Rustic river retreat near skiing and golf

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3 baths
Shotover Point is an enchanting luxury home outside Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand, an easy drive from Coronet Peak and The Remarkables ski areas. Nestled amid vineyards along the Shotover River, the converted antique farmhouse balances rustic alpine charm with superb modern comforts and amenities, including an outdoor hot tub, a gourmet kitchen, and excellent media features. Ample interior and outdoor living areas form a comfortable haven in any season—a perfect home-base for outdoor sport enthusiasts or destination wedding guests. Three spacious bedroom suites with ensuite bathrooms accommodate families and groups of friends up to six in size.
The open-concept great room forms the heart of the home, with high ceilings, exposed timber beams, and a large open fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped with chef-grade appliances and generous prep space, and serves a lovely dining table for eight. Comfortable lounge sofas face the fireplace and TV, ideal for toasty evenings or quiet afternoons. The historic home has maintained much of its vintage artistry, with superb stonework, rough-hewn wood, and wrought-iron accents. Thick walls, abundant natural light, underfloor heating, and a strategic orientation create a comfortable interior ambiance.
Glass doors open wide to the spacious deck, inviting beautiful views and fresh air into the home. The terrace invites you to relax and celebrate in the open air—relishing alfresco meals, sipping locally produced wine by the fire, or crawling into the hot tub for a soothing soak under the sublime sky.
The villa's master suite features a king bed, walk-in closet, desk, and ensuite bathroom with dual vanity and shower. Each of the guestrooms has a queen bed and ensuite bathroom, and one includes a pullout sofa for an additional guest. One of the guestrooms has a private lounge, and another opens to a private terrace.
Beyond the exquisite seclusion of Shotover Point, you're about twenty kilometers from the region's two major ski resorts; fourteen kilometers from Queenstown Golf Course; and ten kilometers form the shops and nightlife in the town center. Queenstown Airport is just seven minutes away.
