Governors Bay Road
Allandale, Canterbury
Sir Miles Warren has developed his spectacular Ohinetahi garden over several decades. Sculptures have been integrated into the design. It has an architectural character with " a sequence of clearly defined spaces or garden rooms leading into one another and arranged about interlocking axies". A small art gallery displays objects in Sir Miles' collection which have overflowed from the historic house.

The house, originally built in 1867 is a category 1 Historic Place.

The garden is open to the public on week days seven months of the year (admission charge).

The house was badly damaged in the September 2010 earthquake; Sir Miles rebuilt it though stone was removed from the upper story.

In November 2012 83 year old Sir Miles Warren announced he has created the Ohinetahi Charitable Trust for the Governors Bay property, to preserve it for New Zealanders and tourists.
