Prized restored villa, dress circle location


A more beautifully restored grand villa than this gorgeous home is hard to imagine, privately set in the dress circle of Nelson with views over the city to the Haven.

From its imposing two-storey exterior with gable top finials and decorative barge boards to its stunning, high-ceiling rooms with fireplaces and native timbers, this is early 1900s villa living at its finest.

No expense has been spared in its craftsman restoration from top to bottom with faithful attention to period detail. At the same time, it has been unobtrusively lifted to contemporary living standards, starting as you enter through the remote-opening double gates.

This grand dame provides three delightful bedrooms and two bathrooms/three toilets and occupies a prime, walk-to-city position, tucked behind a tall fence. From rooms and verandas, vistas extend over the garden tree tops past the St Mary's church spire towards Tasman Bay and around to eastern hills.

There's still the sense here of genteel living in the horse and carriage era with ladies and gentlemen dressed in their finery.

Now, though, there are modern comforts and amenities; a comprehensive radiator heating system, beautiful bathrooms with underfloor heating, fabulous period light fittings, lovely carpeting and decor, a security system, instant gas hot water and a kitchen for master chefs.

A spectacular conservatory as well as the two huge living rooms - one with bay window - at the front and a TV room/library at the rear offer fabulous living spaces.

Accentuated by soaring 3.6m painted timber ceilings, this 274sqm home is a pure delight; the house bathed in sunlight through large, stately windows and French doors.

The original, restored timber features are remarkable, including solid doors, polished, mellow floors, half-panelled walls, beautiful ceilings, large sash windows architraves and decorative cornices. Renewed brass fittings from handles to hinges are a rich contrast.

The 825sqm landscaped section is dotted with lovely trees, providing a private, secure retreat.
