Robertson House

Location

This property is located 9.8 kilometres from Rotorua Airport. It is only 2 minutes drive or 10 minutes on foot from the city centre.

This historic home was built by one of Rotorua's forefathers in 1905 and has been painstakingly renovated so that it retains both its colonial charm and significance as a good example of the Victorian Bay Villa. The house has most of the original features of this style, including Union Jack balustrades and intricate fretwork decorations around the verandah posts, a hood and more fretwork over the bay windows, a finial on the gable front, brackets under the eaves and two tall corbelled brick chimneys. Relax in a warm comfortable atmosphere, or take time out on the verandah and enjoy the old English cottage garden resplendent with colour and fragrance, citrus trees and grape vines.
