Rosa Cristina - Perfect Location, Perfect Home 

4 Rosa Cristina Way TPP 2

4 Rosa Cristina Way TPP 7

4 Rosa Cristina Way TPP 19In a private and tranquil cul de sac of only three other homes off The Wood’s Grove Street, there’s 240 m2 of space here with four bedrooms (or three plus study).

Built to modern standards in 2007 and finished to a high spec, this inner city home enjoys pride of place only a few minutes’ walk to town.

Coved ceilings, a high-end Miele kitchen, comprehensive, high grade wool batt insulation throughout the house (and even in the interior walls) and the best of tapware, carpets and Italian tiling are other features of this impressive home.

Special features include a 3m high timber-ceiling lounge with concert hall acoustic quality, solar-heated hot water, a huge master bedroom and two separate patios to enjoy Nelson’s enviable climate.

The home has been designed to incorporate the very best of low maintenance building materials, and special attention to detail has created a home of flair and style.



City Heights - A home of gracious beauty

If you are looking for a home that epitomizes the very best of this gorgeous city, then this is most likely your dream home.

Nestled beautifully into a well-established, north-facing section of 2040 square metres (half an acre), the substantial home offers privacy, all-day sun, and some of the most prized views in the region – views that sweep across a wide panorama of native bush, Tasman Bay all the way out to Separation Point, and at night the twinkling lights of the Nelson city-scape.

When you return home each day, up this private lane, the world (or at least the city) is at your feet from your very private residence. You will enjoy the feel of living in the country, and yet you’re only a few short minutes’ drive to the city centre.

The home is built with an exceptional eye for detail and you can have confidence you will own a home of superb quality.

Not only does central heating and double glazing come as standard, but there is an extensive list of high quality fittings and chattels designed to make this the most enjoyable home you have ever lived in.

This is truly the perfect entertainer – outdoor living is sun-kissed and sheltered, and formal and informal living work perfectly for either a quiet night in or hosting friends and guests.

Dazzling coastal views and impeccable quality infuse this charming home with endless serenity – for the first time ever this is your chance to own it. 



Grove Street - Easy lifestyle location 

1 6 Grove St 151 6 Grove St 21 6 Grove St 10

Convenience is key for this pearl of a home.

At 90 square metres, it is perfectly formed, and situated with both the ‘walk to town convenience’ and the ‘peace and quiet’ that comes from living at the Trafalgar Park end of Grove Street.

Being the front of a row of three gives you not only an off-street, internal-access carport, but a storage shed and garden to call your own. Inside there are two good sized rooms, both with built in storage, and immaculately maintained bathroom and kitchen. Living is bright and comfortable, exactly as it should be.

This is the home for those looking to make the most of all this city has to offer when you live and work in the midst of it.

Alternatively, those looking to invest will understand the eternal appeal this property has to tenants - quiet, easy maintenance and true inner-city.
