Te Kahu is a sublime contemporary villa on the South Island of New Zealand, situated on fifty acres of private estate along the shores of Lake Wanaka. Winner of New Zealand’s Home of the Year Award in 2010, this architectural masterwork blends beautiful cedar woodwork with cutting-edge design principles, its unique form harmonizing with the natural landscape and optimizing the panoramic lake and mountain views. Three king suites and total accommodations for six guests make Te Kahu a superb choice for multiple couples or families seeking exquisite serenity within easy reach of Treble Cone, Wanaka, and Mount Aspiring.
The villa's visionary design fuses interior and outdoor living spaces into a seamless venue for private enjoyments. Two separate terraces extend from the open-concept interior—one with an outdoor fireplace and sitting area, the other with a barbeque grill and lovely alfresco dining table. Sliding glass doors allow the summer breezes to circulate throughout the home, while central and under-floor heating keep you toasty in the winter months.
