Description

Rare hospitality and lifestyle opportunity


Set on 15 hectares of land, Oruawharo Homestead is a unique wedding and function venue, with the historic homestead and chapel laid out in a picturesque parkland setting.

At the heart of the property lies the Heritage New Zealand category-one listed Victorian homestead. Completed in 1879, it features the kind of detailing synonymous with the period - ornate pressed metal ceilings, sash windows, chandelier lighting, decorative fireplaces and beautiful solid native timber joinery and floors. Significant restoration has been undertaken with meticulous attention to detail, and although there is some work yet to be completed the majority of work, including upgrading the infrastructure of the homestead to current standards, has been done. Downstairs, the homestead features an impressive 'ballroom' with a notable native timber ceiling, living areas including the 'hall' with exquisite timber staircase, a library, an expansive dining room and a farmhouse kitchen, complete with Aga. Upstairs there are ten bedrooms, four with beautifully appointed ensuites.

'Vincent's' chapel, formerly St Vincent's Church, was relocated to the property and transformed into a stunning venue for weddings and special functions. The chapel features beautiful timber paneling and charming leadlight windows, and provides for indoor dining or relaxed alfresco dining under the trees. Its facilities will leave you wanting for nothing, with quality multimedia equipment for audio and visual displays and boasting a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen.

Outbuildings include a well appointed two-bedroom cottage and the original carriage house and stables. The croquet lawn in front of the homestead offers an ideal location for outdoor gatherings, being naturally sheltered from the prevailing wind. This busy and successful business presents a wonderful opportunity, and has scope to be taken to the next level. For a full information memorandum please contact Tim Wynne-Lewis.
