A rare find indeed. Properties of this nature and location seldom come to market. 9 Orchard Hill is a fabulous family home situated on the edge of, but not part of Millbrook resort. This renowned 7,906 sq m property features a unique park-like setting, with mature specimen trees and orchard. A cleverly designed house that caters for family and entertainers alike, and an enviable, elevated, exclusive and private position amongst Wakatipu's finest real estate.
Walk inside this grand scale home and you are immediately struck with a sense of space and light. Vaulted ceilings open up the living areas, and flow out to the large covered patio and grounds beyond, a very social space for family and friends. There's also a formal living room with open fire for winter parties, and even a snug room for movie nights and the kids.
The garden is something to behold. Elevated and north facing, the abundant fruit trees and mature planting has created a very tranquil and rural setting. There's plenty of space for the kids to roam, and the mountain views culminate with Coronet Peak.
The bedrooms are laid out with privacy in mind. The lavish master suite is set apart, accessed via an impressive corridor, and opens to the morning sun and mountain views to the east. On the west side of the house is a delightful guest suite with fairway views and the sunset. There is also a separate wing with two further large bedrooms and a shared bathroom. As you'd expect from a property of this stature, it is beautifully finished and every inclusion has been considered. The generous butler's pantry keeps things tidy, the underfloor heating and fireplaces keep life cosy in the skiing months, a separate laundry is essential for the busy house of this size, and treble garaging with ample off street parking allows space for the guests and golf carts.
With Millbrook resort at the end of the driveway, you can live the resort lifestyle when it suits you. Membership allows access to the golf and amenities, but this freehold property stands on its own.
