If Franz Oberhauser had a weekend retreat, it might just resemble Annandale, a cluster of recherché residences located an hour or so’s drive from Christchurch, New Zealand. Occupying a 4,000-acre swathe of South Island farmland, each of the four properties serves up a different style of living, from the fully-featured, fully-restored 19th century “The Homestead” that comfortably sleeps 12, to Brogue’s favourite, “Seascape”, an ultra-modern retreat for two. Overlooking its own private bay, this chic idyll includes an open-air spa pool and fireplace, and convenient access to its own helipad, of course.
