Peppertree Luxury Accommodation FOR SALE!

New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty

This boutique hotel offers a new owner the opportunity to combine a healthy and diverse lifestyle with an interesting and profitable business which naturally scales down during winter, allowing for a holiday.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort. In the heart of the lodge is a spacious, recently renovated farmhouse kitchen enjoying garden and orchard views. A large woodburner with wetback heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring year-round warmth.

Organically managed, the four-hectare property provides the ability to live from the land with honey, fruit trees, berry patches, vegetable gardens, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle and horses. The small Chardonnay vineyard with a careful selection of clones produces a succulent house wine thoroughly enjoyed by guests from all around the world.

A range of useful ancillary sheds and buildings offers space for projects, hobbies, storage and accommodation for staff. Other facilities on the property include a petanque court, croquet lawn and small gymnasium overlooking the swimming pool.

This extraordinarily diverse and unique lifestyle is ideally located on State Highway One, less than a five-minute drive from central Blenheim and 15 minutes from numerous winery cellar doors, restaurants and the airport.

Two lucky Lotto tickets are worth more than $19 million each after the bumper $38 million Powerball jackpot was struck tonight.

Brian from New Lynn

Two players will each bank $19,142,857.
The locations of where the winning tickets were sold will be released shortly. One person won Division 2, winning $59,322. And the winning numbers were: 5, 7, 14, 17, 22, 29. The bonus ball was 9 and the Powerball was 2.
Are you a winner? The $38m Powerball jackpot would have been the second-equal largest payout of Lotto NZ history if won by a single ticket, after two ticket holders split the same figure in 2017. Meanwhile, the Dairy Flat Food Mart & Liquor store in Albany, which sold the winning $44m ticket in 2016, had been flat out recently.
A spokesman for the business told yesterday it had been "absolutely crazy" with hopeful punters buying tickets for the mammoth draws. "On Sunday we were busy, busier than normal," he said. "Yesterday we were quite busy and today from the morning we've been quite busy." It was expected that over 1.7 million tickets had been sold for tonight's draw. There have been 12 Powerball winning tickets this year, the largest pocketed by a Taranaki woman, who struck big in a $22.3m jackpot in January and spent a month holidaying in Europe with family afterwards. Next, she's heading to Japan for the Rugby World Cup semis and final - hopefully, played and won by the All Blacks. "It's been a bit of a whirlwind year — a complete rollercoaster of emotions. Even now, I still can't quite believe it happened," the woman said. "I've got my whole life ahead of me, so I want to make sure that whatever I do next is something that love and enjoy." More than 1.7 million tickets were expected to be sold for a chance to claim Wednesday night's draw, Lotto NZ said. Around 1.6m ticket sales for Saturday's unclaimed $32m draw, the equivalent of each Aucklander buying one ticket. Financial advisers have been warning potential winners to avoid putting all their eggs in one basket or splurging all their new-found cash if they win big. The advice has been - to get advice before living it up large. "It's pretty cliche that people who come into money end up broke, so getting advice from qualified people is the first step," Matt Henry, head of wealth management research at Forsyth Barr, told. "What you're looking for is a prudent, sensible, diversified portfolio that's going to stand you in good stead over a long period of time." Lotto NZ offers an advice booklet to winners with tips about how to handle their winnings wisely. All Powerball winners were invited to visit Lotto NZ's Auckland office to claim their prize, spokeswoman Kristen Robinson said. There, winners were given tips, tricks and advice from Lotto NZ about adjusting to life as a Powerball winner. They would also receive a copy of Lotto NZ's winner's book, filled with things to think about over the coming days, weeks and months.
