Property Of The Week: 54 Twin Peak View, Wyuna Preserve, Queenstown, New Zealand
With New Zealand set to hold even greater appeal as an overseas destination – time to snare a luxury lodge outside Queenstown.
Designed by New Zealand’s oldest architectural practice, Mason and Wales, Twin Peak View is an impressive contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge.
Spanning 1000sqm on over 5.7 hectares of what is the gated community of Wyuna Preserve, this 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 5-car garage home sits within stunning nature just 35-minutes from Queenstown.
Exterior finishes in local schist stonework (quarried from the property), zinc roofing and expressed hardwood provide the home its ‘lodge’ appeal.
Inside, high-ceilings coupled with floor-to-ceiling, triple glazed windows, present breathtaking views to the wintery peaks shadowing the translucent waters of the ancient Lake Wakatipu. The lodge appeal is further carried by the use of solid oak boarded panelling and natural stone.
The kitchen sees Miele appliances, Vintech and Subzero temperature-controlled wine chillers and Boffi tapware set against a concrete benchtop inlaid with Jarrah wood.
The upper level houses the four luxury bedroom suites, each with walk-in-wardrobe and ensuite, as well as a home office and generous living and dining areas, again with the incredible views.
The main bathroom and all ensuites boast double vanities, Boffi taps, floor-to-ceiling tiling, granite benchtops and privacy glass that frosts at the press of a button.
Below ground is where you’ll find the five-bay garage, bar, games room, 20-seat Bose audio home cinema, wine cellar, sauna, massage room (so good after a day open the slopes) with natural light filtering in from the suspended stair atrium surrounded in glass.
The home also boasts underfloor heating throughout with programmable smart-home technology and access to onsite features that include a boat house for owner’s use and a trout-filled Lake Fyfe anglers.
