What is Hanleys Farm
Hanleys farm is a new residential housing development located at the foot of the Remarkables approximately 13k outside Queenstown. It neighbours the exclusive Jacks Point residential development.
The development is approximately 561 hectares of land that is broken into sections ranging from 400m2 to over 1000m2.


Hanley’s Farm is located at Jack Hanley Drive, Hanley’s Farm, Queenstown. Hanley’s Farm offers residents a rare opportunity to build their forever home in a breath-taking location. Surrounded by The Remarkables and is just a few minutes’ drive from the iconic Lake Wakatipu.

Why we love Hanley’s Farm
Do we need to mention the Queenstown area, the gem of New Zealand? The spectacular views over the Remarkables. The thoughtful urban planning that has community front of mind. There are so many reasons to love Hanley’s farm.
On top of that, there is easy access to the rapidly expanding Frankton Shopping area and Queenstown Airport but keeping an affordable price point.
From an Architectural Design perspective, the amazing backdrop of the Remarkables, and the sheer ruggedness and beauty of the area makes it incredibly fun to design peoples forever homes.

Design Review & Guidelines
As Hanleys farm is located within one of Queenstown’s most spectacular natural settings a design review process is in place to ensure the residential architecture complements that setting. The Design Review process is intended to promote design cohesion throughout the development and surrounding areas.

Property Development in Queenstown

Guidelines include house positioning & street setbacks, roof pitch & shape, building materials & colour palette and landscaping. There are a few things that need to be taken into account before your Queenstown development commences including that construction of all dwellings must be completed within a 12-month period. There are also requirements around screening and what can be visible externally (I.e. plumbing, TV Antennae & Satellite dishes, Bin, Clothes lines & campervans). An example of the guidelines can be found here. Please note, guidelines vary from site to site and do change over time so please ensure you have the latest version.
At Nala Studios we are very well versed with development design guidelines and requirements. We’ll be able to step you through the process while still ensuring you have a beautiful architecturally designed Queenstown home.
