L’amour Nest seduces buyers with live/work proposition in heart of city

A luxury chalet accommodation business and home are set to seduce buyers with a unique live-and-work proposition amid tranquil woodland in central Napier.

Nestled privately on Hospital Hill, the art-deco residence and adjoining accommodation business offer an air of natural seclusion within a short walk of the city centre, botanical gardens and Ahuriri village.

Designed for couples as well as larger groups, the L’amour Nest business is positioned as “the perfect offering for rejuvenation within nature”, with four contemporary guest chalets hidden in a private garden with thriving bird life.

Alongside it, a character three-bedroom home offers a comfortable residence for a new owner/manager.

The freehold land, buildings and business sustaining L’amour Nest, located at 6 and 8 Ormond Road, Hospital Hill, Napier, are being marketed for sale by Kristen Hines, Jodie Woodfield and Kerry Geange of Bayleys Napier.

The freehold going concern will be sold by way of a deadline sale closing on Tuesday 23 April, unless it is sold prior.

The chalets and home with a combined floor area of some 390 square metres are set over more than 5,800 square metres of hillside woodland gardens, across two freehold titles.

The sale includes extensive high-quality chattels, including furniture, fittings, appliances and tools, spanning the home, chalets and gardens.

“Together boasting a total of nine bedrooms, six bathrooms and six living areas between four guest chalets and the owner's residence, this is an ideal home-and-income proposition blending the convenience of city life with the serenity of country-style living,” Hines said.

“The property is situated along a quiet and desirable road on Hospital Hill. Its visitor appeal is heightened by its position near Napier’s world-renowned art-deco hub and Ahuriri village, and in easy reach of Hawke’s Bay Airport, cycle trails and beaches. Owners living here will also have access to excellent schools.

“Offering easy property access from its shared driveway, the generous off-street parking is a bonus in this no-exit exclusive street,” said Hines.

Woodfield said the three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence at 6 Ormond Road came with a spacious lawn, private gardens with pathways, and decking that flows from the home.

“This makes entertaining easy. Original features of the art-deco era, native timber flooring, three heat pumps, and a fire complement the tastefully finished interiors.

“Adjoining at 8 Ormond Road, L’amour Nest is an accommodation business with scope for growth. The contemporary chalets nestled into the woodlands environment exemplify accommodation with a point of difference,” said Woodfield.

Geange said a duo of one-bedroom chalets were elevated above the garden canopy allowing guests to relish the birdsong from the seclusion of their beautifully appointed room.

“Additionally, a duplex two-level chalet awaits interior finishing, providing a blank canvas for a new owner to personalise and style to their taste.

“The option is there to cater for larger groups with the four bedrooms, or close off the internal access, to convert to dual two-bedroom offerings. This chalet has been well-considered in its design, providing flexibility for catering to guest requirements,” said Geange.
