Lot 20 In Progress - Residential
Located within the exclusive Closeburn Station and perched in an elevated and sheltered spot above Lake Wakatipu, this new residential development promises to be spectacular.
The design by Mason & Wales comprises a collection of five pavilions centred around a sheltered entrance lobby and vehicle forecourt. The dwelling will contain six bedrooms, each with ensuite.
To maximise lake views, the generous living areas and open plan kitchen are located on the front (south) of the site. These living spaces include a gable form which comprises the sitting, formal dining and lounge areas, a flat roof section containing the kitchen and scullery and the feature ‘butterfly wing’ roof form containing a second living and dining area. The remaining pavilions are situated further to the north-east of the site and include a master wing, garage wing (with loft above) and guest/family wing.
Exterior materials include extensive areas of local stacked schist, with a combination of racked mortar (living and master wings) and bagged, plastered mortar (garage and guest wing). Blackened mild steel and stained cedar fascia are other key features of the exterior cladding.
The landscaping concept for the site proposed as part of this development retains existing native vegetation within the site where possible and also includes extensive native planting around the sites boundary and dwelling. A large lawn area as well as more formal plantings of exotic trees adjacent to the central vehicle forecourt of the dwelling will also be added to enhance the overall landscape.
