Queenstown is no stranger to luxury property — it’s long been a magnet for the discerning property buyer who likes to live or holiday in paradise all year round. With world-class skiing, golf courses, boating and hiking on your doorstep as well as high-end restaurants, spas and shopping, Queenstown is one of the best places in the world for outdoor excitement, relaxation and rejuvenation.
The Tiers Villas are designed with this covetable lifestyle in mind. We caught up with Will Taylor, project developer and founder at Alpha Properties, to learn more about what buyers can expect from Stage 6.
Will has lived in Queenstown since the age of 16 when he started out in the property industry. Since then, he’s made a name for himself with his vision of luxury and utilisation of local specialists who understand and love the Queenstown way of life and strive to reflect it in their work. He spends each day on-site as he taps into the talents of a diverse range of builders, designers and tradespeople — The Tiers Villas are a truly sublime result of the passions, skills and dedication of the Wakatipu’s best professionals.
“Locals can identify with the lifestyle we’re trying to accommodate for our buyers and they comprehend the trials and tribulations of building property in Queenstown,” says Will. “For example, a challenging mountainside site, like at The Tiers, will have the most incredible views in town — we’re happy to make our jobs a little harder to produce a truly outstanding final result.”
So Alpha Properties was quick to assess and jump on the opportunity when this site became available. The fantastic vista from high above Frankton Road was a key draw, and the team also knew the convenient location halfway between the vibrant CBD and international airport would suit the global market. Since then, Will’s overseen the building of six stages and 15 units — all showcasing the magnificent Wakatipu in its full glory.
While the views and floor-to-ceiling windows are still present in Stage 6, buyer feedback has played a big part in shaping changes in this release — each unit offers more space with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There’s double garaging, three floors and extensive storage throughout plus spacious outdoor areas at both the front and rear of the unit. And the specifications are even higher than the previous releases, catering to the strong demand for high-end apartment living in Queenstown.
Despite these alterations, the tone of the new Villas remain illustrative of Alpha Properties’ signature style. A light, flowing living dialogue is punctuated with robust cedar, concrete and steel construction. Strong, timeless, simple — every comfort and convenience has been considered to create homes that are both supremely beautiful and exceedingly practical.
With purchasers buying off plans, Will is able to work closely with buyers and bring them together with local interior designers to apply the perfect, tailored finishing touches in each home.
“We offer a bespoke, personalised service that most developers can’t,” says Will. “When we say “Living is all in the detail”, that applies to everything — including our level of service. A home at The Tiers Villas is more than just a property to buy — it’s a collaborative, enjoyable experience from start to finish.”
