Te Whiti Homestead is one of New Zealand's magnificent homesteads set amidst several acres of gardens with mature stands of oak, elm and magnolias. The ambience of Te Whiti lends itself to a personal haven from the hectic world and provides a soothing atmosphere that comes from the large trees and the substantial homestead.
Te Whiti will appeal the moment you drive up the tree lined driveway. Privately positioned within the Wairarapa and conveniently located 5 minutes from Masterton township, schools and transport, approximately one and a half hours drive to Wellington.
Located on the banks of the Ruamahanga River, Te Whiti Homestead was built in 1896 for Mr Herbert Wardell the then Magistrate for the Wairarapa, and was originally part of a 4,000 acre sheep and cattle property. Over time the land was subdivided and now Te Whiti stands on 6.15ha. The current owners purchased the property in 2002 and have restored and renovated the homestead to its former glory. While the historic style of the homestead has been maintained it has been enhanced with modern services and heating systems.
Three very gracious formal living rooms, formal dining and a comfortable family room. The property is ideal for functions and bed and breakfast with seven bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. Wonderful balconies, veranda and north east facing deck welcome the outdoors. Properties like this are rare, so don't delay call Prue Hamill for an appointment to view. $1,375,000NZD
