Penthouse plus Self-Contained Luxury Accommodation The interior of this William Houlker (a prominent Nelson architect) Art Deco building has undergone an extensive but sympathetic refurbishment to provide a sophisticated and spacious living environment of four independent apartments. Architecturally-designed living spaces offer an independent Owner’s Penthouse accommodation in the heart of the city, and three additional apartments that you may choose to operate in a variety of business models, with spacious studio and two-bedroom options. Nelson City is blessed with two of New Zealand's very best schools; the Nelson College for Girls is directly adjoining to 404 Trafalgar, and the Boys College is a five minute walk. This unique and wonderfully practical building has a location in Nelson’s enviable 'Dress Circle' and offers a family home plus a small business ripe for expansion, and could be easily operated by a married couple with no staff. The owner’s apartment has two-car garaging and a workshop fitted out for the practical man, and a large flat roof terrace with incredible district views. Renowned for its food, wine and art, Nelson is situated in a part of the country that delivers New Zealand's highest sunshine hours. From the doorstep of 404 Trafalgar Apartments you are just a five minute stroll to Nelson's very best shopping, cafés, bars and restaurants. With three of the country’s most popular National Parks within easy driving distance, boasting golden sand beaches, turquoise blue waters, alpine scenery and skiing in winter, these luxury apartments offer the perfect blend of urban and resort lifestyles. This is a unique opportunity to own a Nelson landmark building that gives both a high-quality lifestyle residence and a small, family run, business.
New Zealand is a nation that welcomes overseas nationals to live, work and invest. Many expatriates, particularly those from Australia, U.S., Europe and increasingly China and Korea, are drawn to the largest city, Auckland, which has the country’s priciest housing stock.

There is nothing quite like 404 in the rest of the Nelson property catalogue; a multi-use residential property with immediate walking access to the City centre, a very quiet and high heritage neighbourhood, and views North to the sea with views South into the Grampians hills. The property appealed to us on many levels, and especially for its understated and practical aesthetic.
