Set on an acre above Lake Hayes, 12 Alec Robins Road is a luxurious home for the discerning buyer. This Schist and cedar weatherboard home has had no expense spared and the idyllic setting boasts one of the best views of Lake Hayes, perfectly captured by the clever design and open plan living spaces.
Vaulted ceilings give a sense of space and light to the main living area. Wall to ceiling recessed sliding doors open to the iconic mountain and lake views and northerly sun. A designer kitchen with Miele appliances and Timaru Blue Stone floors, and a fireplace set against the original schist are the focus. Entertain year round and watch the seasons change.
There is an open plan one bedroom studio cottage on the property with separate access and separate driveway which is completely self-contained, with an approximate floor area of 60 square metres. It has original bridge beams in the ceiling and plaster walls with a cottage feel, serviced by a gas hob and gas hot water. It has a small wood-burning firebox and underfloor heating in the bathroom. It includes a fridge and washing machine and has a check meter to determine the power, the main house has been designed with privacy in mind so that it is discreet from the cottage.
The property faces north/west and has been designed to capture and retain maximum heat in winter when the sun is lower and to keep sunlight out with the 900 mm eave overhang in summer. Remote control blinds can be used to cut direct sunlight in summer if required.
The floor in the kitchen is Timaru blue stone and has been designed to soak up heat from sunlight in winter and release it during the day for passive productivity.
The land in front of the property on the lakefront is council reserve and there are no neighbours who have visibility of the property and so it is very private. Alec Robins Road is a quiet country lane with no through access.
The Main house has been assessed as having a short term rental assessment of between $1000 - $1500 a night and the cottage has been assessed as having a short term rental assessment of around $350 per night.
