A traditional country manor that lies in a land of luxury, Cairnbrae is the ultimate retreat from the everyday.

Only a short 13-minute drive (11km) from Queenstown Airport lies the tranquil manor of Cairnbrae. Drive the rolling hills of the gated driveway and get lost in the picturesque views of the surrounding mountain scape.

Featuring stunning traditional stonework, natural woods and unpolished steel finishes, this property oozes country style with a contemporary flare. Enter through the grand entrance and let the outside seamlessly fuse with the interior with large floor to ceiling windows and panoramic views overlooking the grounds.

The open plan living, kitchen and dining space is perfect for entertaining friends and family, and from there you can continue to the library room. Complete with baby grand piano and more comfortable seating – this is the perfect spot to snuggle up with a book or sip a dram or two of whisky with just you and the view.

Featuring five bedrooms, Cairnbrae is the ultimate mountain escape for a multigenerational family. The master bedroom has its own private balcony, the perfect spot for that morning espresso, and features a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom also features an ensuite bathroom with the remaining three bedrooms sharing a bathroom at the other end of the house – ideal for those wanting a touch of privacy.

Cairnbrae is a haven for adults and children alike. Let the children let loose on the lawn, play on the trampoline and dive into the glass fronted pool as you relax on the terrace with a glass of Central Otago wine from your very own wine cellar. Enjoy a home wood fired pizza as your watch the sunset over the mountains, getting ready for tomorrows day of adventure.
