• When Clayton Munting first saw the house at 403 Wakefield Quay, he knew it would be the perfect place for his young family to call home.

Munting purchased the property where Captain Arthur Wakefield first set up camp on the shores of the Nelson harbour for $1.435 million at auction on Saturday.

“I grew up in Nelson and my parents and sisters are there and I’ve now got a young wife and two year old son and so I wanted him to have a place to grow up and call home in Nelson.”
