- Professional standard putting green and challenging nine hole golf course
- Previously run as a lodge, Paratiho is ready with six guest suites
- One of New Zealand's best farms, presently farming cattle, sheep and deer
Unquestionably ranked amongst New Zealand's finest farming estates, with magnificent accommodations and 770 hectares (2000 acres) of top quality farmland. The main residence was built around 2000 and was originally operated as a luxury lodge which gained international acclaim as one of only three "Relais Chateau" properties within New Zealand. It was acquired by the existing owners in 2009 and since then has been occupied as a private residence. The property offers complete privacy, substantial and well appointed accommodation including six beautiful guest suites, a spa, a gymnasium with sauna, a house manager's apartment, offices and garaging for six vehicles. The 30 acres of breathtaking grounds include fine lawns, many specimen trees, four lakes, a croquet lawn, a professional standard putting green, swimming pool, tennis court, a heli-pad and an area of mature native bush. The present owners have added a challenging nine hole golf course. The farm, which has excellent buildings and stock handling facilities away from the main residence, is located in an idyllic, north- facing valley with a good balance of irrigated flats and gently rolling hills, making it ideal for breeding and finishing livestock with some cropping. The property comfortably winters over 7,500 stock units, made up of sheep, cattle and deer. The property enjoys plentiful supplies of water from two large dams and numerous smaller reservoirs, a Government group supply, and various bore holes and wells. Secluded but not isolated, this truly unique property is only 12 minutes drive from Motueka township and Nelson City airport is about 40 minutes away. The present owners have maintained the lodge amenities and the purchaser will have the option of retaining the property as a private residence or re-establishing it as one of New Zealand's top international resorts.
