McLean's Mansion was initially known as 'Holly Lea', but later became known as MacLean's Mansion after its initial owner.
It is a homestead on two hectares of property situated between Manchester and Columbo Streets in Christchuch. It was the largest wooden residence in the country when originally built (April 1899-September 1900).
The mansion, designed by Robert England, is a fusion of styles of Jacobean architecture with Victorian features. Much like Mentmore Towers (1852-54) of Sir Joseph Paxton in Buckinghamshire, England.
The house is registered as a Category 1 heritage building by Heritage NZ.
Simon Construction are currently undergoing a lengthy renovation of this historical building.
