Puketotara is an international quality country lifestyle property bordering the stunning Puketotara Stream and perfectly positioned on 11.8225 hectares (29 acres) of fertile land on the outskirts of Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands. Privacy, tranquility, native flora, wetlands and birdlife are beautifully combined with classic architecture, a private 9 hole golf course, a boutique vineyard, mature deciduous trees, a productive orchard and olive grove and your own hangar should you or your friends wish to arrive by helicopter.

Move in and simply enjoy Puketotara as a superb family home, operate it as a boutique luxury retreat or wellness centre, develop the property further as an organic or biodynamic farm, expanded vineyard with winery, or exceptional equestrian property.

The freehold land, 5-bedroom home, 2-bedroom self-contained cottage, riverside retreat, utility buildings, site infrastructure, equipment, fixtures, furniture and furnishings are offered for sale.

PRICE By negotiation.


Entertain family & friends on your private 9 hole golf course designed by Will Bowden.


The cedar weatherboard and plaster residence has five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a guest bathroom, a huge open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area with ceilings featuring exposed beams and timber sarking, a scullery, spacious laundry, internal double car garaging and expansive verandahs. The master bedroom wing is located to the west and there are four en-suite bedrooms located in a separate wing east of the main living area. The house opens to the north through large bi-fold doors onto extensive timber deck areas with wood-fired pizza oven and spa pool — with total privacy and stunning views.


In addition to the main residence there is a charming two bedroom cedar self-contained cottage situated privately amongst the trees. Beside the Puketotara Stream there is an off-grid self-contained retreat and BBQ area (doubling as the 19th hole). Other buildings include a huge 3-bay shed with separate studio and bathroom, a 2-bay equipment and storage shed, plus a roomy hangar in which to park your helicopter and your car collection.


Feed your body and mind and your family or friends, with some of nature’s finest treasures. Puketotara offers a wonderful opportunity to create a beautiful bio-dynamic or organic small farm — a sustainable vineyard, fruit orchards, olive groves, vegetable and herb gardens producing organic food, and perhaps some house cows for home-made fresh cheeses and milk. You can fly-fish the Puketotara Stream for Rainbow Trout, net whitebait and freshwater crayfish and your Syrah, Chambourcin and Dolcetto grapes are processed just two minutes away at Marsden Estate into your own house wine.

An incomparable opportunity

There are few, if any, properties that have all of the attributes Puketotara offers. The property presents a rare opportunity to acquire a quality of lifestyle that would be difficult to find anywhere else in the world. Privacy, tranquility, space, expansive living accommodation and entertainment options for family and friends, a pure environment and connection with nature.

Puketotara would suit property owners with a wide variety of personal and other objectives. Those looking for an exceptional family home and lifestyle, those seeking a private sanctuary to balance a busy life, someone seeking an opportunity to develop a year-round boutique luxury lodge or health spa operation, an owner with a vision to create a biodynamic farm, vineyard and boutique winery, or stunning equestrian property…or an owner thinking about forming a syndicate to share Puketotara’s charms with others.
