Nestled above Lake Wakatipu with private stairs down to the Lake's edge, this NEW listing is Five Star Guest-Reviewed Super Host Kaye Parker's own home. Kaye's Lakeside Retreat is luxuriously comfortable. Filled with art, books and all the creature comforts of home, together with personal design touches make it special. Absolutely everyone who walks through the front door is blown away by the stunning 180 degree views over the lake up to Coronet Peak ski field and the Crown mountain range. No photo can do the view justice. “The warmest, sunniest home in Queenstown in ANY season” is a comment made often by their guests. There are views over the lake and mountains from every room except the third bedroom which looks out onto the schist walled lawn, lavishly planted with white hydrangeas and roses.
The large open plan kitchen and dining lead to the living room which boasts a huge picture postcard window and runs the whole length of the room. Multiple sliding doors open to a large sun-filled deck from the dining and living areas The deck is replete with comfortable outdoor quality furniture. Facing West, it catches the last rays of the sun and you feel as though you are floating above the lake. The roaring wood burner, central heating and air conditioning with controls in every room keeps you toasty or cool depending on the season.This home is a gem.
The kitchen is well equipped and all Kaye's condiments are for your own use. Off the kitchen/dining room is a Utility room with an extra stove, pantry, freezer and washing machine and dryer. This room leads out to the beautiful schist walled lawn and flower filled garden.
The art-filled hallway leads to the main bathroom with walk in tiled shower. The Library has its own deck overlooking the lake. The sun hits early in the morning – the perfect spot for morning coffee or tea and offers shade in the evening. The Library has an additional TV and comfortable armchairs - great for teenagers or a second living room.
The Master bedroom has its own spacious wing at the end of the house. The Super King bed faces the beautiful lake and mountain views. The walk-in wardrobe leads to the Ensuite bathroom with spacious shower and standalone bath complete with chandelier.
The second bedroom off the hallway has THE most stunning lake and mountain views. The Queen French sleigh bed is so comfortable and looks over the amazing views from the wall of sliding windows giving 180 degree views. A large wardrobe and French antique chest of drawers completes the room.
The third bedroom has a top of the range King bed and overlooks the beautiful schist walled garden filled with white hydrangeas, roses and pretty green planting.
Three outdoor areas make this home evening more spectacular. The private hedge screened schist wall Courtyard has a bubbling spa pool/hot tub, outdoor seating and is beautifully planted with climbing and standard roses. The deck off the living room is the main wine o'clock space - again drinking in the views of the lake and mountains. And don't forget the deck off the Library, it gets the first sun in the morning and provides shade towards the end of the day.
The downstairs 3 car tandem garage is spacious and convenient for your suitcases and ski gear.
Kaye's Lakeside Retreat is perfectly situated on sunny Kelvin Peninsula. Five to ten minutes walk down private stairs along the Lakes Edge is the Hilton Hotel with its restaurants, pub and cafe. It is also the main pickup for the Water Taxi which takes you into downtown Queenstown with its 200+ cafes, restaurants and tourist activities. The bottom of the Remarkables Ski field is just 5 minutes drive up the road. Coronet Peak ski area is a 25 minute drive. At the end of the Peninsula is one of Queenstown's 5 International Golf Courses - the Queenstown Golf Club where the views are incredible. You are also right on the 120kms Queenstown Trail, the most used walking and cycling trail in the country. E-bikes are available for hire at the Hilton and as Kaye and her husband are keen cyclists she can recommend places to hire other bikes as well.
You are a 10-minute drive to the Remarkables Shopping Centre with supermarkets, cafes, Pharmacy etc. and 15 to 20 minutes drive into downtown Queenstown.
