What would persuade anyone to throw themselves off a bridge, 43 metres above a tumbling torrent of cold water with a cord around their ankles? But work it did. It is remarkable how much Central has achieved in a short time, especially given its shaky beginnings. What united them was a belief that, against the advice of academics and viticulturists, there was a future here.

Dunstan House has 11 guest rooms all of which have been given the name of a person significant to Clyde or to Dunstan House itself. Mrs Jennings was the wife of the local publican and over the years she spent hours sitting up on the balcony watching people as they went about their daily business in Clyde. She was always up on the balcony and over the years became a local celebrity, known to be someone who never missed what went on in Clyde.
The suite, with its own private lounge and separate access onto the balcony is right beside where Mrs Jennings loved to sit. Mr Fountain was a man already well known for his work building with wood and he was commissioned to build a grand feature staircase for Dunstan House. Kauri was brought down from upper Wanaka area and was then milled, carved and fitted by hand on site by Mr Fountain. The result is this staircase which is a true work of art, and the heart of the building.
Mr Wilkinson was a contractor and builder and responsible for overseeing the building Dunstan House. Although his residence was at St Bathans some 63 kilometres away he did not want to stay away from his family so cycled to and from Clyde each day, quite a feat considering the state of roads back then.

On a first date it’s best not to turn up drunk, or claim you are “dangerous”, or fight with police, or feign unconsciousness. But year-old Jeremy Ivan Sutton took an unconventional approach to the situation on November 2, the Dunedin District Court heard yesterday.
The Roxburgh man had met a woman through the dating app Tinder two weeks before the bizarre incident and made the near-two-hour drive from his home in Central Otago to the woman’s house in Mosgiel to meet her for the first time. Sutton, court documents said, “appeared intoxicated” and told the woman he had been in a car crash earlier that day.
The woman – who was at the house with her 9-year-old son – asked the defendant to leave as he consumed more alcohol. As a result officers were dispatched to the house where they were met by the victim and her “hysterical” son.

After moving to Alexandra to pursue opportunities offered by the gold rush era, he purchased the property and built the original stone house that now acts as the cellar door. Oliver and his business partners established a network of water races and were major contributors to the success of gold mining in the area – supplying much needed water to local miners to operate their sluice boxes. While there is a lot of history recorded on the achievements of his water race business, few know that he was also among the first to plant grapes and produce wine – something the region is well-recognised for these days.
Since discovering the old, underground wine cellar at Como Villa Estate, John and Pam Chapman have been slowly restoring the old stone house, in honour of someone who played an important role in Central Otago’s history. Como Villa Estate releases a tribute wine dedicated to the entrepreneurial spirit of Thomas Oliver. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It pays homage to the types of grapes that may have been grown on the property over a years ago.
Proceeds from sales go toward the continued restoration and preservation of the historic stone house and wine cellar. Oliver started a business partnership with two other men from the district and over the next 10 years began constructing and acquiring water races and mining rights in the area. During this time, Oliver sold the London Inn and relocated to a ‘residence area’ on Earnscleugh Road.
Here he built a substantial stone house and named the property Como Villa. A photo of the restored stone house left , contrasted with a drawing of the original four-bedroomed building built by Thomas Oliver in the s. There were four rooms initially, featuring a master bedroom and living room at the front section of the house.
Dating as the buildings do to the Central Otago Gold Rush of the s, you really get a feel for the period. This is thanks to the loving restoration by Andi and David, who have clearly put a lot of effort into successfully drawing out the period features whilst turning this into a luxurious botique hotel. And excitingly lots more is to come, as the restoration continues and the restaurant and wine bar emerge.
