Be the lord or lady of this remarkable estate, one of the best-known properties in Lower Hutt. It is very private yet only 15 minutes away from Wellington CBD.
Your grand tour of this magnificent spot begins at the grand gates and takes you one km up a paved scenic driveway, passing 2 sparkling waterfalls on the way. The main house has been greatly enlarged and upgraded. Tudor-style, it features four generous bedrooms, including an upper-level master suite, many living & lounge areas, both formal and informal. There are also another two out-bedrooms. At every step, this home exudes quality: carara ceilings, jarra/matai floors, timber wall panels, inbuilt seating and lovely leadlight windows. The four bathrooms are situated internally, along with a games room with its own bar. The wine cellar & the huge farm-style kitchen is an entertainer’s dream. Well-insulated, the house is warm & comfortable.
In addition, the plantings on this property have been celebrated for almost a century. Tree ferns, cabbage trees, rhododendrons, avocados, walnuts & nikau palms are all well-established. Birdlife abounds, with tuis, fantails, wax-eyes & kingfishers, while monarch butterflies flutter by. The outdoor entertaining area is welcoming with a fireplace & a built-in barbecue in your own private piece of paradise.
