Merino Downs is in the heart of New Zealand's high country - the Mackenzie Basin Region halfway between Christchurch and Queenstown on State Highway 8.
Merino Downs is a quality 34 lot lifestyle subdivision built to a standard unrivaled in the Twizel area. Now with completed titles, this desirable subdivision offers large sections ranging from 5,000 sq m to 6,000 sq m along with a parklike 1.6 ha planned common area.
A grand stone entranceway complete with Merino sheep sculpture, post and rail fencing, and extensive planting regime separate this subdivision from the rest. The carefully considered layout offers large private sites and quality design controls ensure an ongoing quality neighbourhood.
This Central South Island location has a rugged, idyllic serenity that is difficult to experience in the more urbanised tourist destinations. Unlike nearby mountain destinations, the quaint, small Kiwi-town feel has survived in the Mackenzie, amidst large-scale high country runs. Under the wide-open skies, family memories are made that will be shared through the generations. This is a place to simply - and fully - enjoy the outdoors.
Surrounded by four large glacial-fed lakes of approximately 77,000 acres, the location offers plenty of water based activities along with superb recreational fly fishing, horse riding & skiing in winter. The region has massive open plains and valleys within the mountains, along with the country's largest watershed of rivers and streams. Merino Downs is the perfect junction for exploring the Mackenzie, Waitaki, and Aoraki Mount Cook areas. It is an outdoor paradise that can lead to both amazing adventure and unsurpassed tranquility.
