In not much over ten minutes you’re at Whangaehu Valley. Over 3 hectares of land long-loved – since the 1890s in fact – with house, barns, stables, rising out of the tree-ed paddocks, up from the stream at the border.

A large house sitting graciously on the slightest rise. All beautifully modernised but so as to preserve the fundamental common sense of the architecture of earlier times. The verandah – almost completely round the house. That means sun around the house winter (low sun angle) and summer (plenty of shade). It’s old and it’s new, a fine combination of how both can work. High stud, low general house profile. Rooms well separated, yet completely integrated. Friendly local neighbourhood.

Full access to common areas. Animals pens and paddocks maybe out of bounds depending on the time of year. You will be fully briefed on your arrival. Interaction with guests.

There’s always someone around to help and advise. If you don’t have transport other than public; we’ll happily pick you up from the station and get you back into town.
