Description

'Rotowhenua' - Historic Hawkes Bay Homestead


The homestead of Alexander Alexander, one of Napier's earliest settlers, was built in the late 1800s. Over the years 'Rotowhenua' has been remodelled but still retains the stunning character features and ambience of yesteryear. The tasteful and highly functional kitchen, dining and living room are the hub of this large family home. With sliding windows and servery out to the sunny back deck, morning brunch and dining alfresco has never been easier.The formal lounge, with open fire leads to a massive billiards room and library nook. French doors open to the sheltered, sunny front verandah and lawn... perfect for afternoon drinks and a game of petanque. On the lower level is the family bathroom and two double bedrooms, each with built in furniture. Two generous sized bedrooms and a second bathroom are found on the upper level, master with bi-fold windows opening to panoramic views.

Located near the village of Puketapu, Rotowhenua is in close proximity to the popular Puketapu pub, restaurant, store, cycle trails, wineries and local swimming spot. Forget about the morning school rush with Puketapu School (Year 0-8) just minutes away and a school bus service to Napier High Schools. The Taradale shops are under 10 minutes away, with the arterial route making Napier CBD and HB Airport easily accessible.This unique homestead, steeped in history, is waiting to be given a new lease of life. With some T.L.C. Rotowhenua is ready for you to make your mark and restore this lovely family home to its former glory or modernise to create a stunning fusion of old and new.
