Glenorchy, New Zealand


Lake View, Mountain View, Pasture View.


An iconic piece of New Zealand - a trophy landholding to undertake a world-class development.

This 56.83 hectare (approximate) parcel of land is situated on the shores of Diamond Lake, Paradise, New Zealand. Zoning is 'Rural Visitor' which enables luxury residential and visitor accommodation development. The property is well recognised as a film location for several Hollywood blockbusters. Surrounded by snowcapped peaks and unobstructed views of Diamond Lake and the Southern Alps this property is a very special place.

Arcadia House was built in 1906 as a guest house until it became the homestead for the property owner in 1920. The house has been slightly modified from its original layout and now consists of 11 bedrooms, 8 fireplaces, a large modern living area, lounge and other various rooms.

Arcadia High Country Station is a one hour drive from Queenstown resort town and 15 minutes from Glenorchy village or a 15 minute flight from Queenstown International Airport.

Acquisition of this landholding will allow the purchaser to create a very special retreat for guests, friends & family. Having 'Rural Visitor' zoning in place, the site has development potential for a number of uses, including high-end residential dwellings, visitor accommodation or a luxury lodge to rival the world's best. Given the land's easy contour, spectacular outlooks, and 790 metres frontage on Diamond Lake, this is a golden opportunity for an eco-friendly developer, investor or syndicate to create a development worthy of the unique zoning. An option to acquire further Arcadia land may be made available to the purchaser (also zoned 'Rural Visitor' with a 7,000 square metres commercially-zoned block).

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a larger land holding in one of New Zealand’s most pristine environments.
