Event Details

One of New Zealand’s oldest stately homes is up for sale in Central Hawke’s Bay, kicking off a search for new custodians.

The 164-year-old Chapelwick coastal estate has been placed for sale by Property Brokers Hawke’s Bay.

Originally, the homestead of Porangahau Station, it was established by the Hunter family in 1854 but for the past four years it’s been owned by Deborah Beldham, along with her sister and brother-in-law, Sandra and Pat McCleary.

Ms Beldham said personal reasons meant the family, originally from the Kapiti Coast, were now unable to continue their commitment to a piece of New Zealand’s history.
