'Rooftop' townhouse, city delight

Wanting to make the move to the enjoyment and ease of city-side living but not prepared to settle for the usual apartment offerings? Here's an outstanding townhouse that's truly distinctive.

With a large rooftop garden, 2.9-metre-high ceilings and unique construction quality using commercial-style tilt-panels, this artfully designed inner-city home is like no other in Nelson.

The "Rooftop Terraces" project won the 2019 New Zealand Institute of Architects Nelson-Marlborough award for multi-unit development.

The exclusive Collingwood Street enclave comprises just three homes, each with freehold title. Car entry is off Malthouse Lane, the gateway to riverside walks.

51A is one of the two street-front terraces, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and the wonderful rooftop third level giving panoramic views from the Grampians and across the city towards yacht masts in the marina.

The two-year-old home presents as new and is distinguished by its architectural style that incorporates decorative aluminium exterior panels. Inside, the exposed concrete wall spaces are a perfect palette for artworks.

You'll find quality fittings and attention to detail throughout, from lighting to joinery and appliances.

Peace and quiet can be expected in such a small, private project and there's the security of automated gate entry from the laneway. This just adds to the appeal for those who want to be able to lock-and-leave.

With lofty ceilings complemented by full-height doors, living here feels incredibly spacious and airy. The layout is appealing with the master bedroom and second bedroom on different levels; the master opening to a courtyard.

A lift well is incorporated should new owners wish to install an elevator.

Morning light pours in through skylights and large east-facing windows while sundowner drinks and evening BBQs can be enjoyed on the rooftop or the deck off the open plan kitchen/lounge.

This is true city living.
