Colliers is privileged and delighted to bring Totara Estate Homestead to the market for the first time in 50 years. This historic homestead presents an exceptional opportunity to secure a prestigious country estate with one of the finest period houses to be found in the beautiful South Island.
Set amongst an impressive variety of 100 year old trees on 5.6123 hectares (subject to survey), this imposing Oamaru Stone homestead will not fail to impress. Constructed in 1868, the homestead and its ancillary stone buildings have been lovingly restored and maintained in keeping with its Victorian period. Features include ornate plaster ceilings and cornices, english period wall paper, luxurious heavy drapes, Baltic pine joinery and timber and tile flooring amongst its 18 rooms. The house has a Category 2 Heritage NZ status and is noted as having historic, architectural, aesthetic and archaeological significance.
This is truly something special - our vendors have made the reluctant decision to pass the baton on and they hope that the next custodian will appreciate the space and serenity that they have enjoyed over the past 50 years.
