For Buying or Selling Nelson Property

Two New Listings

The rain might be bucketing down right now but the sun shone for our vendors of 276 Rutherford Street, Nelson at lunchtime - we sold that property at auction and we do extend our congratulations to the sellers and the successful bidder.

We have two new listings today. The first is a home with an exceptional outlook at 101 Quebec Road, Nelson. There are no open homes before mid-January - please call us asap if you would like to get through. The RV is $495,000 but it‘s a little light for what the property offers.

The second is at 117 Tipahi Street, Nelson. This is a sound home with a very spacious garage and a big section, where we will be selling by negotiation above $300,000. Again, please call us asap if you‘d like to get through.

Don‘t forget 17 Shelbourne Street, Nelson - if you‘re wanting a spacious family home and would prefer to live inner city you can be opening your Christmas presents in your new home at this address.

Have a great week.

About Nelson

Nelson is internationally renowned for its unsurpassed natural beauty‚ its pleasant Mediterranean-style climate - sheltered from cold southerly weather, varied recreational activities and diverse cultural opportunities. Taken together‚ these provide a quality of life in Nelson unexcelled by any area of its size in the world.

It is less expensive to live in Nelson than in most metropolitan areas in New Zealand, and the proportion of families who live in their own home and of adults with tertiary qualifications is higher than the national average (2006 NZ Census).

Hailed as one of New Zealand’s most ‘liveable’ cities by Lonely Planet, Nelson is a bright, optimistic, worldly town, arranged around a flat grid on Tasman Bay. Nelson’s streets are dotted with beautiful Victorian houses, with a selection of Buddhist centres, naturopaths, yoga studios and galleries. Artsy wanderers mooch between cafés and coffee-carts, ducking into the Bridge St bars or poetry readings in bookshops. Beyond the urban fringe the coast and hills offer a plethora of activities, both relaxed and adrenalin-charged.

The Nelson region, extending west into the Tasman region, is a top destination for travellers to New Zealand – and for locals too. With more sunny days than anywhere else in the country, brilliant beaches and superb national parks (Kahurangi, Nelson Lakes and Abel Tasman) there’s plenty here to keep you occupied (or to lull you into sun-soaked sedation). The region is also home to a progressive, offbeat community of artists and winemakers.

It is the people that make Nelson the appealing city it really is. Family values and a strong sense of local community underpin day-to-day life in the region. We value our history and tradition, but we also welcome newcomers and the rich diversity they bring to our lives.

I am a relative newcomer myself, having lived most of my years in the North Island. However I am also convinced that Nelson is the best city in New Zealand for the ideal quality of life.
