‘Home of the Year’ Supreme Winner

12 October 2004

‘Home of the Year’ Supreme Winner on Market for First Time

Keen local through to international buyer interest is being shown through “huge website traffic” and phone enquiries for one of Nelson’s most outstanding properties boasting 180 degree elevated views of the Richmond Ranges, to Tasman Bay, across the Waimea Estuary to the Western Ranges.

The “superior home” on 3 Valhalla Drive was the New Zealand Supreme Winner in the 1998 Master Builder's Association Home of the Year and has come to the market for the first time since being built by its current owner.

Marketed by Fred Coe from Harcourts Nelson, the property is described as offering a rare combination of exceptional site, design, craftsmanship and panoramic views within 15 minutes drive of Nelson. “The simplicity of the house is such that in 20 years’ time the light, airy, peaceful style will not have dated.”

The large North facing 6,569 sqm flat to sloping “private park-like” setting enjoys urban, rural, sea and mountain views over Nelson. “The view is spectacular from one of the most elevated residential sites in the immediate area. Not many homes take in views of the Richmond Ranges, ships coming and going in the Bay and right round to the snow on Mount Arthur in Kahurangi National Park,” Mr Coe said.

The upper level includes a formal lounge and dining, retreat, family living, dining and kitchen, and terraces including a swimming pool. The main bedroom has ensuite/walk-in robe/ dressing console, plus guest room and bathroom. The lower level has two bedrooms, kitchen/living/ dining, study and lounge.
The property is being offered for sale by auction on 3 November 2004 and is being marketed nationwide.
