About our home

Well loved 130 yr old family home overlooking the port and the sea.

It is a 2 storey house with 1 double bedrooms downstairs and 2 single bedrooms upstairs in the eaves. There are two living areas, a separate kitchen, a separate laundry and a study (which will double as another bedroom). The house has a large veranda and a small unfenced garden and outside patio. We have open fires and burn wood.
The house is on a private driveway which we share with 4 others, garage and parking.


More about us

Where is it?


The house is located in the early settled part of the city around the port. 5 mins walk to the sea, 10 mins drive to a wonderfully child friendly beach and 5 mins to the city centre.

Nelson City is known for its cafes, vineyards and arts and crafts. There is a popular market held every Saturday morning. Nelson is the sunniest city in NZ with a population of 40,000, the city is part of the Nelson region (pop 80,000) that includes 3 National parks and some amazing beaches and coastal scenery. The region's neighbours include Marlborough (1.5 hrs drive) which is famous for its wine and the scenic Marlborough sounds.
