Description

Opportunity to secure iconic Hawkes Bay landmark


Ormlie Lodge; a magnificent two-story homestead, built in 1899 by wealthy landowner, William Nelson, as a wedding gift to his daughter. Nestled amidst 1.9040 ha (more or less) of landscaped grounds and mature specimen trees, adjacent to Napier golf course and perfectly positioned within the heart of the Hawkes Bay wine district between Napier and Hastings.

This iconic Hawkes Bay landmark has for many years operated as luxury accommodation, boutique restaurant and highly sought-after wedding and event venue, plus ballroom and adjacent bar area with cosy open fire. Six luxury guest rooms are complimented by contemporary ensuites. All four suites on the upper floor have direct access to the covered veranda with views over the grounds and beyond.

Adjacent to the homestead is the bonus of a generous self-contained cottage with two bathrooms, which could be utilised for owner, manager, guest accommodation, permanent rental or perhaps a day spa. The driveway and extensive parking area are tarsealed for all weather access.

Due to the owners increasing overseas commitments, they have made the decision to offer this much-loved property for sale. Consequently, long term bookings have been put on hold during the marketing campaign, with some recent events managed and catered through outsourcing. The new owners could easily reactivate the booking systems and commence business immediately.

The opportunities on offer at Ormlie are many and varied. In addition to accommodation and events, perhaps an artisan food business or cooking school from the large fully equipped commercial kitchen, or add a pizza oven to the courtyard area complemented with craft beer. Alternatively, you could return the homestead to its original purpose as one of the grandest private residences in Hawkes bay.

Whatever direction you decide to take this unique property in the future, the potential on offer at Ormlie Lodge, will only be limited by your imagination.
