Rotoiti Lake House is an absolutely unique property.

This much treasured Architects own Bach is situated so close to the lake itself (8 metres only!) that you'll have to pinch yourself to make sure that it is true!

The Lake House could be easily mistaken as a reasonably recent build due to the quality of its original owners design, but amazingly this Bach was built in 1961 - it's certainly true that good architecture doesn't date!

It has recently been lovingly and extensively refurbished to a more comfortable modern standard with appropriate conveniences, but the current owners have strived to ensure that the houses unique "Kiwi Bach" character has not been lost, and as such, period fixtures and furnishings throughout have been used where ever possible.

The property sits in an exclusive bay alongside only two other lake front properties, occupied by permanent residents, ensuring your peace and privacy. The bay itself is very safe, as it is off the main thoroughfare of the lake, and is perfect for children of all ages to explore in view of the family.

The site faces directly west so is fantastically positioned for full sun from late morning to late evening - when it's most required and can be properly appreciated. It is situated down a private forestry road far from the madding crowd, and also importantly, far from the traffic and therefore traffic noise that can plague other Rotoiti properties.

You are able to enjoy the convenience of a private jetty for your boat, as well as being in close proximity to a natural hot water bay, a ski lane, and the Manupirua Hot Pools in particular.

In recent times this property was specifically identified and used as a set for an international movie shoot...so I guess you could say it has proven bona fide star pulling power too!

So let your inner movie star out and indulge yourself in a little of the good life at our Rotoiti Lake House!
