If character homes appeal and you want the chance to live sustainably just minutes from town, this remarkable artist's property overlooking the Port and Haven may win your heart.

Organic gardens with prolific production and rambling shell-strewn paths surround this lovely villa facing the sun and exuding peace and tranquillity.

Tucked down a right of way, there is a solid, farmhouse feel about this 1176 square metre cityside property with a sheltered micro-climate where bananas and avocados thrive.

The home is on two levels with 210sqm of spacious rooms. Two large bedrooms on the main living level open to an enclosed veranda. An appealing bay window lounge gives a sea view while the open plan kitchen/dining area opens to huge decks. Downstairs is a surprising, large suite of rooms, offering studio/workspace, huge storage, bathroom, and a large bedroom.

Options abound for the use of this unique home - B&B income, perhaps, or work-from-home. The home and property infrastructure is solid and well presented, mixing practical garden, storage, and relaxation areas with creative verve.

Over 15 years, the sculptor owner has developed organic garden areas throughout the section, planting more than 40 varieties of fruit and nut trees as well as extensive vege plots. More than two-thirds of household food comes from the garden.

The house itself is a delight with its original features; rimu floors and original doors, bay windows and coloured and stained glass. A super-efficient Fisher log burner provides cosy warmth.

It thrives in summer and winter, with its sun-bathed huge decks facing north-east, giving wide views to eastern Nelson hillsides and to the ever-interesting activities of the Port. Beyond, is the shining Tasman Bay.

The house and gardens will have huge appeal for buyers seeking a practical, beautiful sanctuary within minute of town with multiple options for families and couples.
