Full description:

This elegant, historic homestead (1917) in its park-like grounds, has been completely renovated and restored to fully meet the requirements of contemporary living.

Architecturally-designed in the Arts and Craft style fashionable in English country houses at the time, this is the homestead for the original St Helens Station - which at one stage was close to 250,000 acres. Today, the two storey limestone homestead is set on 20 hectares, surrounded by renovated historic gardens, with large lawns, many established specimen trees, an old orchard and a pond system; the rest is in pasture. It is situated in the foothills of the Southern Alps, close to the vibrant tourist destination of Hanmer Springs village, yet is only an hour and a half drive from Christchurch City.

St Helens is a home of grand proportions (750sqm), with four formal or casual living areas, plus modern kitchen/dining, library, conservatory, large entrance hall, playroom and extensive covered veranda. In addition are six large bedrooms (the master especially grand) and an office or seventh bedroom, four luxurious modern bathrooms (six toilets) and various original servants' rooms.

The nearby modern cottage on the property (included and separately titled) is ideal for staff or income.

The interior and exterior of the homestead have recently been completely renovated and restored, with infinite attention to detail. Improvements include a fully automated commercial grade heating and cooling system, insulation, a home automation system, a full rewire, replumb and re-roof, a high-pressure water system, insertion of a structural steel cage, bespoke joinery in many rooms and luxury European appliances. Historic features have been preserved and restored including feature open fireplaces, native rimu woodwork (panelling, doors, floors and cabinetry), and stone-mullioned steel-framed windows.
