Unique hill-top home “has it all”, including 360°

 Media Release

Unique hill-top home “has it all”, including 360° views   

Being built on top of a hill rather than below the ridgeline has given a unique advantage to an Upper South Island home on the market for the first time since it was developed.

Being marketed exclusively by Aaron Davis of Harcourts Blenheim, the one-of-a-kind architecturally designed home was allowed to be erected on top of a hill because even on its special site with 360 degree views it does not disturb even its closest neighbours.

Mr Davis says that securing the hill-top location for their spectacular home meant the vendors were able to secure stunning 360 degree views that take in nearby Lake Elterwater, Cloudy Bay, the Cook Strait and the bottom of the North Island, right round to the Kaikoura coast and beyond.

“I would challenge anyone to find a better view in New Zealand,” he says.

The four-year-old home, which is set on 25 hectares of rolling land that encompasses a river border, includes three large double bedrooms, open plan lounge and dining areas, a separate family room, a large modern kitchen, two bathrooms, two toilets and a separate laundry.

“Constructed of high quality materials and fitted out to a superb standard with high quality fixtures, substantial insulation, numerous heating options, double-glazing and ventilating skylights this home truly has it all, with amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows topping it off perfectly,” Mr Davis says.

Just three kilometres from the township of Ward and approximately 25km from bustling Blenheim the property, which is currently being used as grazing for horses and cattle, is surrounded by farmland and newly established vineyards.

“The combination of lifestyle block, outstanding modern home and panoramic views make this property a rare find,” Mr Davis says.

Located at 6886 State Highway One, Ward this property is for sale by negotiation due to a change in the owners’ personal circumstances.
