Secret, Romantic, Maitai Valley Cottage


Auction (unless sold prior)

12pm, Wed 2 Oct 2019

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson

She's been slumbering behind her Camellia and Ivy-covered walls for years. Passers-by wondered, dreamed of what lay beyond. They never knew that here, less than 8 minutes from Nelson's CBD lay the jealously guarded 'sanctum-sanctorum' for New Zealand's first woman of high-finance and big-business. Her "Mossbank" basked here in sunny seclusion beside a limpid pool, her gardens a-splash with vibrant colour, ringed around by native bush, the air soft with birdsong and the Maitai Rivers' happy murmur. Fine food and wine, sparkling company, piano recitals by the hostess on her baby-grand, laughter, and the luxury of time without interruption. But that was then, for the lady has gone, with Mossbank left to slumber-on alone. She is tired. The pool is now a pond, yet the flowers, the privacy, and her ambiance remain. Today Mossbank is for sale and must be sold. But there is no sadness here, for as you enter her quiet domain you too may feel her romance still, and maybe fall beneath her spell as you reach for your tools and your brushes to awaken her again, as you should.
