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 as three gable pavilions with linkways between. The exterior stonework creates a sense of solidity, further accentuated by two prominent stacked stone chimneys for the internal and external fireplaces.

The gable roofs provide high ceiling spaces to the living area, creating a sense of spaciousness and light accentuated by generous glazing. The main gable roof extends beyond the living area to create a covered outdoor entertaining area, anchored by heavy stone pillars and half-height walls to enclose the space.
