Description

Timaru's best kept secret


This private country estate is set amongst magnificent established grounds and gardens, contributing to the noted scenic beauty of the surrounding area. The property's rich history dates back to the early settlement of Canterbury and now comprises a total of 11.7999 hectares (in two titles). Claremont is situated 17.3km from Timaru and approximately 2.5 hours to Christchurch International Airport and within one hour of internationally renowned skiing, golfing, fishing and hunting.

Located at the end of a long tree lined driveway, the house has been sensitively restored and refurbished by the current owner. The extensive timber doors have been retained as well as individual period fireplaces throughout the home. The wonderful period features have been preserved and enhanced throughout combining them with modern living requirements and creating a perfect atmosphere for family life. The homestead has undergone significant refurbishment whilst still retaining all of its charm and character, and now features ten spacious bedrooms, all with ensuites plus two self-contained separate accommodation units, providing flexibility for guests. Also featured are two spacious living rooms plus a large commercial type kitchen and butlers pantry and dining area with an open fire. In addition to the extensive open fire, the homestead is heated by a heat pump and has new insulation in the roof.

A handsome wooden staircase leads to a large landing that opens to an array of large bedrooms offering views over the gardens with ensuite bathrooms. Winding stairs lead from the rear landing back down to the kitchen and utility area.

Currently Claremont Homestead is listed on AirB&B and used as a wedding venue. Guests enjoy many features: roaring open fires in the reception room, dining at the 16 seater oak dining table, snooker or billiards in the library, tea or breakfast on the sun-drenched veranda.
