Elevated above the valley and with dramatic mountain views, this stunning, Simon Carnachan architecturally designed home is set amongst 8243 sq m of established grounds in sought-after Dalefield. Sunny and very private, its position allows for a direct view of the slopes of Coronet Peak Ski Field.
A private, birch tree lined driveway sweeps around past an orchard to the front of the house, where its schist stone, cedar and steel exterior give an indication of the stylish interior within. A steel wall conceals a pair of full height glass doors which open onto the light filled entrance space and the main living area of the home.
The exposed steel portals of the building create a striking frame for the elegant open plan living, dining and kitchen space. Double height pitched timber ceilings and large glass doors which extend across the length of the room create a wonderful sense of openness, while the low walls of the kitchen and a cosy library create structure and privacy at the centre of this large space. Glass doors on two sides open the room out to the garden, where steel shutters can be drawn across to shield the sun.
A feature schist stone fireplace creates a focal point for a seating area at one end of the room, while a sleek waxed steel fireplace stands opposite it where there is a second seating space. The library also has an open fire and doors at either end which allow for this area to be closed off from the rest of the living space.
The stunning stainless steel Arclinea kitchen which features marble bench tops and Miele appliances is at the heart of this space. A door leads through to a large laundry and pantry which has its own outside access.
A skylight stretches the length of the hall leading to the study which has a gas fire and doors which open out to the lawn. The study opens on to the master suite, an elegant open space which is divided by a wall of wardrobes and which has a further large walk in wardrobe, a bath overlooking the rural views, a walk in shower and a separate toilet.
A further bedroom opens on to the garden and also has a walk in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom. A third bedroom which opens out to a charming courtyard, and a separate bathroom are also situated in this wing. A fourth, studio bedroom is found above the attached double garage where there is also a bathroom and plenty of storage.
Outside, manicured lawns lead down to a sunny terrace and BBQ area; an ideal place from which to take in the spectacular views. Beech hedging screens a sunken vegetable garden, and steps lead through mature trees to a further five bay garage and workshop. A Plexipave tennis court completes this fabulous home.
Modern elegance is embodied in this property, with many features and refined spaces for the discerning owner. A unique, private location paired with the well-considered residence presents an unsurpassed opportunity not to be missed.
