Pruden Home at Rawhitiroa (near Eltham)
As yet I have been largely unable to find out much information about the home other than it was built by/for the PRUDEN family. I have personally visited the relics of the homestead many times and in its heyday it must have been a beautiful home. The photographs below were taken approximately 10 years ago (2004). There was at that stage still pieces of the original glass around the outside of the house although no windows were intact. The homestead is now in a very dilapidated state. it is situated on Rawitiroa Road. The driveway access to the homestead is only 700 meters approx from the gates of the Eltham cemetary. Rawhitiroa is on the outskirts of Eltham.
