This thoughtfully designed and built home on an elevated 1036m2 site is perfect as a holiday bach or a comfortable permanent home. Only a short drive from Motueka Township, the home is accessed from the road by a private shared drive. It perfectly captures the outstanding views across Tasman Bay to D'Urville Island and the Nelson Ranges. In the main living zones, natural timber beams and ceilings blend with practical cork floor covering that flows throughout the home, while the aluminium joinery echoes the zincalume exterior cladding, providing a stylish contrast. The first floor offers a modern kitchen with quality appliances and practical stainless steel work surfaces; open plan living areas with direct access to the large double garage and laundry; a linen cupboard and a convenient WC with vanity. A charming balcony leading off the diner is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the bay, while an intimate front courtyard flowing through folding patio doors from the lounge captures the sun for much of the day. On the ground floor the master bedroom has its own timber deck, again with views across Little Kaiteriteri to the Tasman Sea. A walk-in robe provides good storage and a sliding door from the bedroom gives direct access to the family bathroom. Imagine the luxury of relaxing in the claw foot bath at the end of a long day - from where you can savour the view of the bay when it's bathed in moonlight! A further queen size bedroom with built-in wardrobe is a quiet haven and will delight your house guests, and for everyones comfort a wall mounted heat pump in the internal hallway keeps the home warm and cosy when the weather turns cooler. In the evenings the twinkling lights of distant Nelson set a magical tone; the perfect backdrop to entertaining or just quietly relaxing with a glass of your favourite tipple. So whether you are looking for a lock and leave weekend wonder or an enduring apartment-style home, this bay side beauty has it all.
