Wairarapa - 4 Admiral Road, Gladstone
Dream of escaping to the country? Love entertaining, cooking and gardening? Well this could be what you are looking for. The Summit Lodge was purpose built as a guest lodge and features a guest wing with 3 ensuite bedrooms and an enormous lounge. All rooms have heat pumps and there is an open fire in the lounge. Ranchsliders lead out to private patios and the sheltered courtyard. The owners wing features a master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe as well as spare bedroom, also with ensuite and lounge. Again, ranchsliders from all rooms lead to a sheltered deck. The kitchen dining is at the heart of the house and ensures guests are included in the whole cooking/dining experience. Two Smeg ovens, 6 burner gas top, butlers sink, walk-in pantry and there is also an open fire here for the cooler evenings (and heat pump) as well as large bi-fold doors that open to the courtyard for summer el-fresco dining. Outside are extensive gardens, planted for easy care - lots of natives, fruit trees and of course, a veggie patch, paddocks currently used for alpacas and chicken run. Within easy distance of local wineries and the award winning Gladstone Inn, country location but close enough to Masterton, Carterton and Greytown this property ticks lots of boxes! All the hard work has been done in setting up this lifestyle business with many TripAdvisor reviews, the website, the 5 star rating and with lots of potential for the next custodians to develop the business further!
