Rouncil Homestead has functioned as a distinctive family home for 115 years. Since 1907 it has been owned by members of the same family and has not been on the market in that time.

The beautiful home is positioned up in the Havelock hills with extensive views over the Heretaunga Plains over as far as Napier. It sits on 7.5591 ha (more or less) of grounds and is located 6.8km from Havelock North, 10km from Hastings and 33 km from Napier Airport.

From arriving up the tree lined driveway you are welcomed by a large 367sqm (more or less) single level family home built of matai with rimu floors. Renovated and maintained over the years it has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a choice of living areas. One being a stunning arts and craft style drawing room designed to accommodate large parties, and includes extensive built-in book shelves, a large fireplace and beautiful views.

Within the grounds are a grass tennis court, swimming pool, vegetable, flower and rose gardens and a range of fruit trees including citrus, avocado, persimmon, feijoas, quince and more.

Eight paddocks are large enough to graze horses, sheep or cattle, and there are various outhouses for storage. Then down the driveway is a charming two-bedroom cottage converted from the original stables.

This is one of the few remaining homesteads situated close to the village where you can enjoy the shops and cafes. There's room to add your style, but this is a property that resonates from years of happy family times and memories, to be passed to a new generation who would love and cherish the same.
