This elegant, architecturally-designed home sits nestled on 20.7510 hectares of land and provides country living only 15 minutes from Wanaka.
Step inside and you will be taken aback by the light, space, natural materials used in the home, and the mountain backdrop - it's a great home for entertaining, with a kitchen designed to cater for multiple guests.
The property could be either a great family home - with six bedrooms and six bathrooms - or a lodge, with access to the mighty Clutha River and walking tracks, and opportunities for fishing, kayaking, hiking, hunting and biking.
In its past life, the Mediterranean style beauty was a luxury lodge, accommodating up to 10 guests, all provided with en-suited bathrooms. The home is finished to perfection, with imported Italian tapware and four free-standing French-style baths with views overlooking the rural surrounds. On two levels, the home is of a classic style but with that "homely" feeling.
The quality architecture provides a light, thermally-efficient, solid home build to withstand the Otago environment. A master heating control can isolate the various zones in the house and there are open fires in the living rooms.
The property boasts a grove of hazelnuts, a fruit orchard and olive trees - with scope to further develop the land.
It's a haven and an oasis for those who yearn for privacy and space - yet not far from the fast-growing township of Wanaka with its beautiful lake and opportunities for water sports and fishing. And only another 20-30 minutes to the skifields of Cardrona and Treble Cone. The town boasts iconic cafes and restaurants, boutique shops and weekly markets selling artisan food.
Not to be forgotten are the many opportunities close by to see Central Otago's internationally-renowned vineyards with cellar door wine tasting.
