It's Time To Hand On This Havelock Haven
Guardians of a legacy, that's how the current owners describe themselves. Established in 1954 the original owner travelled back to the UK to source feature trees that now sit majestically with native plantings and hedged gardens. Located opposite the historic Blackball sawmill site, this is a lush and private haven, lovingly maintained. Additional outbuildings such as an NZR bus stop (converted to woodshed) and cottage inspired rumpus room add to the quirkiness, while the three-bay shed adds practicality. Around every turn there's something of interest including a wisteria covered arbor, a woodland dell, a fountain and operational carriage light. The homestead, designed in the manner of a Heathcote Helmore building retains original features, is spacious, flooded with sunlight and has impressive views over the gardens and towards the estuary. It's a wonderful place to rest your head, or perhaps the head of a weary traveller.
Looming hills to the rear are planted in kanuka and have proved the perfect spot to run the pet sheep. Let's be honest, you know a property such as this is going to be a labour of love for the green-fingered or hired help, but the result is magical.
