Falcon Brae, Nelson

A private luxury retreat perfectly positioned for all the major activities in the Nelson-Tasman Region.

Perched on a hilltop near Nelson and Abel Tasman on New Zealand’s South Island, this exclusive-use luxurious villa is perfect for families, groups of friends or those seeking total privacy. Accommodating up to 10 guests, Falcon Brae boasts spectacular 360-degree views over the mountains of Kahurangi National Park and the majestic Motueka River below and is located on 350 acres wedged between two rivers with a private forest and spectacular native bush walks.

Designed by a local architect, built by local craftspeople with native timber and stone, and featuring the work of local artists, this contemporary residence features a large central lounge area with a 5-metre ceiling, sunken bar, grand piano, media room, commercial kitchen and three dining areas. The large deck space overlooks the mountains and river, featuring a pool and outdoor heated spa, barbeque area for outdoor dining and entertaining with a shaded pergola. The “Games Den” houses gym equipment, a pool table, table tennis, darts and a games table.

Falcon Brae is completely "off grid" with solar panels providing all the power required.

For outdoor adventure, there’s plenty to do. Just a short walk from the property, some of New Zealand's (and the world's) best fly fishing can be had in the Motueka River, known for its population of oversized wild brown trout. Guests also have access to a helicopter for scenic heli-tours over the stunning Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes and Kahurangi national parks. Heli-hiking, heli-fishing and helicopter transfers from Nelson airport are also available.
