Intelligent expansive design and incomparable views captivate you from the moment you enter this brand new, lodge-styled home. Staggering vistas unfold in every direction, encompassing the Dovedale and Mouteka /Moutere Valleys, Western and Richmond Ranges, right out to Tasman Bay and of course Mount Arthur.
Certainly North American in style and proportion, the use of timber and stone throughout are a perfect complement to the mountainous locale. The linear layout and soaring windows maximise the sun, views, and light while an imported wooden joinery system is a beautiful and energy efficient point of difference. Features such as the double fireplace, open trusses and quality bathroom fixtures create a resort-feel, luxurious yet warm and welcoming. The master suite enjoys the premium view and evening sun, complimented with spacious his and her's dressing areas, and even an outdoor bath. The entertainer's kitchen with its maple joinery, and wide stone benchtops enjoys sublime views as well.
The 16 ha block has reticulated water to several hill paddocks. Fences and yards are in good condition with several stands of natives for shade. Plantings abound up the driveway however the landscaping around the house itself remains a blank canvas for a new owner, with a unique concept plan available to follow. A (unpermitted) two bedroom accommodation unit in the shed at the property's entrance is an appealing bonus for a rural buyer.
With enormous rainwater storage, water purification systems, hydronic underfloor heating, practical office and utility areas and a guest wing with separate access this home epitomises energy efficient and practical living, allowing work from home or B+B accommodation options. Upper Moutere and Dovedale are both convenient school options nearby, and the commute to Nelson city is a picturesque 40-45 minute drive.
