Original in The Wood plus Lockwood unit


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

Closes 4pm, Wed 27 Feb

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson

Here's an absolute rarity; a comfortable family home plus a separate, consented Lockwood unit and a good-size garden - all within walking distance of town.

With its front picket fence, the property will charm you from the street, the end of a cul-de-sac in The Wood where it's quiet and peaceful.

Look further and you'll see the extended family living on offer and the chance for rental income or further development.

It's the first time in over 40 years that this much-loved property is on the market. A family has raised their children here and now it's your turn.

Built in 1947 when rimu was still used for floors, architraves and skirting boards, this solid home has stood the test of time - but also undergone updates to make living more comfortable.

The free-standing, double-glazed studio unit, with its deck and veranda and own garden is fully self-contained and spacious with high, gabled ceilings. It's perfect for in-laws or rental income.

The original house has two spacious bedrooms and a large lounge, with all the 70-year-old timbers in excellent condition. The original fireplace with rimu mantle remains, but now with an approved log burner.

As well as the appealing Lockwood unit, there's a separate work room or spare kid's room out off the back porch.

Even with the outbuildings there's stacks of garden space (607m²); a traditional front lawn and a long backyard. Children can play to their hearts content in the safe, fully fenced section, and you can grow your fill of veges in the fertile soil.

While the homes originality remains intact, additions in the past decade or so have added modernity. The bathroom has been renewed and so has the kitchen, there's also a new Coloursteel roof.

There's a single garage and plenty of room for off-street parking.

The location is attractive with the Milton Street shops just down the road and city cafes and shops just 15 minutes or so walk away with friendly neighbours close by.
