Named Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House (te reo Māori component is a reference to the stream to the north side, also known as the Okeover), the property has been interpreted in a way that celebrates the life and work of Sheppard without attempting to exactly replicate her milieu. Where period furniture and treatments have been used, they’re given a contemporary twist.
