Built in 1874 as a family home, this property is a fine example of the Colonial style architecture from that era of NZ history. Completely re-built in 1996, the double-storey timber building reflects many features of the beautiful former home. The architectural design has endeavoured to preserve the classic country colonial lines, incorporating dormer windows in the sweeping roofs, with sheltering verandahs embracing the homestead and allowing guests to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the huge gardens featuring native NZ and exotic plants. The Pretty Woman's Gully Room features an ensuite shower with heated tiled floor, a luggage storage room and garden views. The Goldsborough Room comes with an ensuite featuring a spa bath/shower with heated tiled floor and mirror, along with a seating area with garden views.
