Escape the madness in the gorgeous mountain surroundings of Glenorchy, 35 mins from Queenstown yet worlds apart. Tucked away at the top of Lake Wakatipu amongst some of the best scenery the South Island has to offer is this brand new, warm and superbly fitted out three bedroom holiday home, complete with underfloor heating, gas fire, fully equipped kitchen, three queen bedrooms, landscaped garden and views of the mountains every way you look. You won't ever want to leave.
156 Sqm modern house built using Structural Insulated Panels, this home is quiet, extremely warm and gorgeous in both winter and summer. Large open plan living, vaulted ceilings, wonderful decor, catches all day sun, and is positioned for the views. Three Queen bedrooms, with the convenience of the Queen bed in the middle bedroom splitting to two skinny singles if required. Polished concrete floors throughout are soft and warm due to the permanent underfloor heating. Frameless glass showers, lovely standalone bath tub, granite bench top, modern conveniences and only a 2 minute walk from the lakefront, shops and cafes. Golf course and tennis courts are at the end of the street, as well as the entrance to the stunning Boardwalk walkway. *Note: excludes use of the garage, as our vehicle is parked inside.
Walk to the lake's edge, enjoy Glenorchy cafes and stunning surroundings, all an easy stroll from the house. Explore the surrounding areas by 4WD (your own rental car required) including the Dart Valley, Rees Valley, Paradise, Kinloch, Greenstone and more. Go jetboating, horseriding, take a helicopter ride, kayak around the lake, hire some bikes or simply walk the stunning Glenorchy Board-walk, only 1 minute from your door. Gateway to many of New Zealand's best hikes, explore the Routebourne, the Dart, the Caples or the Greenstone tracks. Head into Queenstown for more tourist adventures, shopping and nightlife. Book dinner across the lake at the old Kinloch homestead (complete with jetboat pickup). Or simply sit on the patio with a fresh coffee and enjoy the stunning view.
