A landmark Queenstown residence that pays homage to mid-century modernist architect Frank Lloyd Wright is being offered to the market for the first time.
The much-admired alpine property known as Thomas House, located at 90 Park Street, was built for entrepreneurial businessman David Thomas AM and his late wife Barbara.
The Thomases are among Australia’s largest environmental philanthropists, having donated over $40 million to conservation projects in Australia and New Zealand through their Thomas Foundation.
The substantial 451sq m residence is set in an expansive 2,150sq m lakefront setting in a tightly held street envied for its lake frontage, panoramic views, and 10-minute walkable proximity to Queenstown Town Centre.
90 Park Street is a landmark Queenstown residence that boasts panoramic lakefront views.
“It is unusual for a property to offer so many unique and appealing attributes. The residence itself is a timeless architectural statement. I think it would be one of the most admired and photographed homes in Queenstown, and it’s on Park Street - one of the most desirable addresses in the area,” O’Hagan says.
“The site is expansive, lakefront, zoned high density and has a unique 117m triple street frontage over two titles. The land affords multiple future development options, and at 62m, has the widest lake frontage of any residential home in the Queenstown town centre area. We anticipate strong interest on the basis of this being a very special property offering.”
The property spans 451sq m and offers many unique and appealing attributes for potential buyers.
Thomas House was designed by noted Australian architect Andrew Wiley with interiors by the late George Freedman. The award-winning park-like gardens, planted exclusively in natives, were designed by landscape Ralf Krüger.
The main residence offers formal living zones designed to maximise lake and mountain views, a dedicated art gallery with art storage and a commercial grade wine store. There are three bedrooms in the main residence with a separate lake-facing self-contained studio with private patio and parterre garden.
The home is being offered for sale by deadline private treaty closing 18 May, unless sold prior.
