Pete & Inger's Queenstown Property

In the winter of 2000, we spent a day off the ski slopes looking around at properties in Queenstown. The first property we saw both grabbed our attention and imaginations. After looking at quite a few other properties in the region, our talk kept coming back to the first one we'd seen.

As the land wasn't on the market at the time, we just waited until the situation changed. We were back in Queenstown that summer and looked at the land again with another agency (along with some other properties). Again, our thoughts came back to the original land. This time it was for real!

The process of purchasing the land was a very slow process due to various environmental court decisions and building approval processes. Eventually the land was settled in August 2001.

The location is fantastic. There is a 360 degree view of the mountains, with a direct view of Coronet Peak ski resort and the Remarkables ski resort. Being situated on a hill, it receives excellent winter sun.
