The old Nixon Homestead and associated barn are historic buildings located close to Auckland International Airport. The earliest section of the homestead dates from 1852.
Two additional historical buildings were moved onto the site, the former Westney Homestead built in 1855, and the Mangere Methodist Church, constructed in 1856.
The complex now comprises a distinctive collection of buildings that have been modified and sensitively adapted for new and sustainable uses. Abbeville Estate operates as a popular events function venue.
