About
Description
Sussex House is a late Victorian town house (1880) five minutes walk from Nelson city centre. The setting is one of peace and tranquility as our property overlooks the Maitai River. Nelson's botanical gardens More neighbor our property, and the Suter Art Gallery is less than a 5 minute walk. We are also a mere 1 km walk to the Centre of New Zealand. As of February 2014, Sussex House is under the ownership of Heather D'Arcy. Less
