Bellevue Heights

Bellevue House sits high on the Tahunanui Hills overlooking the beach and Tasman Bay beyond. Located on a steep site with strict planning rules and challenging geotechnical conditions, a clever design was required.

Tony Karsten created a strikingly modern home with an impressive cantilevered design. Standing inside the floor to ceiling windows of the cantilevered living room you feel as though you are floating high above the ground with a bird’s eye view of Tahunanui Beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed working on this project with our wonderful team and fabulous clients, Nicky and Paul Francis. 

Belleview House received a commended award in the 2020 Nelson/ Marlborough ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Regional Awards.

Designed by Karsten Architectural Design – KAD.


“We chose Jason Gardiner builders to build our home and then a commercial property in Nelson as we were wanting a quality product and knew they had done quality houses previously.

Another big decision factor was who they and the team were. With building being a close relationship, we knew we wanted a team that we could work well with. They made the process completely enjoyable and helped us with making good decisions throughout the build

The end results we completely love. The build quality is excellent and overall build experience great”
