Established in 1869, Speargrass Inn (formerly Speargrass Hotel) once served gold miners who came in their droves to Central Otago in search of gold. Today this very special property with its beautiful historic facade provides options for a discerning buyer to secure a slice of history and unlock its potential.

Currently used as a private residence, Speargrass Inn at Fruitlands is situated amongst attractive gardens with mountain and rural views in close proximity to Alexandra township. This property on 4,512m2 is also consented commercially to operate as a gallery, restaurant-cafe and/or a venue for events with boutique accommodation. Some further refurbishment would improve what is already a stunning family home.

The main building is of heritage value and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a separate kitchen and features an open fire, diesel heating, polished concrete floor, native timbers and a bar in the main living space with French doors out to a large private courtyard.

Other features of the property include the "Whisky Room" - a quintessential Central Otago schist rock hut, separate accommodation unit with three generous sized ensuite rooms and galley kitchenette with laundry in keeping with the heritage character of the main building, a spa area, and ample private parking.

Handy to a wide array of recreational pursuits and services, this property is easily accessible to Queenstown and Dunedin International Airports.

Our vendors have opportunities and priorities elsewhere so 1300 Fruitlands-Roxburgh Road is genuinely offered to the market ready for a new owner to enjoy. This is a once in a lifetime chance to secure an iconic slice of Central Otago History with opportunity to make this your home and income dream, or revert it back to a hospitality venue.
