The two options for this great waterfront property are, firstly, to build on its successful history as an accommodation and restaurant/bar business or secondly turn it into a brilliant private retreat. Either option involves getting off the mainland and being masters of your own destiny.
The Lodge has been a part of the tourism scene on Great Barrier Island for some years and would be an ideal project for a couple to take charge and build this business. But it could also suit a family or a group of families to purchase and turn it into a wonderful holiday retreat.
The Lodge comprises 10 self-contained accommodation units, owner's accommodation, a large main lodge building with restaurant/bar, lounge, kitchen and shop - plus support buildings - generator shed, laundry, workshop and garaging. The original building which is at the rear of the lodge is now over 100 years old.
Total floor area of the core accommodation buildings and main lodge is 523 sq metres. In addition, the deck area is about 242 sq metres. The service buildings are about 156 sq metres.
Hot water is gas heated and for Lodge power there are 24 solar panels with back-up generators. Water is gravity fed from a local stream to a 25,000 litre tank on the property and there is capacity for water run-off from the roof. There are 3 septic sewage disposal fields, one of which was installed in 2015.
For Sale by Auction (unless sold prior) at 1pm on Wednesday 22nd February 2017 at Sotheby's International Realty, 295 Parnell Road, Parnell, Auckland.
