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. You will love every bit of this beautiful estate. From the spacious and full of character house that was built for entertainment to the lovely ground settings. You will find yourself among the birds, the trees, your family and nothing else. This is truly a magical spot and will be the highlight of your holiday.

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 by its the previous owners. Tudor-style, it features five generous bedrooms, including an upper-level master suite, many living & lounge areas, both formal and informal. 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.

    The house is in an amazing location with some fantastic views over Wellington. It was very cold on arrival in the house due to the lack of central heating and no fire/heaters being on prior to our arrival - but Hieu kindly gave us portable heaters to use for each room. It would have been great to be pre-warned about the need for these.

  • Amazing property

    Amazing property. Warning about the steep drive would of been good especially as we arrived when dark. I think a lockbox for the key would work better then in the mail box. And ensuring the wood is fully stocked in the house. Having to go and do a wood run on arrival in he dark wasn't ideal. ( ideally a fire going for the renters on arrival would of been perfect as it took a while for the house to warm up)

    The property is an older style property, which had character but a few bits of maintenance and it would make it prefect. Would be very happy in returning to this property with friends.
