This is an iconic Taupo property, built by Sid Lane, a prominent Taupo businessman who regularly used the rear lawn as his private helipad. Our family lived in Hawkes Bay and we frequented Taupo which is central and nearby. Taupo is a popular holiday destination which appeals to New Zealanders and international visitors. If you want to enjoy a fabulous Taupo experience this property is luxurious and uniquely positioned.
Superbly positioned at the end of the public reserve that runs along the lake front from the town center. However once inside the glazing ensures you enjoy a tranquil and secure haven with the most spectacular Lake Taupo vistas. Comfortably furnished with 4 brand new large leather lounge suites, thermal heating throughout you can relax in comfort yet have convenience of a location close to town and all the key outdoor lake activities.
Our two families had a brilliant holiday at 159 LakeTerr. It couldn't have been better. There were only 6 adults and 1 child so there was lots of room. The dining space was perfect for the caterer to do the wedding feast and the outdoors made for the most beautiful setting for our daughters wedding. The photos could be of a celebrity in an exclusive remote venue and here were we just a walk or bike ride from all the facilities in Taupo! I would recommend 159 Lake Terr. To anyone
From the panoramic views from BOTH floors lined floor to ceiling with windows overlooking the lake and mountains beyond, to the Heated Pool overlooking the water, to the quick friendly response and readiness to to anything needed to make our stay comfortable by the owners and their close by family members, this home is a Gem. Just a 15 minute walk or less than 5 minute drive along the lake to town and a two cute little coffee shops on the water just minutes walk along the lake away, we found it the perfect place to be quiet amongst the energy of the town. The outdoor pool being heated makes for great night swims, and the lake is just minutes away if you need a cool down. There are even thermal springs that run under the house to the lake which make a natural hot tub (while also being utilized to heat the pool and the house - very environmentally friendly!) Large enough for a good sized family or two (two full kitchens, one on each floor) while offering plenty of areas to tuck away into a quiet corner when that is needed. Book it - you won't regret it!
The location of this luxury home is unique. Adjacent to public land and right on the lakefront you can walk along the lake to town. Close the front door and you have your own privacy in a breath taking setting on the lake with views to the mountains. Be conveniently located close to the action down town and along Lake Terrace, the center of Taupo's lake entertainment activity.
