|Location||15 Truscott Avenue, Johnsonville, Wellington, New Zealand|
The house was built in about 1860 for Robert Bould, a pioneer farmer. He came to New Zealand with the New Zealand Company in the early 1840s and bought land, for a sheep farm, in Johnsonville in 1853.
Between the wars, the sheep farm became a dairy farm, run by Hayes and later Martelli. The land supported nearly forty Jerseys, brindles and Ayrshires without extra crops for feed.
Built in a simplified Georgian style it is one of the few remaining houses of this type in Wellington. The building, is classified as a "Category I" ("places of special or outstanding historical or cultural heritage significance or value") historic place by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
