Arnold Cottage, 117 years young

Arnold Cottage

Still standing - somehow - after more than 100 years of waving to motorists coming and going from Cambridge, Arnold Cottage was the focal point for the beginning of the ambitious Te Awa Village project.
The historic building needed more than a facelift, it required some serious rehabilitation and remodelling. This is the sort of challenge the Rob May team thrives on. They picked apart the bones and reconstructed the cottage with careful attention to detail and heritage. More than a year later Arnold Cottage stands rejuvenated and ready to welcome visitors to Te Awa.
