Gibbston Valley Winery’s upmarket $750 million lifestyle development project has reached a significant milestone with the first homes currently being built in the prestigious settlement.
“This is great progress for the Gibbston Valley Resort,” says CEO Greg Hunt. “The Reserve stage is now titled with 70 per cent of the sections sold and new homes already under construction. We’re excited to see the market respond to our premium lifestyle offering.”
He says the Resort will be delivered in stages with each neighbourhood offering specific attributes that contribute to the overall aesthetic.
“The Rockery which is the next stage of the development has limited pre-release sections available for purchase. It is comprised of ten lots set amongst the natural schist outcrops that are unique to this Central Otago area and overlooking a natural spring water feature. There are limited freehold sections and house and land packages that offer all the benefits of resort living.”
The entranceway to the development is directly opposite Gibbston Valley Winery and an underpass which is scheduled for completion in early 2025 will provide easy access to the winery, restaurant, lodge and spa.
A nine-hole golf course designed by well-known New Zealand golfer and course designer Greg Turner is currently under construction.
“We have just completed the practice putting green with the first six holes ready for seeding during spring,” says Greg. “The Reserve overlooks the golf course that has been designed to work with the natural landscape of the property that borders the Kawarau River.”
The Resort’s Club House designed by Condon Scott and Space Studios is also under construction and will provide homeowners with a place to gather and socialise. It houses a swimming pool, private gym, outdoor fire pit and pétanque area and owners receive member benefits across all Gibbston Valley wine, food and accommodation products and winery activities.
Greg says The Resort sales office is located at the winery so potential buyers can easily access more information onsite.
“Now that the Reserve stage is complete we are fortunate to have the next stage available with fixed-price land and house packages providing a high quality, low stress purchase option to discerning buyers.”
