Gracious and grand on Collingwood Street

Soundly built 86 years ago on one of the most elevated spots on the beautiful Grampian foothills, this has been a much loved home to the same family for 16 years. As their children have grown and moved away, they are ready to down size which means there is now a rare opportunity to own one of Nelson's gracious 1930s residences.

Surrounded by native birdsong,numerous fruit trees/berries and basking in all day sun, both levels of this warm four bedroom home boast breath taking sea and mountain views, including glorious sunrises and sunsets and ever changing views over the surrounds.

Extensive renovations and additions, included installing full insulation under the entry level floor and roof space.

In addition to a new Coloursteel roof, a stylish Kwila deck with glass balustrades and a heated swimming pool were installed. Inside, the kitchen has been completely re modelled, as have the bathrooms. All bar one are ensuite. The current owners have retained magnificent lead light windows, an elegant 1930s staircase, original rimu tongue and groove floorboards and solid timber doors, quality carpets and several sets of triple fold windows which open many of the rooms to 'the great outdoors'.

Positioned right alongside the pretty, gated entrance to the Grampians Walkway, the private garden is abundant in mature trees, including a magnolia grandiflora, a huge camellia and native ti kouka (cabbage trees). A rock paving garden path meanders between a lofty pair of kowhai their abundant bright yellow flowers a favorite of tui, korimako (bellbird), piwakawaka (fantail) and numerous tauhou (wax-eyes). Kereru (NZ native pigeons) spend much of their days simply sitting in the trees. A long tailed cuckoo, shining cuckoo and Kaka have also been spotted 'taking a moment' on this peaceful property.

The expansive woodland style garden includes a small crystal clear pond, constantly fed from a natural spring in the Grampian Ranges, which provides endless irrigation for the garden.
