Unique bay life, "house & garden" paradise


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

Closes 12pm, Tues 11 Dec 2018

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson

You must see to believe this magical piece of New Zealand; a postcard waterfront haven amid tranquil bush and bird song in utter privacy - all just 20 minutes easy drive to the city. Clad in beautiful dark-stained Lawson cypress, the house offers three bedrooms, one full bathroom plus second toilet, two lounge areas with window seats, separate TV room, study and a sleepout.

Wood pigeons rest on the majestic Nikau palm outside your kitchen window; tui squabble over the flax flowers throughout the garden while royal spoonbills and herons feed on the estuary. Launch your kayak at the bottom of the 916m² garden or sit back and savor views from sheltered decks.

Designed by award-winning architect David Wallace, the soaring ceilings in the open-plan living area with mezzanine floor are contrasted by more intimate spaces for quiet times with decks either side to suit wind and weather.

Native timbers - many recycled - are used throughout the house in joinery features as well as floors, doors and skirting boards. The house has storage space galore and is warmed by an approved log fire. From the new chef's kitchen you'll enjoy the sunrise over Delaware Bay and, in the evening, on the deck with a glass of wine, the sunset lighting Pepin Island.

Cable Bay is a coveted sanctuary, a collection of a limited number of houses and a neighbourly feel of like-minded people who enjoy company as well as privacy. The peace is so valued that locals have an understanding not to use power tools on Sundays!

This home is among the finest in the Bay, with the significant benefit of drive-on access - no steps to descend to reach your home, simply down the drive to the front gate and you're there. The house is distinguished by a curving roof line, a shape reflected in balustrading and the garden, professionally landscaped over the last three years. Large, specimen rocks and schist pavers are melded with railway sleeper timbers.
