Pro golfer’s luxury Waikato home for sale


One of the North Island’s most opulent properties, 75 Bollard Road, Tamahere – owned by Kiwi professional golfer David Smail and his wife Sheree Smail – is up for sale.

The extraordinary property, marketed by Russell & Angela Thomas of New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty (NZSIR), spans across 4.49 hectares and features an expansive 700sq m home with five/six bedrooms, three bathrooms, an internal swimming pool, a games room with a sports bar, sauna and spa pool. It is expected to fetch well above its current rating valuation of $3.29 million. NZSIR sales associate Russell Thomas says the home on Bollard Road is arguably the finest property to ever come to market in the Waikato region.

“This is an exceptional country home on a grand scale that offers the ultimate in privacy, luxury and seclusion,” he says.

“The overall impression of this home is ‘Great Gatsby’, from the grand Italian marble entrance to the grand formal and informal living spaces, designer kitchen and stately fireplaces. It is nothing short of majestic.”

The stately country home sits behind a gated entrance and the immaculately maintained, established grounds of the property also include a tennis court with spectator’s pavilion, an outdoor chessboard, vegetable gardens and orchards, as well as a charming three-bedroom guest cottage, all located less than a 20-minute drive away from Hamilton.

“The highlights of this property really are the oval perfect for a game of croquet, the indoor swimming pool, sports bar and tennis court,” Thomas adds. “It has been designed for entertaining, offering the choice of both formal and casual dining and living spaces. The owners love having a morning coffee overlooking the oval whilst listening to the bird song or enjoying a glass of wine in the redwood forest in the evening.”

New Zealand Open-winning Smail and his wife Sheree have owned the property for nearly 20 years and are selling up to embark on a new chapter of life now that their children are older.

“This exceptional estate is a wonderful place to raise a family and the vendors are ready to move on,” Thomas says. “We are expecting a lot of interest in this unique country property.”
