Tue, 20 Feb 2018 17:33:08 +1300

Tipapa Estate in Greta Valley, North Canterbury is largely hidden from public view thanks to a long driveway and a big stand of mature trees.

The 73-year-old current owner, John Carr, has operated the property just north of Waipara as an events centre since 2004 when he bought the former deer farm of about 200 hectares.

He sold the majority of the farmland, retaining 25ha and the stately timber large house built in 1925 by Herbert Acton-Adams, incorporating native timbers and macrocarpa.
