Your Hosts - Carmel and Ferg Daly

About us Carmel and Ferg

An award winning, architecturally designed home set amongst some of New Zealand’s most breath taking scenery

Close to the bustling town of Fairlie in the South Island’s Mackenzie Country, and just off the major tourist route between Christchurch and Queenstown, Alpine Views is a luxurious country estate of 26 hectares, the centrepiece of which is a splendid home, dressed in gleaming Oamaru stone.

The home itself is warm and inviting, with a combination of underfloor heating, log-burners, open fires and complete double glazing assuring your comfort. Though grand in scale, it offers intimate spaces to relax and unwind, with wonderous views to the surrounding mountains as a backdrop. 4 large bedrooms, all with en-suite form one wing and are joined by a cosy library corner to the rest of the home.

A formal lounge, or drawing room is an elegant entertaining spot and joins to the large Great Room, ideal for large gatherings, dining and banquets. The heart of the home is a fabulous kitchen – spacious, well equipped and welcoming, and offering the bonus of a capacious butler’s pantry. An informal lounge/media room provides a great space to unwind.

The property is close to fishing, hunting and tramping and an easy drive to the tourist meccas of Wanaka and Queenstown with their world-class skiing. The area is home to the World Heritage Mackenzie Country Dark Sky Reserve, Lake Tekapo with its famous hot springs and Mt. Cook.
The opportunities offered by this magnificent property include a country getaway, offering peace and privacy just a short drive from Timaru and Fairlie, a luxury country lodge catering to tourists and outdoor enthusiasts or an opulent, yet comfortable home for a growing family.
