The luxurious, 5-star property is at the southern end of the North Island, and includes a lodge and 13 cottages, set amongst 5500 acres of sheep and cattle farmland.
It includes all the very best of what New Zealand has to offer: food and wine, stunning views, and a large amount of activities, from archery and horse riding, to fishing and mountaineering.
Apparently, the Edwardian house is owned by the American billionaire Bill Foley, chairman of $4 billion mortgage company, Fidelity National Financial, who has spent $200 million investing in distressed wineries. Learn more about him here.
