One of central Queenstown’s most distinctive-looking accommodation properties is for sale.
The European-styled Chalet Queenstown, at 1 Dublin St, operates as a high-end bed and breakfast.
Owned by an Auckland party, it comprises seven ensuited double rooms and a manager’s suite on a 607 square metre section.
As it’s in a high-density residential zone, it also has development potential.
The property’s for sale by negotiation and has a capital value of $2.21 million, of which $1.75m comprises the land component.
‘‘It’s such an iconic property in such a great zone, and the business is running very well,’’ says local Bayleys agent Eric Wilhite, who’s co-listed it with colleagues Ting Xie and Arrowtown-based Richard Newman — though he admits the mid-’70s building’s aesthetic appeal is a little diminished with roadworks blocking off its Frankton Rd access.
The property’s lease — the subject of a rent review — runs for another nine years.
