is where the heart is
The Homestead is the sophisticated central hub of Mt Cardrona Station. An elegant and architectural village precinct; and the key element that sets Mt Cardrona Station apart from the rest.
The Homestead: The centre of the station
Designed to be a landmark building, not just for the station but for the wider district, The Homestead consists of four buildings housing modern, resort-style facilities accessible all year round. The precinct offers sophisticated dining, meeting, and health and wellness amenities and is situated overlooking a tranquil tarn, which we think is best viewed from one of the outdoor hot pools.
The Homestead brings a level of sophistication to your rural haven. Enjoy a modern, elegant village precinct while keeping your connection to a vast mountain and valley landscape.
Meet at The Homestead
The Homestead is central to life on the station. Here, you can stop in for a coffee before walking the trails or meet friends for a long lunch out on the deck. It is the place for cosy après-ski drinks before heading to the hot pools for a soak.
Restaurant & Workspaces
The restaurant and café will equal those found in Queenstown, Arrowtown or Wānaka, yet with the benefit of being within walking distance of home.
Modern meeting rooms and workspaces provide high-speed connectivity and a good reason to work. For owners, The Club Room is a members-only space to gather for drinks and light snacks for apres-ski, watching the game or a casual get together.
Adventure Centre Facilities
Life on the station allows you to indulge in an active and adventurous lifestyle. The Adventure Centre is the place to prepare for adventures or rest and recovery afterwards. The Adventure Centre features:
- A gym and workout space
- Three outdoor hot pools
- A 25m lap pool
- A reception for all adventure-related needs: gym, ski transfers, bike and ski workshop
Building design & green credentials
Designed to be a landmark building, The Homestead consists of a series of long, low forms set in the hillside.
Its subtle presence deliberately emphasises the immense mountain and valley landscape it sits within. The building architecture is undoubtedly Central Otago, yet contemporary elements such as glass and stone give it a fitting contemporary and alpine edge.
The aim for The Homestead is for it to become a 6-star Green Star building giving it the highest-possible credentials for building performance and environmental impact. The use of ground source heat and other sustainability measures aim to improve thermal performance to keep the building cool in summer and warm in winter. Much work has been done here to ensure that this important building leads the way for sustainability.
The Homestead is just one of many reasons Mt Cardrona Station is redefining rural living.
