Little old house in Ahipara
This little place with it's ripped curtains and it's boarded up windows caught my attention last time we were in Ahipara. It wasn't hard to get to, right next to St Clement's Anglican Church it sits just off the road surrounded by overgrown grass and a muddy dirt driveway.
According to a couple of people who saw the photo after I shared it on a historical places page, it was first owned by a couple who lived in it in the 1940s and then owned by a local Kuia Tohunga (a Maori elder who was a natural healer). After she died it fell into abandonment, we didn't have time to go inside but maybe next time we are up that way I might have a look.
