Scenery stunner in Queenstown


Scenery stunner in Queenstown


This home is stunning in so many ways. Not only is it located under the mighty Coronet Peak on the sunny side of the Shotover River but the design and execution of this holiday home is impeccable and sits harmoniously within the spectacular setting.

Its stylish cladding combination of local schist stacked stone and the Envira Weatherboard System demonstrates that rusticated weatherboards are not limited to villas or traditional style homes. 

The sectioning of the weatherboards with battens and finishing the corners with Envira box corners played a large part in this home’s unique and tidy finish.


The design is further enhanced with a chunky outdoor living area, which features Niagara’s laminated posts
and beams.


“The effortless flow from indoors to the exterior is a common modern demand and this design doesn’t disappoint through stacking sliding doors onto level entry decking and timber pergola.”

KGR Design, Invercargill, the architects who designed
the home in conjunction with the owner.

“Internally, a raking T & G ceiling with exposed trusses has been used to accentuate the volume of the living spaces. Along with the band sawn detailing on the kitchen island and rustic sliding internal doors, these natural timbers help create a warm and inviting atmosphere.”

With any modern home—and particularly a holiday home—low maintenance is paramount. For this reason, TimberTech decking was installed as owners never need to paint, stain or seal this hardy composite surface. With its ability to handle the harsh Queenstown elements and its hard wearing, splinter and screw-free finish, TimberTech is the perfect decking choice to complete this superb home and keep it looking fantastic for years to come.
