Bold modernist design and expansive mountain views

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
This architectural gem is nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, on the South Island of New Zealand, close to the ski resorts at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. The modernist design maximizes the villa's privileged position, with breathtaking mountain views in virtually every living area and bedroom, expansive outdoor spaces (including a superb rooftop terrace), and a beautiful water feature inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house. Exceptional amenities for wellness and relaxation include a sauna, outdoor hot tub, gym, and two gourmet kitchens (indoor and outdoor). Air conditioning, heating, a home office, and an elevator create a comfortable environment for guests of all ages. The four bedrooms at Cascata—all with outdoor living areas—accommodate families and groups of friends up to eight in size.
Multiple outdoor living spaces invite you to savor the alpine air and spectacular views. On the main level, the open-concept living and dining area open to a lake-facing terrace and an alfresco dining patio, featuring a barbeque grill, rustic pizza oven, cocktail lounge, and table for twelve beneath a pergola. The hot tub is perched on the ground floor, while the extraordinary roof terrace features a lounge, with panoramic views encompassing Cecil Peak, The Remarkables, Kelvin Heights Golf Course, and the lake.
Wall-to-wall glass doors infuse the interiors with natural light and lake-fresh breezes. The beautifully furnished lounge with high-end entertainment system flows gracefully into the dining area, where the open kitchen features chef-grade appliances and a wide breakfast bar. The villa also includes a superb home office and gym (both with inspiring views), as well as a cozy home theater. A cutting-edge LED lighting system evokes an enchanting ambiance at night.
The master suite features a king bed, private balcony with breathtaking views, and ensuite bathroom with dual vanity, open shower, and lovely soaking tub. The second and third bedrooms share a balcony between them, as well as a deluxe bathroom. The fourth room, with king bed, opens to a terrace and shares a bathroom with the gym.
Beyond this lakeside sanctuary, you're just three kilometers from SKYCITY Queenstown Casino, and within easy reach of Wakatipu Yacht Club, Queenstown Golf Course, and some of the finest skiing and hiking in New Zealand.
