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.

WARNING CAT AND DOG OWNERS CASTOR BAY

Diane from Murrays Bay

Sorry to have to write this post but it might save a precious pet's life. Please take extra care with your dogs and cats in Castor Bay. It very, very sad. A missing cat was found dead near a poison bait station in Castor Bay. This is a horrible death that no pet should ever have endure. I blame Auckland Council for this. I am part of group that has been asking Auckland Council to make it safe for our pets and small children and we get the most rubbish responses from them.

This year when you vote think of your pets. Paw Justice are interviewing all perspective Mayors that have agreed to be interviewed and asking specific questions around our pets.They are streaming those interviews on Facebook over the weekend.
