Property Details

FLOOR AREA 407 sq m         LAND 1.06 ha       PARKING 1x Garages

After the earthquakes in Christchurch, this magnificent iconic villa was saved from demolition and moved to this picturesque area of the Gibbston Valley, where it was painstakingly restored to its original design.

This impressive example of the Queen Ann style villa, known for its exceptionally elaborate embellishments, dates back to 1888.

Many of the original features of the house are still present, such as the stunning Carrera ceilings, the grand staircase, the wooden paneling, the fireplace, the mosaic tiles, and the native timber flooring.

The four double bedrooms, including the master with its own en suite, walk-in wardrobe, and custom turret, have a great sense of space and light due to the remarkable stud height throughout. There are two more period style bathrooms on the site.

With its spacious open kitchen and dining area, Rayburn burner, and other modern amenities, this space becomes the center of the home. It is ideal for catering dinner parties or events because it is adjacent to a sizable scullery that has a nearly brand-new double width Smeg oven, prep sink, and bench.

With its elaborate fireplace, hardwood paneling, and cabinetry, the formal living room seems like something out of a fairy tale. Year-round, the large bay window lets in the last of the day's light.

The internal access garage, the private home theater, the partial double glazing, the radiator heaters throughout, the insulation, the upgraded wiring and plumbing are examples of modern additions.

The location is serene, tucked away amongst surrounding vines yet dramatic, offering expansive views of the valley walls and the showpiece, Nevis Bluff, with its stunning and dynamic form.

With VA approval, the property has a modern, detached one-bedroom cottage.

This world-class wine region offers a plethora of lifestyle amenities, such as restaurants, award-winning vineyards, and walking and cycling paths. The world is literally at your doorstep because of Queenstown's close proximity and its international airport.
