Waterfront Haven Offers Best Of Both Worlds

Waterfront Haven Offers Best Of Both Worlds In The Marlborough Sounds

Imagine having the best of both worlds - - fresh mussels just off your doorstep from the adjacent Marlborough Sounds, with one of the best wine regions minutes down the road.

This is possible from a peaceful, private haven on a 1113m2 site in Belvue Bay which offers rare road and water access. North facing and spread over three levels with large living areas opening out to spacious decking with unobstructed views of the Marlborough Sounds and bush, it provides the ultimate lifestyle.

According to Harveys Picton owner, Vicki Eastgate, the Marlborough Sounds “undervalued for many years has recently been discovered as a popular destination offering an exceptional lifestyle.

“This property is within commuting distance to world class wineries, gourmet dining, bush walks and crystal clear waterways. What better way to invest in the future,” she says.

Vicki says the property market is still alive and well in the region, with Marlborough receiving positive publicity from the vibrant viticulture and mussel industry.

“At this time of the year there is a lot of interest from overseas purchasers looking to move to a safe environment to raise children and who are seeking a lifestyle change,” she says. “We’ve also had numerous enquiries from North Islanders looking to move south for the lifestyle.”

“Properties like this one are hard to find and are in demand by discerning purchasers looking for properties with x factors including north facing, with road and beach access. People are prepared to pay over the million dollar mark for the right property,” she says.
