A sanctuary of privacy, the exquisite garden setting and architectural style of this Lake Hayes home evoke a sense of place and permanence. Originally designed by architect Haden Emslie, a recent thorough renovation orchestrated by Anna-Marie Chin has seen it elevated to a haven of sophistication.

Interior spaces are thoughtfully designed to be intimate yet airy, stepping out to sun-bathed patios for alfresco dining and entertaining. Meticulously crafted by elite builders RBJ Construction, bespoke joinery and unique finishes adorn the open plan living spaces. The kitchen is superbly fitted out with oak flooring, a striking marble bench top and splashback and bespoke timber cabinetry. Light floods in from dawn till dusk, filtered through the green and white plantings surrounding the reflection pond in the western courtyard.

The well-proportioned master bedroom has an elegant ensuite and opens north to a stunning courtyard with Lake Hayes as a backdrop. A library and media snug offer spaces for relaxation and contemplation, completing a floorplan that prioritises living space. Currently configured as a generous two bedroom home, the conversion of a living space to a third bedroom is a simple solution for those requiring additional bedroom space. The functionality of the home is completed by an internally-accessed double garage, extensive storage and a dedicated laundry room.

In an aspirational lakeview position, the landholding is bordered by neat hedging, with contours that take advantage of the outlooks across Lake Hayes. The glorious gardens that surround the home have been created by Paul Bangay, widely regarded as one of the world's foremost garden designers. Direct access to the Queenstown Trail invites residents and visitors to cycle and stroll through the leafy surrounds bathed in year-round sun. Residents can also enjoy the Threepwood pavilion and tennis court.

Making space in your life for the leisure pursuits which add so much to Queenstown living, this soul-nourishing home is one in which every detail has been attended to.  As a holiday home or permanent residence it’s the whole package.
