Perched on a sloping hillside overlooking Lake Rotorua, this 30 year old sprawling Lockwood mansion with its landscaped gardens and silver dappled water peeping through mature tree lined shores, delivers a sensory delight.
A gently undulating drive takes you on a journey from the top of the hill, all the while providing glimpses through the intricate gardens until you arrive at the magnificent stone walled courtyard. The double volume entrance continues the stonework through, creating a seamless flow from outdoors in.
These philanthropic home owners love entertaining and are avid collectors of artwork. The Lockwood interior walls form the perfect backdrop for their many and varied show pieces. The juxtaposition of the stone, timber, marble floors and intricate roof detailing, effortlessly captures the feeling of being a stately yet welcoming home.
This 600 m2 home has evolved over time, with extensions to the wings sensitively designed to blend with the original concept. High gabled windows, steeply raking ceilings and laminated beams provide structural focal points of interest in every room.
There is a definite sense of history and Lockwood design heritage in this iconic grand dame
