About our home

Our home is an Edwardian villa built in 1909 which has been updated and extended to include modern conveniences but retains many period architectural features. We are situated on a quiet quarter acre corner section on a tree lined street near the centre of New Plymouth City. We are 50 metres from Pukekura Park and 10 minutes walk from the Bowl of Brooklands. Central city shopping, the Wind Wand and Coastal Walkway are an easy 20 minute walk away and the North Egmont Visitors Centre just 20 minutes drive on the slopes of beautiful Mt Taranaki.

We also have a holiday home at Lake Tarawera, near Rotorua, Bay of Plenty ("Lakeside holiday house") which may be available instead of our New Plymouth property.

Please note, we have a beehive about six metres from the back door. Also, we have a cat which we take to our vacation home so neither property is completely cat hair free.
