My wife Susanne and I are New Zealanders - I'm from the deep south and she is from the far north - we met in London. I was a senior partner in Ernst & Young in New Zealand, and spent a number of years in global roles in Asia, Middle East and Africa, before we returned to New Zealand in 2013.
HS1199 purchased this House in 2003
Why HS1199 chose Waimate District
Holme Station Homestead has a treasured place in the development of New Zealand as a young colony. Founded in 1862, the property was expanded to incorporate over 88,000 acres , and became one of the largest wool growing and cereal cropping properties in the new colony. By the 1890s Holme Station was a leading social centre in South Canterbury. When purchased in 2003, the property was in very poor condition, and required a complete refurbishment to restore her to her former glory. We have displayed the full history of the property in the upstairs library and hallway.

Unbelievable, what an amazing property . Huge but very comfortable and so warm.
An amazing house we all loved it and had a fantastic time here . Felt very at home despite the grand proportions . Was a truly wonderful home to stay in . When we arrived we were met at the house and there where fires already lit for us.
Thank you Rachel, for your kind comments - they are very much appreciated.
We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your party stay at Holme Station Homestead, and we loved the way everyone responded so well to our rich colonial history and ambience. Loved your comment about feeling very much at home despite the grand proportions as that is the very essence of Holme Station Homestead, and is indeed the balance we wished to capture throughout our massive refurbishment.
We would love to welcome you back to Holme Station Homestead in the near future !
