This beautifully preserved historic homestead was sold in 1905 to a Dr. William Irving and upon his departure to England in 1934, Dr. Francis Bennett moved in. For 4 generations Bennetts were born and raised here.
Des & Tracey Ramsay have owned the homestead for over 10 years now and since taking ownership, have added the modern, spacious Motel Unit accommodation at the rear of the Guesthouse, keeping in style and taste with the original features offered by the grand, street facing mansion.
Over the last few years, The Grange has been exceptionally fortunate to come through the earthquakes unscathed, with only some minor cosmetic damage to the homestead and no damage to the Motel Units.
We are fully operational and look forward to having you stay with us here in the heart of Christchurch City.
