Lacewood is located at the elegant Tuhitarata Estate in South Wairarapa, in a wide valley fringed by mountains to the west and rugged coastlines to the south and east. The South Wairarapa is a place of big skies, beautiful rural scenery, historic towns full of colonial character, and lakes and waterways.
The 23 acre private estate lies between two magnificent stands of 300 year old native lowland bush with soaring kahikatea. The 1860s homestead, Tuhitarata, is set in a park-like setting of old English trees and formal gardens. Along with the elegant homestead, the grounds retain a number of out-buildings of significant historic interest, including charming cottages and the beautifully restored barn.
