Set on a stunning parcel of Queenstown's premium countryside covering 4.7ha is an award-winning Ed Elliot designed home that will impress you from the moment you enter its landscaped entrance courtyard. 3,000 Pinot Noir vines flank the entrance with formal hedging and a bridge over the Arrow water race.
The structure of this rural retreat blends into the landscape by taking its shapes from the mountains and barns nearby. Built in 2005, the design divides the 365m2 home into three buildings each taking in unique views and combining to provide shelter and architectural form. The extensive decking and minimalist interior ensures that the house is very much about its relationship with its environment. Superb outdoor living including an open fire overlooks the landscaped wetland area to the west of the house.
Large sliding doors and windows are combined with ceiling glazing to give a light and clean feel to the generous internal spaces. The sky is visible throughout the home and changing weather and the shape of the windows create interesting patterns of sunlight and shadow. All three bedrooms have large wardrobes and tiled bathrooms which open to the outdoor deck space.
Quality fittings live up to expectation throughout the kitchen and flow into the entertainment and lighting systems. Other features include a home theatre, large office (or 4th bedroom), extensive garaging, utility areas, and ample storage spaces.
Overall a very good example of a completed, established rural estate just waiting to be enjoyed by its next owner.
