Most pricey Queenstown home at $15m


At $15 million – the Wakatipu’s highest-ever price-tag – this newly-listed Lake Hayes mansion justifies its agent’s blurb as “the pinnacle of home ownership in Queenstown”.

No 17 Wilding Road has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a media and theatre room, indoor swimming pool with diving platform, and entertainer’s kitchen with butler’s pantry.

Outside is a waterfall, large pond and “meditation platform” – not to mention elevated views over Lake Hayes. At 700 square metres, the mansion is almost three times the size of an average Kiwi home.

It smashes the previous record asking price for a Wakatipu residential property by at least $5m.
