This spectacular Queenstown home designed by Dravitzki & Brown Architecture is positioned on a terrace in Jack’s Point looking back towards Queenstown and Coronet Peak, in an area flanked on one side by Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables on the other.
Not really that bad a spot it must be said!
Just imagine yourself living in this contemporary home boasting a generous land area of 1,119sqm and being greeted by the double door entranceway leading to the living, dining and entertaining terrace.
“The brief was to design a home that would both fit with its environment but have a modern aesthetic. It also had to be four bedrooms, maximise the elevated views and be a home that would work for a range of people, either as a permanent residence or as a holiday home,” director Katrina Dravitzki from Dravitzki and Brown Architecture says.
“The site was relatively narrow towards the north and views, with houses quite close on the eastern and western boundaries, so the design was about maximising the number of rooms that face north, whilst maintaining privacy within the home.
“The form of the house became three pavilions wide with an upper level master bedroom. The master bedroom has a 360 degree view of all the surrounding mountain peaks and Lake Wakatipu.”
The spacious home is surrounded by stunning areas of reserve both in front and behind the property, enhancing the mesmerising northerly outlook and the beauty which lies in the sound architecture of this designer home.
The geometric shape is stylish and striking, and its large yawning sliding doors and frameless glass balustrade to the upper level deck allows for superior views into the distance. Although liberally spacious, privacy doesn’t escape its quarters; a sense of intimacy and comfort is easily found for those who choose to live here.
It contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two garages and a designer, custom-made, open plan kitchen containing everything you would expect to find or need, including Fisher and Paykel kitchen appliances and a wine fridge in the adjoining scullery.
Built in 2013 it was constructed using a mix of iron and cedar materials. Cedar cladding climbs the exterior walls, timber flooring covers the living and dining room areas, and beyond this point you’ll find yourself on hardwood timber decking.
The garden, which appears to go on and on as it merges into the scenic background, is fully landscaped; clean and filed down edges, frames the property lines.
“Jack’s Point in Queenstown has a rural natural character, quite different to most new subdivisions, so material choice is really important. Cedar and Corten steel are just rustic enough to blend in with the Central Otago colours, but still maintain a modern look which is important to our design style.”
