History and elegance is captured perfectly in the Ongaha Homestead and grounds, situated a short 10 minute drive west of Martinborough. This magnificent 500m2 homestead, built in 1914 of native timbers over two storey's and set on 6 hectares (STFS) of land, including sweeping driveway, gardens and pool, is the epitome of the craftsmanship and vision of the early Wairarapa farming families. Formal entrance rooms, dining room and living areas, all with their own working fireplaces are complemented with kitchen, laundry/pantry, office, downstairs bathroom and wine cellar. Up the beautiful native timber stairway are the four double bedrooms (three with balcony access) and one single bedroom. The master bedroom has a huge changing room/ensuite attached that also leads to another upstairs balcony. A family bathroom and ample storage completes the upstairs floorplan. The grounds are stunning, with areas of lawn offset with rose gardens, hidden orchard, mature tree plantings, an asphalt tennis court and kidney shaped pool. A modern four car garage and workshop and original shedding are found close to the homestead. There are also options to purchase two lifestyle blocks situated close by, firstly a 3 bedroom 1950s home set on 2ha's of land and secondly a 3 bedroom cottage on 4ha's. Opportunities such as this are rare - call us now for further information. The Homestead and Cottages are also being marketed, & may sell with the 583ha farm - see nzr.nz/RX2806397
