About Lake's Edge

The site known today as Kawarau Village was first settled by European explorer William Gilbert Rees in 1860. Rees, who is regarded as the founder of Queenstown, chose the Kawarau Village location not only for its awe-inspiring views and peaceful serenity, but also to take advantage of its north-facing, sunny, sheltered orientation.

Fast-forward some 150 years and the Kawarau Village of the present includes the luxury Hilton Resort and Spa, a selection of world-class restaurants, bars and retail facilities. The village manages to achieve both a vibrant and relaxed feel, the latter no doubt aided by the serenity of its natural surroundings.

The release of a limited number of lakefront properties comprising the Lake’s Edge community within Kawarau Village presents a unique opportunity to own part of this historic site and take advantage of the benefits that originally attracted William Gilbert Rees to the area.

Masterplan-designed to be both sympathetic with the existing Kawarau Village community as well as maximising the natural features of the location, will ensure all owners have optimal views and a north-facing orientation, as well as easy access to the lake front and village facilities.

To ensure design integrity and sustainability, Lake’s Edge is governed by a number of well conceived architectural design controls and a sensitive landscaping strategy to protect the quality and aesthetics of the built environment, as well as maintaining the prestigious character of Kawarau Village.

Lake’s Edge is perfect for those seeking a scenic, picturesque environment, whilst also enjoying the benefits of the facilities provided from a five-star resort community. The all-day water-taxi service will have you in town in only ten minutes.
