A seven-bedroom home with unobstructed views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables features in the online property pages of the Wall Street Journal. “They’ve got quite a bit of land, a stream [and] a waterfall running from the top to the bottom of the property,” listing agent Terry Spice of Luxury Real Estate New Zealand said.

The property is listed at $2.5 million.
