Offering 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a formal dining room and a massive lounge, this home was equally built to entertain and host large families. As soon as you step through the lead light doors you will be amazed by the high ceilings and breathtaking detail of the plaster molded ceilings. This grandiose and spacious building covers more than 330m2, built by one of NZ's most famous industrial families at the height of their success. Using native timbers and double brick construction throughout the home was made to be low maintenance, as much as it was meant to be impressive. In recent years the property has undergone extensive renovations, including new carpet, painting, ceiling insulation, a central heating system and a commercial kitchen equipped with 2 sinks, 2 dishwashers, a 900mm gas oven and plenty of storage. Designed by one of NZ's most famous landscape designers, the property sits on 6000m2 of landscaped gardens and it's stunning pergola has played host to countless weddings, parties and family events over the decades. In recent times a modern sauna, freshwater hot pool and extensive garden lighting has been added to the property, turning it into a premium overnight destination and recently being rated 7th best Airbnb wedding venue in New Zealand. A modernised sleepout adds a 7th bedroom, whilst a cold store, workshop, tennis court, vegetable garden and double garage round out this incredible property. A property of this calibre offering both a large home and a business opportunity is a rare find, and offers it's new custodian a fabulous chance to write their own chapter. Benhar is just a few minutes from the conveniences of Balclutha, 60 minutes from Dunedin and only 40 minutes to Dunedin airport. Call Hannah Hogg today to organise your viewing - 022 120 0947
