Ormlie Lodge - lifestyle and business opportunity

Bayleys Real Estate Ltd is pleased to offer Ormlie Lodge, for sale by way of Tender closing 5 September 2019 (unless sold prior).

Ormlie Lodge, this renown Hawkes Bay landmark until recently has operated as a luxury accommodation, corporate retreat, wedding/conference events, and boutique restaurant business. Due to the current owners increased overseas commitments, this property is being offered for sale.

Perfectly located in the heart of Hawkes Bay wine district and between Napier and Hastings, Ormlie Lodge holds an impressive history, being the former home of Gertrude Smith, and built in 1899 as a wedding gift by her wealthy father, William Nelson. Adjacent to the Napier Golf Course, this beautiful boutique estate combines contemporary living with old world charm. A rich piece of history right at your Fingertips. The grand villa offers a stunning ballroom, commercial kitchen, bar, restaurant and six luxurious guest rooms (each with their own ensuite). Outside, the landscaped gardens, mature trees and beautifully maintained grounds allow you to get lost in your own backyard of 1.9049ha (more or less). There is also a self contained cottage onsite which could be used for owner, manager, guest or rental accommodation.

Depending on the future owners intention there is also ample room for further development. The new owner could continue and expand on this theme by taking advantage of the extensively fitted out commercial kitchen to create the ultimate boutique accommodation, events, food production and out catering business. Alternatively the property could be established as a unique and quite outstanding corporate head office. The option also exists to run a business from the commercial kitchen and also create an amazing family lifestyle by returning the property to its former glory as one of the grandest private residences in Hawkes Bay.

Whatever the future direction the potential at Ormlie Lodge is very significant!
