Luxury surrounded by nature

575A Whirinaki Road, Galatea, Whakatane


Looking for a luxury get-away or business opportunity with world-class hunting and fishing right on your doorstep? This lodge-quality home offers unexpected elegance, flanked by the mighty Te Urewera national park to the east, and looking out over the Whirinaki river and Galatea plains to Mt Putauaki on the horizon. The homestead was designed with a hunting lodge in mind and no expense has been spared. With plaster over brick and cedar cladding, French Oak wideboard and Travertine tile flooring, joinery in solid American White Oak timber, wine cellar, Purple Heart hardwood decking, copper downpipes/guttering, and underfloor heating as just a few of its features, this home provides both comfort and luxury.

It has an indomitable presence, positioned to take advantage of the view to the north and the movement of animals along the eastern side where the property adjoins the bush-clad conservation land. The elusive Rusa deer are commonly seen here, with red deer and wild pigs also hunted along this boundary. A duck pond offers its own resident ducks, while pheasants, quail and peacocks all reside on the farm. Whirinaki River is renowned as a great trout fishery, with other famous fishing options including the Rangitaiki River, Horomanga River & Lake Aniwhenua. Local 'Heli-Resources Ltd' provides helicopter services for hunters to Te Urewera, the Whirinaki River headwaters, and Te Ika Whenua Ranges.
