Build Your Next Dream Home On A Magnificent Otago Lake
Twenty-five minutes from Queenstown by helicopter sits Lot One Johns Creek.
If you’ve ever fantasised about living in pure wilderness, or creating a nature sanctuary to pass onto your children, then this magical piece of land could be your next landing spot.
Secluded in the Lakes District of Otago, on New Zealand’s South Island, this waterfront land offers access to mind-blowing beauty.
Facing the shores of Lake Hāwea, surrounded by kaleidoscopic mountain vistas, there are 5.5+ hectares of pristine land that can be developed for a private residence.
Otago resident and property expert, Craig Myles from Colliers Wānaka, describes the chance to buy into this place as a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity.
“Lot One really is one of a kind,” he notes.
“So rarely is a lake-front property found in this region, complete with a build platform that’s within a rural residential zone, yet not in an Outstanding Natural Landscape Priority Area.”
“Zoning allows an 8m height, granting the owner substantial flexibility to design a magnificent dwelling that is befitting the splendour of this site.”
With a north-facing aspect, Myles describes a magical parcel that holds sweeping panoramic views, from the lip of the lake to the tip of the pristine mountains.
“Lake Hāwea is a place where your pulse naturally slows, yet it’s just 20 minutes from world class restaurants and provisioning.”
Beyond the gates, a dusty road leads to the azure blue Lake Hāwea, the ninth largest lake in New Zealand. This is an unheard of 5.5 hectares of pristine land directly facing the shores of the lake, looking up to views up to the alps.
The site is covered with undulating, iridescent, green grass, where flocks of sheep meander the sloping grass. This is fertile land with access to its own supply of bore water, and it supports a 1000 sqm building platform with breathtaking views, that face due North over the exquisite lake.
Enriched by tussock scrub, beech forests and proximity to several freshwater ecosystems, the untouched land is situated less than an hour and half’s drive, from famous Queenstown.
The ultimate base for ski, kite surfing and outdoor adventure holidays, Lot One Johns Creek also fronts the renowned Gladstone walking and cycling track. This track connects Lake Hāwea township to John’s Creek. So whether it’s fishing, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, canoeing, or sailing, these can be easily accessed from the property.
If you love fishing, Lake Hāwea has a good population of brown and rainbow trout and to a lesser extent quinnat salmon. It’s the perfect place for kitesurfing, as well as fishing and boating.
In winter Wānaka is the perfect place to base yourself if you plan on hitting the slopes offering the chance to ski Mount Aspiring National Park.
At a time when finding a site of pure wilderness just 20 minutes to the nearest village with great restaurants and world-class produce is extremely rare.
Unless sold prior, the sale closes at 4pm Friday 17 November 2023.
