Put your feet up and take in the jaw-dropping views from this architecturally designed four-bedroom home near Queenstown. Three bathrooms and a stylish open-plan kitchen/dining/living area round out the luxuriously light and spacious 250sqm abode. The beautiful Remarkables mountain range forms the backdrop to easy-breezy, yet warm and cosy living. A large skylight delivers added illumination in the kitchen with its striking black and white dress code. Polished concrete floors provide thermal mass for passive solar gain. Large glazed sliders let the sun shine in and flow to outdoor entertaining spaces. A spa pool beckons for the ultimate in winter relaxation. Clad in random-width cedar with matt black tray roofing, the home sits well against the rugged scenery. Large 2.7m-high windows take full advantage of views over Queenstown. A loft bedroom with ensuite over the garage is a versatile feature. It can act as a private space for visitors or be used as a separate rental. What can we say, this home ranges high and wide.
