Perfectly positioned between The Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu, this four-bedroom home has been designed with extended family living in mind. The 240sqm dwelling includes a one-bedroom self-contained flat encompassing everything needed to cater to independent young adults, grandparents, or for use as Airbnb accommodation. The contemporary interior has been impeccably finished with premium fixtures and fittings throughout. The modern kitchen is a handsome blend of black and timber cabinetry, with an island bench/breakfast bar, an elegantly tiled splashback, and pendant lighting.
A special feature is the pool room, which extends off the kitchen through double barn-style doors. This weekend haven includes a pool table and bar, plus wall-mounted bar leaners – no need to go to the pub when you’ve got this amazing space. And for the family members who prefer socialising under the stars, the large outdoor entertaining zone offers two distinct spaces – one for seated dining, the other a relaxed lounge area with the all-important pizza oven and spa pool alongside.
