Owners retiring after 25 years.
This unique property on 2ha. of landscaped gardens, manicured lawns and native bush offers privacy and tranquillity.
The property has its own pure spring water fed from a romantic glow worm grotto where hundreds of glow worms light up the bush surrounding a flowing waterfall.
Centred in the garden is a 350 years old twin Kauri tree, close to a water lily pond and a blissful outdoor wellness corner showcasing a double slipper claw foot bath tub and outdoor Scandinavian sauna.
The opposite side of the gardens contain an organic vegetable garden, a mature orchard with a variety of fruit trees and an art studio to add to the appeal.
The 380m2 dwelling on two levels consists of the owners living quarters, two self- contained guest suites, a wine cellar, semi-commercial kitchen with cool store, walk in larder, and a separate dining room for guests to enjoy breakfast.
Bushlands Lodge has been successfully and profitably managed to suit the owners lifestyle while continuously up-grading and managing the Lodge. It is now time for them to move on and enjoy their new Grandchild.
This property offers many options for new owners to either expand the business or create their own vision of a country retreat. Settlement is preferred at the end of March 2020 due to ongoing bookings and the present owners are willing to pass on their contacts and experience to any future purchaser's.
