Glass house with the lake and mountains in the background

This amazing contemporary glass house is located on the Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand. Single story home offers one of the most breathtaking views on Earth.

The house is not large, but the atmosphere it creates with this amazing surrounding nature is priceless. Glass walls allow interior architecture to connect with the outdoor landscape. It's perfect for you if you ever wanted to build a home on the place like this.

"This contemporary designed property is the epitome of open-plan lakeside living. Exquisitely finished both internally and externally using natural schist, cedar and expansive glass walls, all of which blend beautifully into the natural surroundings that Bobs Cove has to offer.

An impressive copper front door perfectly complements the exterior cladding. Three metre high floor-to-ceiling windows span the length of the north and south walls of the open-plan lounge/kitchen area, allowing the superb views of Lake Wakatipu to be enjoyed right through the house. The roof extends beyond the glazed walls over the outdoor patios, providing a form of passive heating and cooling throughout the year.

Extensive private outdoor patio areas have natural wood fires, setting the tone for the ultimate in outdoor entertainment for all seasons. Enjoy morning coffee in the architecturally-designed modern kitchen with solid granite breakfast bar or dine in the sumptuous lounge area with the open gas living flame fire providing the ultimate in ambiance for those après-ski winter evenings.

Two of the three expansive bedrooms, each with luxurious en-suite and large walk-in closet form the east and west wings of the house and make the most of the views across the lake, with a third main bedroom featuring a private patio with magnificent mountain views. A private media room with integrated audio control system throughout the home and outdoor areas provides entertainment flexibility with dual satellite and blu-ray units.

This immaculately finished lakefront statement property has private access to the beach and also the walking trails and lies within easy access to Queenstown and the International Airport.

A truly superior property located in the wonderful landscape of Lake Wakatipu."
