A home with history in a secluded setting on the rural edge of Hawera is what you will find at 3 Puawai Street, one of South Taranaki’s premier properties recognised as a New Zealand Garden of Significance.

The property spans over approximately 10 Acres and contains the 143 year old two storey six bedroom five bathroom villa subsequently called Tairoa Lodge. To compliment the villa, there are also two other buildings on the property. A former Gospel Church almost as old as the villa was moved onto the property in 2010 and has since been renovated to incorporate a bar and commercial kitchen together with a character cottage not much younger that was moved onto the grounds in 2005. The cottage contains two bedrooms together with a covered wrap around deck area providing extra space. The cottage and main lodge residence offer Accommodation options, while the cottage and church buildings can accommodate gatherings from small conferences to large weddings, anniversaries and reunions. A wide lawn between the church and cottage provides the option for a large marquee to allow larger weddings and gatherings in the extra space.

With all buildings painted in the same colour as the villa, it provides a visual connection to each other and although all are an easy stroll away from each other, the gardens provide an element of separation. It really is a home with options.

All viewings are by Appointment Only.
