The ‘Buckingham Cottage’ building is a category two property in the Heritage NZ register and a category three in the QLDC register to protect its external appearance. Currently leased by a mixture of tenants the property has a steady income stream and plenty of scope for improvements in the next chapter of its impressive history.  Buckingham Cottage has a commercial tenancy but could be converted to residential with both Resource and Building Consent in place to expand the small kitchen and add a door opening to a private courtyard. The middle building is being used as an art studio with two other rooms and a full kitchen – also very suitable for an office and/or showroom. The third building has been recently renovated creating a charming studio apartment with en-suite and kitchenette plus separate rooms for its garage, laundry and loft storage. On balance the property offers an opportunity to purchase a mixed use investment hub with two street frontages only 200 metres from the Arrowtown Post Office with at least seven off street carparks. These opportunities don’t come to market often, as proven by only having four owners in the past 150 years.

338 Arrowtown-Lake Hayes Road is a significant part of Arrowtown’s history originally being part of a dairy farm owned by the McEntyre family who were one of the founding families in the area. After building it in 1864 they lived in the home for many years and were active in the community, including the re-routing of the main road into Arrowtown which is now known as McEntyre Hill.

The house itself is the perfect backdrop for such a significant garden, with outer walls built with two foot thick schist and coated in a lime wash effect product which allows the stone to breathe.

House

Situated on an elevated, private and sunny 5,260 square metres with expansive views of Coronet Peak this unique home and studio of 335 square metres was designed for easy living and entertaining. Built in 2005 the architectural theme was an original stone building with extra buildings added on over the years while passing from generation to generation. Original materials and fittings sourced from Central Otago and beyond are matched with modern comforts of double glazing and underfloor heating creating an authentic experience. This effect has been implemented to painstaking detail and gives the interiors a feel of timeless quality. A master bedroom with en-suite and walk in wardrobe are joined by two bedrooms which share a large main bathroom with sunken spa-bath. Two living rooms, a chefs kitchen with scullery, dining room, multi-functional mezzanine and subterranean wine cellar complete the floor-plan. A two car garage and attached newly renovated studio with en-suite, and a wood and bike shed are all in keeping with the rustic look. Stone and cedar cladding outside and high quality timber joinery give a romantic alpine feel. Multiple options for outdoor entertaining include an open fireplace within a stone walled sitting area and a large north facing outdoor lounge and dining courtyard. Landscaped for easy care with a large flat lawn and located at one of Queenstown’s most desirable addresses this is a unique opportunity. Approximately seven kilometres to Arrowtown or the base of Coronet and only fifteen kilometres to downtown Queenstown.
