Aspen Grove, Queenstown

This commanding schist and steel clad house nestles into the rock face to offer unimpeded panoramic views to  Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables and Cecil Peak.

Cut stone walls define the interior rooms and rear walls, and a stone clad roof terrace expands the top floor social spaces outdoors.

Bedrooms and bathrooms on the mid-level share an equally impressive view.  A cantilevered bathroom does double duty as dramatic cover to the ground floor entrance, while garage and utility areas on the ground level are discreetly hidden away.
