When our clients made the decision to move from Remuera out to Karaka, they had their heart set on a beautiful stable complex over looking a fabulous arena.

There was an existing small barn already on the site that the owners wanted to keep in place as an ancillary building to support the main complex and offer storage for the more messy and mundane farm equipment. The project took just over twelve months to complete the arena, stable complex, truck shed and landscaping.

The stable complex is appointed with;

  • 3 Point entry/exit concrete breezeway
  • 4 Large stables fully enclosed to 2.4m high, with sliding doors for equine entry and exit, sliding shutters for ventilation and light, complete with auto waterers, hay feeders and rubber stable comfort floors for ease of cleaning.
  • Dedicated wash bay with recessed LED lighting, equine solarium, 2 x hot/cold water hosing points, non slip equine safety flooring, and storage for shampoo, bottles, sponges etc
  • Feed room with built in feed bins, shelving for storage and sink
  • Rug room with built in cabinetry for storage of rugs, washing machine and dryer
  • Tack room with custom made saddle and bridle hanging, cubby units for keeping all the equine essentials tidy, full length workbench with sink, drawers and further storage
  •  Access in to the covered truck bay
  • Access to the 65x30 Arena with free draining base, sand & fiber riding surface and overhead irrigation.
  • Down stairs WC

The first floor incorporates a large open games room with kitchenette – opening out on timber deck with a gorgeous view over the arena, 2 very generous rooms for home gym equipment and office space, fully appointed bathroom and separate toilet, store cupboard and access into the roof space.

The landscaping was carefully thought out to optimise drainage and control of surface water.

“Having kept our horses at a variety of agistment properties over the years we loved the quality of Harrison Lane barns. When it came time to build our own stables and arena we didn’t look any further than Harrison Lane.

Watching the whole project come together we really got to appreciate the quality of the build, the workmanship as well their attention to detail. Harrison Lane managed the whole project including earth works, arena, landscaping and the design and build of the barn which made it an effortless process.

Laura, Scott and the team have been great to deal with and have a high level of skill and knowledge no matter what they are undertaking. It was a collaborative design process and Harrison Lane were very accommodating of our custom design requests.

We are very happy with the equestrian complex they have created for us. The barn is fabulous to work in, it’s spacious, functional and beautiful"
