Breath-taking Rakaia Gorge
This chalet is one of three privately owned homes on the top terrace of Mt Hutt Lodge with stunning views over Rakaia River and Mt Hutt. This unique chalet retreat comprises three bedrooms and is well-appointed with a heated tile floor and heat pump adding to the comfort of the attractive open plan living space. Built on two levels with downstairs bedroom plus ensuite and two bedrooms and separate shower and toilet upstairs. The interior has a modern decor; with warm natural timber finishes, a private balcony and ample secure parking at the rear. This chalet benefits from full access to extensive well-kept grounds, a good restaurant and a friendly licensed bar. In the summer months, relax in the pool or enjoy the song of the bellbirds and the dancing fantails. This tranquil retreat is a comfortable base for an action-packed lifestyle or a safe place to bring up kids - the choice is yours. You can ski, golf, bushwalk, pony-trek, fish for salmon and trout, kayak, take a jet boat, go horse riding or hunting, but make no mistake, when the clouds burn red in a Canterbury Arch sunset and a Nor-Wester is building, you know you are on the edge of the New Zealand wilderness. Yet it is only an hour to Christchurch International airport, ten minutes to the access road to the Mt Hutt ski field and fifteen to the delightful town of Methven. The entrance to Mt Hutt Lodge is one hundred metres up the well-named Zigzag Rd. This chalet has been in the same ownership for the last 18 years and now the opportunity presents for a new owner to enjoy.
