In the centre of Dalefield’s ‘golden triangle’ on an elevated knoll is one of the true architectural treasures of the Queenstown Lakes District. Using strong and timeless materials it has been designed with scale and presence and sits well in its landscaped position. A large central pavilion is flanked by four concrete pods forming 536 square metres of internal space in the main building. This is complimented by a separate bunker style triple garage of 78 square metres and 162 square metres of decking delivering total improvements of over 775 square metres.
The impressive steel archway and entrance lobby start the experience in style and lead into the main hub with high vaulted ceilings and grand chandeliers. This central open plan room has the kitchen and dining areas at one end and lounge at the other separated by a double sided open fire. The north western pod is a more formal lounge with another open fire and captures the memorable sunsets viewed from the property.
The accommodation is located at the eastern end of the buildings showcasing a large north facing master bedroom that looks over the irrigated grass lawns and opens to the courtyard. Its extensive wardrobing and luxury en-suite are of the highest standard which is continued throughout the other bedrooms and bathrooms. A guest master also has an en-suite and two other bedrooms share a separate toilet and a well-appointed bathroom. This wing also has a media room which could easily be used as a home office or fifth bedroom if required.
Sheltered by the northern pods is a courtyard featuring an open fire, built in dining table, lounge suites, large umbrella’s and a stunning bespoke spa pool. The courtyard connects to the lush green lawns surrounded by a grass amphitheatre. The panoramic views are extensive and take in all of the significant ranges surrounding the Wakatipu Basin. At the rear of the house is a custom made sauna built inside a Corten steel box thoughtfully located by the ‘mudroom’ which has a shower.
Comprehensive garaging includes a double garage with internal access to the home and a separate three bay schist bunker to store the special toys or possibly convert to a large home theatre.
This is an absolutely comprehensive two hectare estate that ticks all the big boxes and will stand the test of time in both design and aspect.
