This exquisite 670 sq m home is an absolute rural retreat, while located only five minutes to Queenstown's International Airport, 15 minutes to downtown Queenstown and ten minutes to Arrowtown. Elevated over park-like grounds in the heart of Dalefield, it takes in expansive views of The Remarkables mountain range, the back of Queenstown Hill, and around to Coronet Peak. Positioned to face North West, it basks in all day sun while remaining sheltered from the prevailing South Westerly conditions.
The classically inspired home, designed by the renowned Sir Michael Fowler, is solidly constructed creating warmth in winter and staying cool in summer. The house, while elegant, retains a casual charm. This combination allows it to be an easy-living family home with the capability and space for formal hosting or a boutique lodge. It features five sizeable bedrooms, a newly renovated kitchen and plenty of entertaining areas that open to courtyards and an outdoor swimming pool.
The award winning gardens, that are the work of equally renowned landscape architect Ralf Kruger, follow the European theme and incorporate woodland, ponds and formal hedging to produce a stunning setting all year round. Nestled within the mature grounds is also a 106 sq m separate 'barn' that could be used as a self-contained cottage.
This beautifully crafted 10 acres of land, coupled with an enviable residence, makes this an unprecedented property in one of the most sought after locations in the Queenstown region.
