About this listing
A stately home, a rural retreat, a spectacular and very popular function centre, a productive farm area with a full range of operating facilities. This is just some of what is on offer at Tipapa.

Located 75 km north of Christchurch and its international airport and gateway to the South Island, access to the property is a straightforward 75 minute easy drive along State Highway 1. Within a 15 minute drive, award-winning wineries and vineyard restaurants are available, as well as access to the plentiful South Island's east coast fishing and diving resources. The alpine village of Hanmer and all it offers is an hour's drive via State Highway 7.

The range of buildings found on this property is nothing short of spectacular. The main building comprises a 690m² magnificent spacious homestead. Originally built in 1928, there was a substantial and meticulous refurbishment, commenced in 2004 and completed in 2005.

The ground floor has an impressive and expansive entrance foyer, formal dining room, living room, commercial size and very well appointed kitchen, library or meeting room, and study. The first floor comprises five generous bedrooms, all with ensuites and fireplaces.

This building is situated in an expansive, tranquil garden, which includes an attractive, large, heated inground swimming pool.

A short distance away, the original woolshed has been partially converted to result in an impressive, attractive and sought after function centre, consented and capable of catering for 150 guests. It has a commercial kitchen and all the furniture needed for successful function activities, the majority of which are weddings. Corporate events, dinners, and a range of other functions have been successfully held in this venue. The building oozes character. It was originally built in 1890.

Nearby is a 210m² multi-purpose building consisting of a small studio cottage comprising two rooms plus bathroom, along with its own garden, boardroom and workshop. Close by is a building platform for an additional dwelling, or accommodation units, within easy connection to all services.

Other buildings include a four bay implement shed and large hay barn. There is an operational four stand woolshed, and incorporated are sheep, cattle and deer handling facilities, along with stables and tack room.

The property comprises 24.4 hectares in total, of which some 20.4 hectares are in pasture, all deer fenced. The balance is made up of plantings, garden and excess. There is a substantial chattels list.

The homestead and woolshed facility were "highly commended" in the 2018 Canterbury Heritage Awards. The homestead was described as having had "extensive and meticulous refurbishment to an extremely high standard".

This unique property presents so many options. You'll be able to achieve exactly what you want to do in such a beautiful and secluded location. If a commercial venture is what you're after, the function facility has serious potential. The surface has only been scratched. Check out the opportunities.
