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.

  • This property has a lot going for it and should be ****

    This property has a lot going for it and should be ****. Fabulous views, plenty of bedrooms and grandeur (albeit a bit faded) of a past era. It was let down by a few small things such as not having enough dishes in the kitchen, a faulty dishwasher handle, and worst of all a disgusting looking stain on the night stand in the front bedroom. Having said that, we would stay again.

    Fantastic property! Really impressive house and grounds made for a very enjoyable stay. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Can be a little hard to find with the driveway entrance not matching up with Google Maps (the house is about 1km from the driveway entrance) - but otherwise, tops.

    Hard to find this property as GPS does not get you to exactly the right spot. Beautiful location once you get there. The property could do with some work but overall it was a fun experience to stay here.
