City-side, hidden garden villa


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

Closes 12pm Tue 23 Oct 2018

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

Be prepared to be captivated as you peek over the high picket fence into the magic garden setting and the sight of the century-old grand lady within, awaiting a new family to cherish.

A home of this character and in such a private garden is a rare treat in The Wood, tucked away off the road and so close to town. What's more, this gorgeous old home has undergone a sensitive refurbishment, leaving new owners with no major capital spending to make.

Glowing rimu floor boards, 3.2-metre-high ceilings and airy, sun-warmed rooms make this traditional villa a joy with four bedrooms and two renovated bathrooms and inviting living spaces.

The current owners discovered the 1911 date "signature" left by the builders during the renovations which make this grand dame so liveable and loveable.

Renewed wiring and plumbing, re-lined walls, new insulation, paint and lighting, an updated kitchen, two heat pumps, a Smart Vent air transfer system and an approved log fire give contemporary comfort.

The master bedroom opens to a lovely sun room and the family area has French doors opening wide to the deck and rear garden for lazy summer days and barbecue nights.

With a 797m² section, this is a property for families and those who love their garden with room to entertain guests. A tree house and in-ground trampoline will have children wide-eyed and ready for play and there's room aplenty for serious vege gardeners.

Here's a city-fringe property with unusual parking space; a double garage at the front plus a parking space and an area that could be used for a campervan or boat.

For handymen and women, there's a huge area under the house with full height room for workshop, wine cellar or just a massive amount of space for all the household paraphernalia. There's scope to add your flavour to this special property, or simply enjoy!
