It is truly a home like no other. THE GRAND SPLENDOUR OF CARRINGTON HOUSE We are privileged to bring Carrington House to the market. The grand homestead was built in the 1870’s and extensively restored over a period of three years by a team of Master Craftsmen, completed in 1993. Rich and rare native timbers are used to great effect throughout, with the centrepiece a grand flowing double width staircase rising from the generous entry hallway. It would simply be impossible to recreate the authentic grandeur of this home today. It is truly a home like no other. The property is rich in history with so much style and grace. Perfectly positioned on approximately 6.9 hectares across three titles with two cottages, stables, multiple outbuildings and six car garaging. The home of some 811m2 features a charming drawing room with a Steinway Concert grand piano holding centre stage. A grand dining room with a beautiful mahogany table able to seat 22, is supported by an adjacent powder room and butler’s pantry. The family room with its French doors leads to a large deck and barbeque area. The large country style kitchen with walk in pantry has a full suite of modern kitchen appliances, and a Rayburn stove provides heating to the home. A formal study with additional entry to a large covered portico completes the ground floor. Upstairs features four large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, each with access to the sweeping verandahs that provide summer shade and views over the magnificent gardens of national significance. The library and upstairs lounge is also home to a full size billiard table and enjoys stunning views to the Tararua Ranges. The several open fireplaces, heat pumps and water radiators provide a range of heating options to ensure a pleasant winter environment. The extensive grounds have many special trees, flowers and shrubs, along with 20,000 daffodils which explode in colour in spring. Carrington Estate is an elegant and gracious property set on a symphony of lawns and gardens framed by mighty specimen trees providing privacy and an exclusive environment. The whole property while maintaining its heritage values has been refurbished to ensure the convenience of modern living has not been neglected. This property is a rare and precious gem with only two families ever to have had the good fortune to call this property their home. This property is only an hour ’s drive from Central Wellington and with a regular commuter train service. Call now to arrange your own personal appointment to view.
