Beautiful Country Home


This elegant homestead (circa 1917), set in park-like grounds, has been completely renovated and restored to meet the requirements of modern living, while preserving the historic features and character of the building. Architecturally designed in the Arts and Craft style as the homestead for the original St Helens Station, which at one stage was close to 250,000 acres. Nowadays the two-storey limestone homestead is set on 20ha with many established specimen trees and a pond system.

A home of grand proportions (750sqm), with four formal or casual living areas, plus modern kitchen/dining, library, conservatory, entrance hall and playroom. Six large bedrooms and an office or seventh bedroom, four luxurious modern bathrooms (six toilets), large covered veranda and various servants' rooms. A separate four bedroom home is on the property as well, ideal for extended family, staff, rental or holiday accommodation. Recently completely renovated and restored with infinite attention to detail. Improvements include a fully automated commercial grade heating and cooling system, a home automation system, a full rewire, re-plumb and re-roof, a high-pressure water system, insertion of a structural steel cage, bespoke joinery (including shoe cupboards in the master bedroom) and top of the range European appliances. Historic features have been preserved including feature open fireplaces, rimu panelling and doors and stone-framed steel windows.

A truly stunning and special home close to the vibrant Hanmer Springs Village and hot pools and only an hour and a half drive along a popular and scenic tourist route from Christchurch Cty.

Because it is impossible to do it justice in a few words and photos, we have prepared a comprehensive information booklet with more photos and information including floor plans, a schedule of the substantial improvements undertaken during the recent renovation, and an outline of the fascinating history of St Helens Station and its homestead.
