Carefully master-planned, Jack's Point will feature over 1300 residential homes, a lakeside Village with accommodation, restaurants and shops, alongside its highly-acclaimed championship golf course, and over 25 kms of hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
What sets Jack's Point apart is an absolute commitment to the landscape and the environment. Only five per cent of this vast area will be built on. A covenant means the rugged, dramatic and open nature of the grassland and mountain landscape that make up Jack's Point, will remain forever protected from development.
Seen from a distance, the first impression of Jack's Point is space, green and gold tussock grassland, massive areas of native vegetation and an undisturbed lakefront. The area includes an extensive restored wetland, native songbird habitat, and a working farm. Towards the Remarkables, several distinct, close-knit neighbourhoods overlook the central lake and Village area. Dotted within the Preserve are 36 expansive home-sites with commanding views to the north and west.
Jack's Point farm is managed by resident farmer James Patterson. It is part of the original Remarkables Station established by William Rees at the time of first European settlement of the South Island and has been farmed by the Jardine family for four generations. Sheep graze around the internationally renowned championship golf course.
While close to Queenstown, Jack's Point is a distinctly different place with its own character, pulse and personality. It is growing sustainably from the ground up, and being built using the stones that underlie the valley. Natural resources are harnessed and used judiciously. Jack's Point has its own water supply and waste water systems.
Jack’s Point has become a sought-after destination for people looking for genuine experiences in a beautiful unspoilt place. Homeowners, guests and workers all contribute to the success of this community as decision-makers and vision-keepers.
At the heart of Jack's Point is the Village, located in a naturally sheltered bowl with a protected microclimate. All the buildings, roads and features of the Village have been positioned to take maximum advantage of its sunny northern exposure. A mountain tarn originally sat within this natural gathering place and has been replaced by the 10-acre Lake Tewa, fed by Lake Wakatipu. The layout of the Village and residential neighbourhoods is designed to work with the contours of the land, while providing each space with its own clear purpose.
The mountainous landscape surrounding Jack’s Point formed by hundred-million-year-old rockfaces, rolling hills, tussock grasses and clear waters of Lake Wakatipu provide the inspiration for the built environment.
An exceptional landscape like Jack's Point deserves exceptional architecture, and some of New Zealand’s best architects have designed bold, simple structures that reflect and blend with the natural surroundings.
