A story and an outcome that truly capture the imagination. Breath-taking in both location and exquisite restoration, this striking home's tale begins in 1888 in Christchurch. It's a story rich in life, heritage and commitment, culminating in a unique residence amongst some of Queenstown's most iconic landscapes.
The well-documented transportation of the home to Queenstown was followed by many months of restoration, rejuvenation and extension, taking the original villa and transforming it into a palatial modern home. Uninterrupted outlooks to the east guarantee the vineyards and craggy mountainsides will be a permanent feature.
Lavish yet refined interiors feature soft colours, subtle wallpaper and lustrous original timber to bring the character of the home to life. The functionality is all new - wiring, spouting and ample insulation sit perfectly wrapped in a package of ornate plaster scotias, fretwork and ceiling roses. Four bedrooms, three beautiful bathrooms, a library, turret room, large laundry, double garage and so much more stretches out across approx. 340sqm. A very special room houses a theatre complete with authentic upcycled seating and a stage for performers young and old.
Invite friends, family or paying guests to stay in the approx. 60sqm 'tiny house' onsite. Modern and stylish, the two bedroom cottage has ample space and every comfort. Heated by woodburner, the neat home draws inspiration from the heritage features of the main property.
1.05ha of landscaped grounds surround the home. The famously fertile land is alive with a young orchard of fruit and nut trees plus a plethora of oaks, chestnuts, poplars and more, all fully irrigated for easy maintenance.
