A record price has been fetched for a Queenstown Hill holiday home.

The award-winning four-bedroom St Andrews Park home sold this week for more than Queenstown Hill’s previous high — a home at The Peak that sold for $6.4 million in 2008.

The St Lukes Lane home — winner of the ‘New Zealand architect new home of the year’ award in the 2018 Trends International Design Awards — was designed for Aussie clients by Dunedin’s Gary Todd and built by local builder Brian Hill.

Named ‘Cascata’, it’s distinctive for a waterfall running through the garden and into the house, and for see-through glass walls.

It’s been rented out to holidaymakers from $11,000 a night.

Local NZ Sotheby’s International Realty’s Hadley van Schaik, who listed the property with colleague Gerard Bligh, says it’s been bought by an Aussie buyer, sight unseen, as a holiday home — another colleague, Mark Harris, was the buyer’s rep.

He did not want to reveal the exact price.

The home’s been sold fully furnished and it also comes with a 2018 Land Rover Discovery in the garage.
