Serenity and style in the city


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

12pm Tues 26 Mar 2019

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

The first time the owners of 64 Bronte Street walked through its front door; even before they had seen the upper level, they agreed: "we could happily live here."

Drawn in by the superb architectural features, beautiful rimu internal joinery, stylish slate tiles and a beautiful staircase, they immediately felt an atmosphere of serenity and peace in this river-side inner-city home. That day, it became 'the one'.

Designed by architect Bill Revell, the 101sqm two-storey house sits well back from Bronte Street's eastern end, nestled in a pretty tree-lined lane alongside the Brook Stream. The inner city is just a 12-minute walk away, as are some wonderful walking and running tracks, including the Centre of New Zealand and around the Maitai River to several popular swimming holes.

Clad in Hebel natural stone-coloured plaster and horizontal cedar panelling in contrasting ebony, this home is both contemporary and stylish.

A well-appointed kitchen, elegant rimu internal joinery finished with satin-chrome handles, slate-tile flooring and recently-laid charcoal carpet are just some of the features that make it noticeably 'high end' throughout.

A magnificent atrium in the lounge, featuring beautiful native rimu beams and rimu-framed windows, allows in sunlight and warmth. Windows throughout are double-glazed and there is under-floor heating in the kitchen and bathroom and a wonderfully efficient heat-pump in the lounge; its heat rising in the atrium to warm the second floor.

Though technically designated as a one-bedroom house, there is a spacious and airy room upstairs which offers the versatility of being furnished as a second bedroom, second lounge or even a large study or library.

Every single space in this home is supremely private. There are no neighbouring homes facing the house or its grounds. Its concrete foundations include an earthquake strengthening Ribcraft Floor Slab, detailed on the architectural plans which will remain with the house.

A surprisingly-expansive decking area is private and well-fenced from the Bronte Street lane. The owners have made the most of this spacious sun-trap, celebrating the last five Christmases here with their extended family. The kitchen, too, is so well-appointed and thoughtfully-designed; catering for a recent family wedding was stress-free.
