Hi Christine Dunedin is, as you say, lucky to have Olveston - an authentic experience in the heart of Dunedin. We are glad you enjoyed the furniture and the painting. Best wishes Christine Mehrtens
Hi Jelia We are glad you had an informative tour and appreciated the well cared for mansion. The Theomins certainly had all the modern conveniences of the time. Although Olveston is in the central city it is uphill to get here. The upside is it is all downhill on the way back! Best wishes Christine Mehrtens
