Perfectly positioned amidst 1.9049ha (more or less) of landscaped grounds, this iconic Hawkes bay landmark has for many years operated as a luxury accommodation, boutique restaurant and wedding venue. Boasting a large fully equipped commercial kitchen, a separate restaurant space with seating for 50 and a ball room catering for up to 150 seated guests, provides you with immense scope for future business growth.
The property is Perfectly located between Napier and Hastings, within the heart of the Hawkes Bay wine district and adjacent to popular Napier Golf Course. This magnificent homestead originally built 1899 by wealthy landowner, William Nelson, as a wedding gift for his daughter Gertrude, combines old world charm with contemporary living. There are six luxury guest rooms, all with ensuites. This is a unique opportunity to secure your very own slice of Hawkes bay history. There is also the added bonus of a separate self-contained cottage adjacent to the homestead which could be utilised for owner, manager, additional guest accommodation or rental.
Due to the current owners increasing overseas commitments, they have decided to offer this magnificent property for sale. Consequently, long term bookings have been put on hold for the time being, with some events being managed and catered through outsourcing. The new owners, should they wish, could easily reactivate the booking systems and commence business immediately. The opportunities here are many and varied. Operate a business from the commercial kitchen, cooking school, out catering or artisan food production, in conjunction with the accommodation and event business. Alternatively, you could return the property to its former glory as one of the grandest private residences in Hawkes bay.
Whatever direction you decide to take this stunning property in the future, the potential on offer at Ormlie Lodge will only be limited by your imagination.
