Description

Historic Ruby Bay homestead


Built in 1867 as a holiday home for notable businessman, Edmund Buxton, this historic building was the first home built between Richmond and Motueka.

Smaller and less ornate than Broadgreen, his family home in Stoke, its classic proportions, high gabled roof, French doors and rimu panelled interior doors reflect the Dutch-Colonial style architecture of the period. The house is built of native timbers, predominantly rimu with some totara, and matai floorboards.

This quiet and secluded 3.24 hectare coastal property includes the charming Category II listed historic home with a 3-storey rear extension and an elevated studio unit with internal and external access, an underground wine cellar, a two-bedroom cottage, a 3-bay Skyline garage with a sleep-out and a spacious outdoor entertaining area which comprises a fully compliant swimming pool and spa pool.

Rich in history and charm, with stunning sea views over Ruby Bay beach, this property offers a total of eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and multiple living areas amongst the dwellings.

Whether you cherish her as she is or renovate, opportunities abound in this this is a sprawling property, bursting with character.
