INTRODUCING HOMESTEAD BAY
A ‘slice of heaven’ in Queenstown
And that’s what makes Homestead Bay so special, with its 360-degree lake and mountain views, all-day sun, and a tranquil location with absolute lakefront access to the clear blue waters of Lake Wakatipu.
Homestead Bay is the last lakefront development of its kind, with consented plans for lifestyle bocks, freehold homes and stylish apartments, and a vibrant village centre and marina at its heart.
HISTORY OF HOMESTEAD BAY
Where the lake finds the mountain
and you find your new home
From intense geological beginnings to native Maori inhabitants and then European settlement, the land has homed and farmed quintessential New Zealand since the country began.
Immense pressure from tectonic plates formed the near-vertical cliffs and glacial movement then enhanced the sharp, rocky terrain and formed Lake Wakatipu at the mountain’s feet.
Archeological records show Maori lived in the Otago area as early as the 1100s, and their legends tell of ancestors with magical powers roaming the ranges they called Kawerau.
When European surveyors arrived in 1860s it is said that the sight of the sun setting behind Kawerau was so breathtaking, the mountains received the name they still carry today – the Remarkables.
Gold and coal mining were popular industries there around the turn of the century before the Jardine family established their farm, Remarkables Station, in 1922.
Four generations later, in 2003, the family sold some of their land to developers who are now giving buyers a chance to build their future on a truly remarkable piece of history.
The north-facing development, nestled between The Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu, spreads over natural land terraces in a bucolic setting, once part of the historic Remarkables Station.
Carefully-designed and integrated residential and commercial sites will appeal to the widest range of lifestyle and business needs. All buildings will be architecturally designed to reflect their Alpine surroundings, using plenty of local wood and stone.
Multi-award-winning architects Mason & Wales are bringing a European-style lakeside village look and ‘feel’ to the heart of the development.
