Luxurious waterfront lifestyle
Saint Leonard's Lodge, 1 Tui Street
St Leonard's Lodge presents a unique dual home and income opportunity. This spectacular waterfront setting offers a breathtaking panorama of the Otago Harbour and Peninsula.
The original homestead, Aorangi, was built circa 1907, is one of New Zealand's finest historic homes, and is deservingly protected by the Historic Places Trust. This much admired home has been lovingly restored and extensively renovated by its current owners to the highest standards and offers boutique, luxury accommodation, and a beautiful family residence.
Centrally heated by a ducted heatpump system, modern elements combine seamlessly without detracting from the glorious period features of this magnificent home.
Alongside Aorangi sits a second home, Tui House, that was constructed by the owners in 2004 to reside in while they extensively improved Aorangi. Light and fresh, this home offers modern accommodation consisting of three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, with a central kitchen and living room.
Whether you are seeking a stunning waterfront home or a luxury stay business, this situation is highly appealing and offers flexibility to meet your family's requirements.
There are a number of possible options around the sale that can be negotiated, including:
The property can be subdivided, being a total land area of 4,707sqm (more or less) of freehold land, being Lot 8 and Part Lot 5, 6, 7. The simplest subdivision would be to have the new boundary between the two houses, so Lot 8 and Part Lot 7 (approx. 2,297sqm) becomes the land for the Lodge "Aorangi" and Part Lot 6 and 5 (approx. 2,420sqm) become the land for "Tui House".
Refer to the Certificate of Title and the aerial photo on council rates information details below, and the video has great aerial views.
This would be subject to survey, approval, and new titles being issued, a process that takes some months, but the sale can be subject to this. This may be an attractive option for someone looking to purchase the Lodge but not wanting the second home.
The owners are registered for Goods & Services Tax, being a GST registered company. If you purchase and are GST registered, this means that you pay the purchase price plus GST (which you then claim back) and the owners receive this and pay GST on the sale.
If you are not GST registered and don't intend to register for GST, you may offer the purchase price inclusive of GST. This may be an attractive option for someone purchasing the Lodge but not intending to run it as a business. Purchasers should seek advice from their lawyer and/or accountant before making an offer. Contact me if you wish to discuss these or any other options.
