288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

The incredibly hard work has been done to make this a little oasis of rural peace just five minutes from town - but the owners' regretful move offers new owners an incredible opportunity to reap the benefits.

With pet sheep in the paddock above, stunning birdlife in the garden from the nearby Brook Sanctuary and a view of manuka-clad hillsides, the 5,605sqm (0.5ha or 1.38 acre) property offers living naturally in a warm, contemporary home.

For the owners, the feeling is like being on a permanent, blissful camping holiday.

With the land, all landscaped and planted with native grasses and flax, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, separate sleepout and studio, there's so much living on offer.

The 162sqm house is designed for easy, family living, contemporary in style and warm and comfortable with double glazing and good insulation throughout.

What was a paddock covered in gorse is now an oasis of grasses, flaxes and other natives. The owner lugged 350 tonnes of stone for paths. These now criss-cross the property, giving access to all corners and making it easy to maintain.

In the paddock above the house, two pet sheep keep the grass down and there's a tree with a swing.

Outside the house is a flat lawn for play and areas for evening barbecues.

Grow heaps of produce in the huge, irrigated vege garden areas. Already there are peach, pear and apple and citrus trees and more could be added.

The location is a delight with its birdlife and balmy days, Brook reserve and bike trails nearby, so close to town, shops and schools. Nelson Central primary, St Josephs, Hampden St and the colleges are all handy.

The insulated sleepout with its own access and parking offers income opportunity while the double glazed garden shed could also be a hobby room or workshop.

If you yearn for your own little piece of country in a friendly community of like-minded people, this may be the answer.
