Set amongst the history and beauty of the stunning Queenstown-Arrowtown backdrop, Bendemeer captures all that is unique about alpine New Zealand. Natural materials, contemporary detailing, durability and generous spaces characterise homes in Bendemeer's secure gated community, creating an environment that’s as restful as it is powerful.
Designed by award winning architects Warren and Mahoney the 590 square metre family home is separated into five stand-alone stone and timber ‘pavilions’ grouped around a walled entry courtyard and mature landscaping. The separate components, heated and cooled with a combination of underfloor heating, heat pumps and air conditioning, allow the house to scale itself to suit its occupants – either intimate for a couple or expanding to suit a wider group when required. A north facing outdoor terrace with covered awnings connects to the main pavilion giving a stunning aspect beyond the feature reflection pond, outdoor fireplace, barbeque and pizza oven.
The home includes a seven metre high combined living and kitchen area with a large wood burning fireplace and separate formal dining room. The large master bedroom opens to a private, hedged courtyard, and features a private office, large walk in robe and ensuite. Three guest bedrooms each have their own double basin ensuite, one of which has currently been converted into a bespoke home cinema with four reclining theatre seats and a 110 inch projector screen. Fibre internet adds speed and convenience for residents.
There is an internal access oversized three car garage connecting to a generous laundry and drying room, two storage lofts as well as two exterior storage sheds.
The house sits on 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres) of mature landscaped grounds with in-ground lawn sprinklers covering a majority of the property. Investing at Bendemeer goes far beyond your own boundaries with the shared common grounds which include idyllic ponds, a tennis court, walking tracks and the award-winning Lakeside Pavilion, complete with entertainment deck and jetty. Superb dining options nearby include Amisfield and the recently-opened Ayrburn, inviting residents to sample locally-sourced cuisine and the district’s renowned wines.
Conveniently situated just 7 kms to Arrowtown, 16 kms to downtown Queenstown, 11 kms from the International Airport and a stone's throw away from three ski resorts and three world renowned golf courses.
