Legacy by the Lake

This lakefront home has stood the test of time for 160 years. A part of the history of the Queenstown-Lakes district, the "Ship Inn" was built in c.1864 as a pub/hotel during the Wakatipu gold rush. A gathering point for weary travelers and their horses, this truly unique property was one of 10 hotels in the bustling hub of Kingston frequented by local settlers, farmers, goldminers and tourists on the railway in the late 1800s.

Following its origins as a hotel/pub, the dwelling was then converted into a residential home - with additions, alterations and renovations made in keeping with the original character. With hardwood flooring, exposed beams and two grand hearths, one of which boasts a stunning mantlepiece, there is so much to appreciate. Complete with an antique Shacklock Orion stove and striking arched stained-glass window, this home features elements from a bygone era with all the comforts of modernity.

Today, the Ship Inn makes for a comfortable and cozy two-bedroom, one-bathroom main home with the convenient addition of a sleepout with an unimpeded outlook over the lake. The spacious, open plan dining and living area will make for easy entertaining, with direct, peaceful views over Lake Whakatipu and the surrounding mountains. Natural light streams into the kitchen through the dual-opening french doors, which open out into a sheltered, private courtyard which has been cleverly landscaped.

This is truly a special home. Properties of this caliber are extremely rare, so don't miss out on this once-in-a-generation opportunity.
