Villa Jagged Edge, an unknown jewel in Queenstown, New Zealand
Just 10-minute drive from Queenstown, New Zealand, you can find this amazing architecture suspended on top of Lake Wakatipu. The Villa Jagged Edge, surrounded by the most spectacular mountains, is a glass pavilion with 270 degree panoramic views.
In the Queenstown region it is not difficult to find luxury hotels. However, Jagged Edge is unmatched in design, location and privacy. It was once a holiday home owned by a New Zealand family and is now a luxury vacation rental villa. The night can cost for $3550 (USD).
The Jagged Edge design is unique, being a glazed triangle structure that seems to be floating in the air. From afar, the visual impact is striking. One of the owners and designers of Jagged Edge, Julian McPike, said 8,000 cubic meters of rock were excavated to constuct the house’s platform.
The endless views from the edge of the pool overwhelm the senses with astonishment. Anyone who enjoys a bath in it will feel floating over the mountains.
The walls are entirely made of glass that protrude from the base at an angle of 18 degrees and rise to a height of 9.2 m at the apex of the triangle. This structure is almost invisible, you can see through it the mountains and the lake on the other side.
The interior space is totally open thanks to the use of glass. All bedrooms are located on the first floor, completely suspended from the ceiling and with an incredible panoramic view of the lake. The interior design follows strictly minimalist style to give a discreet look of elegance with its pale wooden floors, clean lines, etc.
In addition, Jagged Edge is equipped with the latest in technology: the wall panels that float across the mezzanine to enclose the open rooms; the grand piano that can be programmed to play; the spa pool with adjustable water level; the Sonos sound system and the 103″ Panasonic TV on the wall with its own cooling system.
On the ground floor there are the kitchen, the main living room and the large swimming pool. The underground winery keeps an exquisite selection of wine.
The villa Jagged Edge can accommodate up to 6 people.
