Feel the love!


Anyone with romance in their heart will find magic when they see this 1960s original packed with character; so privately sited within protective gardens with elevated sea and mountain views.

This is a rare one-owner property, its special qualities and much-loved grounds now in need of new energy to restore them to their charming best.

Tucked away above the street along a private right-of-way shared with two other homes, it sits nestled among the trees with open views over Tasman Bay and Tasman Mountains.

With its 759sqm near-flat section and garden nooks, it has been a children's delight, a family home now ready for its second owners. With up to five bedrooms (3 double, 2 single) plus office, it feels much larger than its given 140sqm floor space.

The house design and style are testament to its avant-garde owners of the day who themselves designed a very untypical 1960s home with high, raked living room ceilings of exposed timbers and Lee Valley stone.

A glass conservatory - a true winter's day blessing - and an extended, split-level rear section with the master bedroom were added as the family grew.

The children climbed trees here and played hide and seek in the gardens which surround the home, and walked to Enner Glynn primary school. Many joyful gatherings of family and friends have been hosted over the years. All those pleasures are available to new owners who will also value the proximity of both Nelson and Stoke.

The kitchen and bathroom, plus a separate toilet, are original; very useable as is but where new owners can quickly add modernity as well as value. The house is warmed by a consented log burner and two heat pumps. Former ducted heating is no longer operable.

Garden reinstatement and landscaping will make an immediate difference as will updating the interior.

There is excellent parking space, with a 38sqm garage, carport, caravan or boat space behind the garage. The house is mostly weatherboard-clad with an iron roof.

Buyers will see the enormous potential in this sought after location.
