Private paradise

Punatapu offers a unique rural hideaway in a tranquil alpine setting, just a ten minute drive from the heart of Queenstown. Meaning 'sacred pool' in Maori, the land here at Punatapu was developed into a luxury estate which offers an inspiring and restorative retreat-like experience.

Architecturally designed by the late Sir Ian Athfield, the residence itself is comprised of four linked accommodation buildings spread over around 760sqm, including six bedrooms and bathrooms, two kitchens and three living spaces. The comfortable and charming 1980s interior is well-equipped for its current venture as short-term visitor accommodation.

There are extensive entertaining capabilities, including multiple outdoor living spaces plus a heated swimming pool, sauna, and spa.

Soak in the natural beauty of the landscape, with manicured grounds, mountain views and idyllic gardens. Thriving all year round, the stunning gardens are the result of many years of love from the current owners.

Offering both magnificent surroundings and convenience, this easy contoured, sunny and spacious 4.95ha estate presents an ideal opportunity for future development. The offering includes the Proposed Lot 1 of 3.02ha containing the existing residence buildings plus a separate proposed Lot 3 of 1.93ha that features an 800sqm building platform and northerly views over its own stunning pond.

In a private and secluded position, this property is just a few minutes' drive to Moke Lake, Wilson Bay and Bob's Cove and their renowned walking and biking trails, and a short drive to all Queenstown amenities.

With existing infrastructure but also so much room for potential, a unique offering like this is rarely seen in Queenstown.
