Nestled in a prime location on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, this residence seamlessly blends modern architecture with the beauty of a native bush environment.
Designed by the renowned architects KerrRitchie, this distinguished five-bedroom home has garnered significant national and international acclaim from the media. Its bold yet timeless modernist design harmoniously integrates with the surrounding landscape. Originally conceived to meet the needs of the architects' own family of five, this house marries functionality with architectural excellence.
The interior has been thoughtfully planned, offering open and light filled spaces, while also providing cozy corners for moments of solitude. The northwest wing of the house accommodates the family living quarters, featuring four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper floor, with generous living and dining areas below.
The layout of the house facilitates both indoor and outdoor entertainment, with a seamless flow between spaces. On chilly winter nights, the snug TV room with a wood-burning fireplace becomes a cherished retreat. Separated by the entrance way, the opposite wing of the house includes a guest bedroom, bathroom, and a sauna for relaxation.
A spacious work-studio area occupies the remainder of the structure, which could easily be converted into an additional bedroom or living space. The design of the house pays homage to its stunning surroundings, acknowledging the grandeur of the Remarkables mountain range in the backdrop and, of course, the mesmerizing views across the lake towards Cecil Peak Station.
Wye Creek area is renowned among locals for its abundant sunshine, making it one of the sunniest spots in the Wakatipu Basin. Just a short 10-minute drive from the town center and the airport, the property offers breathtaking night time vistas across the lake, encompassing the lights of Queenstown.
It's worth noting this remarkable residence was a proud winner of the Residential Category at the NZ Architecture Awards in 2008.
