - Street view 2

Butler House (Former) has been added to the New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero as a Category 2 historic place.

Situated in Greenlane Auckland, the site had early connections to Te Waiohua and Ngāti Whātua, then later with James Dilworth and the Dilworth Trust Estate.

Constructed from brick, Marseille tiles, and timber, the residence combines progressive approaches to architectural design with more traditional Arts and Crafts influences. The progressive nature of the Butler House design was recognised by the Auckland Branch of the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) in 1936.
