Established in the gold rush of the 1860's Lye Bow represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a modern dwelling set in a special site of historic significance.
Lye Bow has the distinction of being the only residential property on the edge of the 80 acre Butchers Dam. Being in a landscape protection zone, it is somewhat unique.

In addition to the main dwelling the property features a 312 m2 shed large enough to accommodate 15 vehicles, the perfect man shed. Also an historic stone storehouse built approx 1890 by Lye Bow and a 1930's two bedroom Gardeners Residence.
In 2009 the current owners built the 274 m2 main dwelling featuring a schist, timber and Linea cladding in keeping with the property's natural environment. Boasting four large bedrooms, the master having ensuite and dressing room, separate lounge, open plan living, dining and kitchen area with large bench spaces, pantry & modern appliances including a fridge drawer.

"Central Otago is as much a place in people's hearts, as a region outlined on a map"
Central Otago is famous for it's weather. It is a place with very definite seasons. Alexandra celebrates the arrival of Spring with the original Blossom Festival, welcomes an abundance of visitors and holiday makers for the summer period and has the most amazing colours on display for autumn. Winter is not left out with the locals and visitors alike enjoying the fresh crisp air and sunshine for ice skating, curling and mountain biking.
Along with these things, there are also a number of sports facilities in the town. Squash courts, netball and tennis courts, rugby and athletics fields, bowling clubs, golf courses in both Alexandra and Clyde and many more activities to become involved with. We have a local branch of the Parent Centre and Toy Library also.
A very family oriented area with a lot of options for children. The town has 2 kindergartens, 3 primary schools, a very good high school and a number of day care facilities. There is also a Playcentre and primary school in the nearby township of Clyde.
Alexandra and Clyde feature something for everyone - young and old. Take a trip to visit us and see what there is for you.
