A UNIQUE PROPERTY WITH BUSINESS POTENTIAL Kenepuru Lodge, at 20 Kenepuru Dr, combines a near-new four-bedroom home with an accommodaton and conference/events centre. Shane and Jade Minnear bought the property six years ago because they were keen to turn the original priests quarters for the neighbouring Bishop Viard College into a venue for weddings, conferences and long-term guest accommodaton. We were looking to invest in Porirua, Mr Minnear says. But with four children and a ffh on the way, we now want to spend more tme with our family. Having got the facility to this stage, weve realised it needs a greater commitment than ours to realise its full potental. The lodge opened in January and already has surpassed expectatons, Mr Minnear says. Built in the 1970s, the 790-square metre lodge has been refurbished and aﬀords 18 guest rooms, conference and meetng facilites, living/dining areas, facilites for the disabled, and a large kitchen. It occupies a tranquil, 4,349sqm site, has parking for 16 cars and is only minutes from the railway staton and Porirua City. The 290sqm, north-facing house the Minnears built in 2010 has a Coloursteel roof and exterior, a car pad and a 90sqm workshop with three-phase power. The front door opens oﬀ a 40sq m deck into a large, living/dining room thats open-plan with the kitchen. It has kwila foorboards and views of the Ranui Heights hills and Porirua Harbour. The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, an electric oven with a fve- burner hob and a rangehood, a dishwasher, an island with a breakfast bar, and bespoke lightng. Oﬀ the living/dining area is a spacious TV room while downstairs are four double-bedrooms, each with a fted wardrobe, and a bathroom tailor-made for family life. Because of its separaton of spaces dual-basin vanity, toilet, bath and shower - - multple family members can use the facilites at the same tme. Also on this level is another room that could be a teenagers retreat. Christne Burton, of RE/MAX Leaders, says Kenepuru Lodge will appeal to buyers who want to capitalise on the Minnears groundwork. As well as oﬀering a wonderful family home, the lodge itself has potental for internatonal students accommodaton, backpackers, a motel, even a rest home.
