Wanaka Holiday Home

A holiday home where a growing extended family of three generations can relax and reconnect.

A timber house featuring the beautiful grain and texture of cedar and plywood, durable enough for all the whanau, their friends and their pets.

An open plan layout that maximises views and allows sunlight to permeate throughout. Indoor and outdoor living zones are proportioned for small and large gatherings. Wide eaves and deep verandahs offer shelter from the intense Central Otago sun. An under-verandah wood burner burns hot for fireside chats as the evenings get cooler.

A home in tune with its alpine setting, close to the stunning Lake Wanaka. Vertical glazing at the entrance, in the colours of New Zealand’s alpine parrot the Kea, allows coloured light right inside.

The house includes universal design principles for ease of mobility such as level entry, wider doors and passages, step-free showers and an elevator.

The home has been awarded a 3-Star Lifemark rating.
