Living this close to the Southern Alps doesn't have to mean buying a high-maintenance, remote lifestyle block, far from the amenities of the town. A new development, which stretches from the foot of The Remarkables to the shores of Lake Wakatipu, lets you enjoy mountain views from an architecturally designed home on a manageable site with plenty of facilities close by.

Located 10 minutes' drive from Queenstown Airport, Jacks Point is a master-planned community with an 18-hole golf course and village centre, developed by Darby Partners, Queenstown. It occupies 1200ha of land the majority of which is being preserved for the community's recreation facilities and parkland. These include extensive walking and biking trails, tennis courts and sports fields. The 72-par golf course weaves through outcrops of alpine rock and has panoramic views of the lake and mountains.

In this setting, Fletcher Living, a division of Fletcher Building, began the first phase of building 230 architecturally designed houses at Jacks Point in March 2006. The houses have modern decors, contemporary fittings and a focus on outdoor living areas.

Kristi Howley, sales manager of Fletcher Living Queenstown, says the houses at Jacks Point are designed to blend with the landscape and allow the mountains to take centre stage.

"Natural and earth-toned materials have been specified, such as cedar, copper, granite and local stone. The colour scheme, inspired by the native tussock, bulrush and flax, keeps a feeling of continuity throughout the development."

In order to make the most of the 360Ë alpine views and long sunshine hours, every property has a north-facing patio. This makes an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining on summer evenings.

Equally comfortable in winter as they are in summer, the homes have underfloor heating and double-glazing for increased energy efficiency.

The properties are sold as complete house and land packages and are suitable as either a primary residence or a holiday retreat. Owners may rent out their property when not in use, and a maintenance team will be available, so that absentee owners can have their lawns cut and gardens watered.

Interiors are modern and simple, with an open-plan kitchen and living area suitable for entertaining. Neutral flooring materials and a subtle decor provide a blank canvas on which the homeowners can express their personal style.

Every Fletcher Living home at Jacks Point has a Master Build guarantee, protecting against structural defects for seven years, and against defects in materials and workmanship for two years.

Membership to the Jacks Point Golf Club for owners and their immediate families is included in the purchase of a house and land package, although annual subscriptions apply.
