This is an oasis like no other, a property of beauty set in a private, landscaped garden at the end of Wanaka's Blacksmiths Lane, just a short stroll to Lake Wanaka.
This three-bedroom home is set on 2744 sq m in gross.
Oozes class and charm with filtered light, a leafy courtyard off the main living area; the courtyard also accessed by a study and the bedrooms, including the master. An outdoor dining area features here, framed by wisteria.
It's a perfect home for entertaining, with another courtyard off the kitchen/dining/living area, again with outdoor dining and an outdoor fire. Espaliered quince and fruit trees feature in the mature, landscaped gardens, with low buxus hedges for structure.
The garage is separate, with three car spaces, with off-street parking for three vehicles.
The living area is spacious, with doors opening to the garden and courtyard on either side. A Warmington fire throws out excellent heat in the winter months.
The kitchen is a compact but workable space, and neatly recessed so the chef of the house is slightly screened from dinner guests. It's decorated in fashionable dark grey, but there is plenty of light.
Designed by Philip Bidwell, Architectural Design Ltd, the garden and house complement each other perfectly, with the entrance to the home following downward steps and revealing a classic entrance-way framed by a vast gilt mirror, antique furniture and oriental rugs. Enter and be impressed.
