- About this property
Boutique AccomodationProperty ID GDL21656Offers over $2,050,000m.
The current owners, Kevin and Lois, have cherished their time as the custodians of Taiparoro house. For the past 25 years they have enjoyed having their family grow in this special property. Some two years ago they renovated the homestead and guest rooms throughout and at the start of the last financial year opened for business this boutique bed and breakfast a wing of the homestead.
Since starting the business they have grown turnover from $0 to a staggering $112,000 year to date including GST. The running of the business is a lifestyle choice that they love. Once the guests have gone in the morning they are free to spend time with loved ones and enjoy their daily walk up the mount and a walk into the city for a coffee.
The potential here is huge as the turnover has grown largely by word of mouth and the stellar ratings they receive on sites such as Trivago and Booking.com. At only a 43% occupancy rate over the past year and a half there is so much scope for someone to grow the business - there is so much opportunity!
Taiparoro House was built in 1882 by Tauranga Mayor J.C. Adams as his homestead and the character of the home has been retained to this day. Protected under the historic places trust with a category 2 grading, the home over the years has been enhanced with the additions carefully retaining its colonial character while applying modern conveniences.
The sprawling home consists of seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, multiple living spaces and the double garage all on its own freehold 1135m2 section.
The location is superb. Within an easy walk to the central city, harbours edge and all levels of schooling makes this an easy home to live in and an attractive location for guests to visit.
This is a beautiful character home, with many stories to tell - and deserving of owners with an appreciation of history and the desire to be part of it.
