This luxury, expansive home is located in ‘The Reserve’, a new development within Gibbston Valley Resort, located on Gibbston Valley Station. The station is over 1000 acres and the current resort, which includes the Gibbston Valley Winery & Lodge, is now being progressively developed and expanded in stages into a full resort development.

The home is located on a prominent, sought-after front lot, slightly elevated and overlooking the 9 hole golf course, and oriented towards the Crown Range mountains.

Reflecting the surrounding high-country landscape and history of the area, a classic, schist-clad lodge was designed with dual gable pavilions and a linkway. The exterior stonework creates a sense of solidity and harks back to the humble gold-mining cottages that were dotted throughout the valley in the past.

The gable roofs provide high ceiling spaces to the living area, creating a sense of spaciousness and light accentuated by generous glazing. A sheltered courtyard is nestled between the two pavilions, with operable louvres allowing the outdoor space to be conveniently adjusted to suit all times of day and weather conditions.
