It's A Kind Of Magic
Do you want to live on a stunning waterfront haven? Amongst the bush and birdsong and stroll down your path to the tide? Sit on the deck watching the sunset over glistening Cable Bay then walk through your garden to the water's edge for a moonlight dip?
Cable Bay is an easy 20-minute drive from Nelson City. The small friendly community has a local cafe and The Cable Bay Adventure Park is just down the road - which is fast becoming a mountain bikers paradise. The clear water at Cable Bay beach offers some of the best swimming in Nelson. Plus there's plenty of walkways to explore for the keen hiker, or launch your paddleboard or kayak from the bottom of the garden at high tide. Across the estuary Delaware Bay is a popular spot for surfing and fishing. Walking on the estuary at low tide is a lovely treat for both you and your dog. This home is a bird watcher's paradise with Kereru, Tui and Bellbirds frequent visitors while Spoonbills, Herons and Terns feed in the estuary below and see if you can spot a stingray gliding past at high tide.
The two-storey house designed by award winning architect David Wallace fits perfectly into the surroundings and sits nicely below the road, hidden, tranquil and private. On coming into the home the open plan kitchen, dining and living rooms look out over Cable Bay and the estuary and have access to the decks on the front. The stunning views from every aspect invite a sense of space, relaxation and calm. The second living room to the back of the home is perfect for a media room or kids hangout. There's also a mezzanine for yoga practice, snuggling down with a book or enjoying an afternoon snooze. No one would know where you are… which we all know can be a bonus at times. The bedrooms downstairs open up to the expansive landscaped garden and patio, and the privacy is just amazing. An added bonus is our vendors have just completed the bathroom renovation and the new bathroom is simply gorgeous right down to the underfloor heating. The sleepout hiding in the trees is a great place for the kids to play, or make use of the power and wireless router to create the perfect home office away from the bustle of everyday life. There's even an outdoor shower for rinsing off after seaside adventures, a chook run and a veggie patch. This property really does have a kind of magic, come and have a look for yourself.
