Kotare Estate

Havelock North, Havelock North, Hawke's Bay

This unique 1920’s estate is set in the hills of Havelock North, less than five kilometres from the village.  Beaches and world-class wineries are only a stone’s throw away making this residence an ideal location for your sojourn. With some of the best views in the area towards Napier Hill, Gisborne and Te Mata Peak, this private and tranquil property is a retreat from the outside world.

This character home boasts several indoor and outdoor entertaining areas. Whether you fancy lazing by the pool, having a sundowner at the pétanque court, picking fresh citrus straight from the orchard or simply reading a book under one of the many established trees on the grounds as the pheasant’s roam past, there is something for everyone. In the evening, make use of the outdoor courtyard, light a fire and enjoy a barbecue, then hop into the hot tub and gaze at the stars. Later in the evening try your luck on the oval pool table, which is challenging for even the most skilled pool shark.

There are four bedrooms in this historical family home, three doubles (one with walk in wardrobe and ensuite) and one twin (king singles). There are also two pull out foam mattresses (suitable for children), which can be made up and put in any of the bedrooms if required. The fully equipped kitchen is spacious and has a farmhouse feel. The breakfast bar is the perfect place to sip on a coffee before wandering through to dine on the large balcony at the front of the house, where you look out over the expansive gardens and Hawke’s Bay.
