Boulcott is situated north-east of Central Hutt on the valley floor.
Boulcott has blossomed into a neighbourhood of predominantly high quality homes, some of which back on to Boulcott Golf Course, Hutt Golf Club and numerous recreation areas in the suburb. Most houses are quality wooden family homes and many have been restored with character interior and modern conveniences. Some smaller sections also have a mixture of 2 bedroom units and newer townhouses.
In 1944, Boulcott became the home of the Hutt Hospital. This was significant for not only providing a medical service, but also as an indicator of Hutt City’s rapid growth to city status. Today, Boulcott is the hub for all your medical needs – as well as the Hutt Hospital, there is also Boulcott Hospital with a world leading practice and the most contemporary medical facilities in the region for more specialised medical treatments. Boulcott enjoys its own local shops including a dairy, bakery, its own hairdressing salon, many takeaway stores including Pepe’s Pizzas, Burger Winsconsin to name a few, personal business’s and much more. Terry Dooley, one of our agents here at Professionals, Hutt City Limited is a keen golfer and highly recommends Boulcott’s Heritage Golf Club which he claims to be “one of the best golf courses in the Hutt City”.
Boulcott was an area originally occupied by the Ngati Rangatahi, and when the Europeans arrived the land was soon contested by both parties. When land-buying procedures failed, military measures were used to ensure that settlers were placed on the land.
