This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

First established over 100 years ago, Sprott House offers a range of residential facilities and aged care.

The retirement and rest home complex stands in just over 3/4 of a hectare, surrounded by established trees and mature gardens including roses, lavender and many other varieties of flowers as well as deciduous and evergreen trees. It overlooks the valley with glimpses of the harbour.

It is ideally located in the residential heart of Karori in Wellington.

Just a few minutes from Marsden Village, as well as the Karori Mall and 10 minutes from the centre of the city, it is well situated for shopping and is within walking distance from nearby cafes.

Sprott House offers a warm, caring and secure environment for residents and provides a home away from home when total independence is no longer an option and aged care is needed.

We believe that people should remain as independent as possible and have developed our facilities based on this philosophy.
We have now completed our second hospital wing of premium bedrooms that have beautiful en suite facilities .
