ST CHARLES, Chatham Islands.
A wonderful opportunity to live in an area considered to be one of the most beautiful and sunniest regions in New Zealand. Located on a the beach called Ruby Bay at the very top of the South Island, this elegant two story home with its open floor plan and wide verandas (up and down) overlook both gardens and this gorgeous beach. This warm home redone in 2008, with its Ralph Lauren Bermuda-like colors and wood bleached ceilings, has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, library, living room, dining area and kitchen. On a large lot of over 16000 sq ft you will enjoy all of it and more with its lovely lawns, gardens and beach. This charming home has not only been enhanced with all the luxuries of an American home but as well you have the luxury of looking out to views of the ocean or gardens from almost every room. Entering out from the living room, with its double high windows and bi-fold stack doors, you can dine out on the large covered veranda looking out to the ocean. Nearby the town of Nelson has great wineries, art galleries, potteries and a short drive across a bridge to Rabbit Island with large sandy beaches, great swimming and picnicking. Fantastic wine, beautiful weather and a short 20 min flight to or from the capital of Wellington, what a way to live or vacation!!! via Prestige MLS
