Unique Estate Which Offers Outstanding Luxury and Comfort
Bishopdale Estate is a privately owned estate on the fringe of Nelson city. Originally built for Bishop Suter, the Second Bishop of Nelson in 1925, the grand Victorian homestead and magnificent grounds have been restored and transformed into luxurious accommodation, with an elegant, classical ambiance. With a park-like garden and mature specimen trees, well-groomed lawns and large swimming pool, this property is a rare find in New Zealand. There is a beautifully maintained historic church on the property, which was built as the original Bishop’s personal chapel, perfect for private services or as a wedding venue.
The Bishop’s Suites are at the rear of the Bishopdale homestead on the charming 5.6 acre estate. The suites are luxury stand-alone apartments, generously appointed. Each has a warm and inviting style of its own with rich fabrics, opulent furniture, beautiful Irish linen detail, and a variety of thoughtful touches.
In these generous but cosy suites it is easy to immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of the estate’s relaxed pace. Each one has a gas fire, plasma screen TV, DVD player, radio, ceiling fan and high speed Wi-Fi connection. The parkland grounds, swimming pool and summerhouse create a truly relaxing environment.
This unique and generous property has great potential; as a wonderful home plus superior self-contained accommodation for family, friends and colleagues, or a growing business capable of very good returns from the unrivalled suites and the chapel as a perfect venue for weddings, functions and business meetings.
