Synonymous with style and luxury, penthouses are the ultimate in contemporary living.
Maybe it’s the allure of being on top of the world. Perhaps it’s the appeal of a private city oasis. Or it could be the spectacular views penthouses are revered for.
Whatever the case may be, penthouses are for many, the ideal way to live – whether as a holiday retreat or full-time residence.
People have been enjoying Penthouse apartments since the 1920s, or “The Roaring Twenties” as they were known – the period when economic growth catalysed a construction boom in New York City.
The high demand for living in urban areas combined with economic wealth led to the inception of luxury apartments on the top floor (or floors) of a building.
The trend quickly caught on and spread to other parts of the world – and demand for penthouse apartments has remained strong to this day.
This spectacular penthouse in Nelson which I have just had the pleasure of listing, is no exception.
Located in Nelson’s renowned Wakefield Quay, with expansive sea views, yet just a short distance from town, this penthouse has infinite appeal.
With two levels, three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, garaging, and a fabulous modern kitchen, this chic abode is equipped with all the mod cons whilst capturing entirely the beauty of Nelson’s waterfront.
Step out from the living and dining areas onto the balconies where carefully chosen plants and hedges provide added privacy. An automatic irrigation system is set up so you can travel off shore and know all is well.
The master suite features its own en-suite and dressing space which has been designed with plenty of storage, just great!
The apartment has underfloor heating throughout, reverse cycle air conditioning and a heat pump which will assure you will never go cold in winter and will keep you cool in the summer.
Quality blinds and designer linen drapes have been carefully chosen to accentuate the beautiful interior decor throughout and two large extendable awnings provide shade for you while relaxing outside in the sun.
