Nestled amongst established trees featuring beautiful gardens and walkways, the mighty Totara rises up to boldly complement the 1907 gracious and most lovingly restored villa. The wise words of preservation, conservation and restoration are what the current owners hope will be treasured by the next custodians. Abundant bird life so beautifully captures the sounds of nature.
One can only imagine the high-rise Victorian sponge cake oozing lashings of fresh homemade raspberry jam layered with whipped cream and partnered with England's fine bone china for a glorious self-indulgent afternoon tea on the front veranda; only one of the popular social gatherings hosted by Tarata House.
A streak of clever inventiveness in the entrance hall draws your eye to the double made-to-measure French doors of a time when Napoleon invaded Egypt in 1798. Striking French themes are evident throughout the gorgeously grand and captivating home. Allow the dazzling gigantic chandeliers to impress and excite you as you inquisitively mosey from room to room to discover even more beautiful pleasures. What is evident are the opulent fixtures and fittings and considerable thought creating and effecting tasteful scenes everywhere.
The extremely workable tiled floor kitchen has a walk-in pantry in the utility room which is also accessed via the mud room with exit door to the outside. Bathrooms are incredibly gorgeous with tiled floors, equisite wall decorations and wow-factor handbasins.
Immaculately presented with exceptional indoor/outdoor flow having the main bedroom accessing the front veranda. The formal lounge or formal dining room has doors to the front veranda so guests can happily wander inside and out.
Tranquilly hidden-away, self-contained Tarata Cottage has been the peaceful destination of many New Zealand and overseas guests who simply want to get-away from it all. The cottage features open plan living, a separate King-size bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom facilities.
