Lisburn House was completed in 1865 as a townhouse for an Outram farming family. This two-storey Gothic-style townhouse has been preserved in original exterior condition, with decorative polychrome brickwork walls, latticework slate roof and stained glass. The interior features a marble-floor entrance hall with sweeping carved staircase, panelled dining room, open fireplaces, tall arched windows, high ceilings, cornices and spindles. The home is rated by the Historic Places Trust as a "Category One" historic home. It is a national treasure. An English-style garden has been developed to complement the established English trees and New Zealand native trees.
