The extensive country property, covering 10,000 square feet over three floors of public rooms, owners and guest rooms, servants quarters and facilities, has been completely refurbished.
The restoration was massive, with the homestead fitted with every modern convenience, with substantial strengthening of the 100 year old structure, and with extensive re-modelling to reflect our modern lifestyle - the old servants quarters were opened up, a full modern kitchen installed as the social centre of the homestead, central heating added, luxury bathrooms were installed, the huge fireplaces were returned to their former blazing glory, and the homestead was opened to the glorious grounds with patios and French doors.
Importantly, the retention of the warm, embracing, timeless ambiance of the original was retained, to provide today's unique blend of historical country elegance and modern convenience.
3 bedrooms (2 upstairs and 1 ground floor) have large en-suite bathrooms, plus 2 more large shared bathrooms upstairs, and one smaller bathroom and shower on ground floor.
Fires may only be lit in our ground floor fire-places with our Manager's express permission.
The upper level fireplaces are not operable, under any circumstances
If open fires are lit, spark guards must be up at all times, and fires must not be left unattended
Extras: an additional Cleaning and Linen charge of NZ$450/stay will be levied for groups above 10 guests
