At Hulbert House, you are invited to explore history, modern luxury and natural beauty in an unforgettable experience.
Each of its stunning rooms has its own independent character and is named after a prominent individual in the Homesteads history; from the Boult Suite named after Philip Burbage Boult who was granted the land in 1876 to the Firth Room named after Horatio Nelson Firth, whose family lived here between 1889 and 1901 at which point Firth was sent to prison for embezzlement.
Hulbert House has a New Zealand Historic Places covenant protecting its historical significance for future generations.
The new interior design by Neil McLachlan preserves the period details with the use of splendid English wallpapers and custom milled carpet, large scale French antiques, and chandeliers. A newly constructed 'Palm House' in what was the rear courtyard of the dwelling incorporates the original service wing and features custom made tiles which adorn a full height chimney breast. Close attention to detail has resulted in a truly extraordinary interior.
