Your Country Escape in Greytown


Forty Five Wood, an oasis in Greytown in the heart of The Wairarapa.

Built in 1895 this stunning double fronted villa set in mature gardens is the perfect Greytown retreat. Completely private, Forty Five Wood is a warm and elegant hide away just a 10 minute walk to the thriving Greytown village and a 20 minute drive to the world renowned Martinborough wine area.

You are also on the doorstep of the Gladstone wineries so when you are not enjoying the pool at Forty Five Wood in summer or the fabulous Warmington fireplaces in winter, there is much to see and do.

The house has four bedrooms that accommodate 8 guests in total comfort. Each has it's own character and a restful night's sleep and lazy morning start is guaranteed. In addition to the four bedrooms, bunks sleeping four children can easily be placed in the second living area. Doors close to make this a private space,

The essence of the property is entertainment and relaxation. As you will have exclusive use of the grounds and home you can plan long lunches and dinners and take full advantage of the generous living and dining spaces. The furnishings and art have been carefully collected over years by the owners Greg and Sarah.
