The Homestead, as it is affectionately known, is a gorgeous slice of Bulls history and was recently showcased in 'Historic Homes, Churches and Public Buildings of Bulls and Districts' as published by Bulls and Districts Historical Society. Well worth a journey into Bulls Museum in the High Street, Bulls to discover and learn more about this historic early homestead at 15 Daniell Street, Bulls. Another reference is the Alexander Turnbull Library - no. 165.
An important figure, Captain Daniell in 1848 chose land in the Rangitikei and most of the town of Bulls was on Captain Daniell's land, once kinown as Daniell's Bush - a 2500 acre property acquired in 1849 by Daniell.
Interestingly, Captain Daniell's son, Lawrence, first settled on 'Killeymoon' near Bulls in 1855, and the majority of present-day Jersey cattle stock have descended from a trio of Jerseys which arrived on the farm in 1862. 'Tales of the Rangitikei' by Paul Melody.
Today, The Homestead still features a 20 m brick-lined well underneath the kitchen floor that originally had a hand-pump. The kitchen/casual dining is heated by a inbuilt woodburner/cooker on wetback. It's a lovely view from the kitchen bench area out to the inground swimming pool, privately positioned for your enjoyment.
Ambient and warm, you are guided through to a separate dining room with an attached restful and light sunroom facing the roadside. Spacious living room with ample room for large comfy furniture. At the end of the hallway is a bathroom and there are two very large bedrooms downstairs and two double bedrooms upstairs. The main bedroom has an ornamental fireplace and a bay window to catch the penetrating morning sun. The other bathroom is adjacent to the separate laundry area.
