magine living in a place where you are able to cycle or walk to the beach, play a round of golf, visit local cafes and eateries and enjoy a brand new neighbourhood that offers you a superb and unrivalled lifestyle. This is the vision developer Carsten Buschkuehle and his family are making into reality with Tasman Bay Estates, one of the most exciting and innovative developments the Nelson-Tasman region has ever seen.

96 sections in stages

Comprised of 96 sections stretching across 178 hectares of coastal farmland off Aporo Road, located between Tasman Village and Ruby Bay, this innovative new opportunity will place its residents right at the centre of the best assets the region has to offer. Tasman Bay Estates is more than just a development; it’s an unprecedented new lifestyle hub making a positive contribution to the area. If you decide to call this place home, there will be much to be proud of. Firstly, a comprehensive and 78

meticulous planning process has resulted in a vision for this village that is sensitive to its surroundings both ecologically and culturally, and is the catalyst for significant restoration of waterways and the land, an important concept to base a development on. “Open green spaces will make up 70 percent of the village,” Buschkuehle says, “which means every section will be spacious and private with the convenience of walkways and cycleways connecting the entire area, including

the famous Great Taste Trail, which runs right through the development.”

Sensitive and spacious development

There will also be direct beach access for residents via a beautiful walk down a coastal gully being planted and maintained in native vegetation. Adding to its eco-credentials, Tasman Bay Estates embodies a commitment to native riparian planting throughout. Lush examples of New Zealand’s best and most suited native flora are etched into the consent for the whole development and
