Retreat amongst the birdsong


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

Closes 12pm Mon 11 Feb 2019

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

Blissful country living amid beautiful native bush with breath-taking sea views need not mean a retreat from 'civilisation'; not with this extraordinary property less than 15 minutes easy drive to Nelson.

Families with horses or other animals who value peace and serenity will feel they're in heaven every time they return to this unique 2.6-hectare property. The birdsong, bush surrounds and lofty lookout to sea will quickly soothe any work day stress.

The highly regarded Hira Kindergarten, Hira Primary and Clifton Terrace Primary are all close by. For mountain bikers and walkers, there's potential access to fantastic trails - the current owners can use a neighbour's access into Sharland's Forest.

The two-level house, artfully designed and built to high, sustainable standards in 2005 by Ecotect, has four bedrooms upstairs, three bathrooms and a choice of three lounge areas means everyone can find their own getaway space.

With its thick, insulated concrete floor, double-glazing, wool insulation and passive energy design, it's the warmest home the owners have lived in; a central log fire quickly heating the whole house in winter.

Down a lane away from the house is a self-contained eco retreat; charming in its serene, private setting. Here's a healthy source of extra income - or a place for older children, in-laws or a home based business. The attractive, modern "Kanuka Huts" is off-grid but nonetheless extremely comfortable for its eco benefits. They share the same water scheme as the main house.

A fully-fenced, flat paddock is ideal for keeping horses or other livestock, and there's a modern stable nearby plus a smaller, fenced paddock. There are two hen houses with runs and a large storage shed/workshop.

This truly is a very special property with that rare mix of absolute peace and privacy in amazing natural surroundings but handy to all of Nelson city's attractions.
