"Marama Lodge" - Elegance of a Bygone Era

Marama Lodge is an exceptionally beautiful and grand property, with an elegance of a bygone era.

Situated on an elevated and sunny position, it is surrounded by a splendid garden of mature trees and shrubs, some planted last century. Stone Gabon walls and terraces, and a delightful Victorian styled kitchen garden, producing fruit vegetables and herbs.

Built in 1875 during the rich and prosperous days of the Otago Gold Rush, the original owner was a prospector of the good fortune who then became the merchant and shopkeeper in Lawrence. As a statement of his own success, Marama was designed and built with the finest quality materials.

Rich in history, Marama Lodge has now been extensively renovated by the current owners, having a light, bright contemporary style, whilst preserving the authentic Victorian character and charm.

Not only a wonderful home, but the opportunity to generate income offering accommodation to visitors to the region or cyclists on the 'Otago Gold Trail' which runs along the front of the property. Would also be a wonderful to accommodate functions and activities, weddings, vintage classic car events exhibitions as have been enjoyed here in the past.
