Welcome to a world you might never have heard of; yet somewhere you will never forget. This land will seep into your soul and transport you to places you could only dream existed. A world away from everywhere; secluded within idyllic Bay of Plenty countryside, this is a rare insight into nature. Comprising of two separate titles, this is an estate reserved for the elite; a position of privilege; and sanctuary for those who understand how to be at one with nature.
Dotted amid the trees are six impressive dwellings, masterminded in characteristic Basque fashion. Associated with traditional farmhouses in Northern Spain and South-western France, these typify the half-stone, half-heavy timber architecture that distinguishes the Basque technique.
It took the vision of a European family to create Equine Estate; where pheasants fly and fallow deer roam amid the forest; where bees hum in the meadows and birdsong is a soundtrack for the serenity. The only hint as to its existence is a simple sign at the roadside in this rural triangle between Rotorua, Tauranga and Whakatane: 'Equine Sporting Claybirds'. Beneath it are the words 'ende der wel'.
Welcome to the end of the world and prepare for the unforgettable. Claybirds are merely the entree.
