Description

Grand city-view villa!


Grand turn-of-the-20th century Nelson homes in the sought-after slopes overlooking city and bay - don't often change hands, but here's a beauty now available to lovers of century-old grandeur.

Imposing from the street corner of desirable Richmond Avenue and Brougham Street, this two-storey 1914 villa turns heads as she did when those in horse-drawn carriages went by.

There's the bonus of a self-contained two-bedroom basement flat with private courtyard for income or guests.

With its wonderful scale, high ceilings and rooms fit for high-style entertaining, this striking old home faces north from within its lovely, old-fashioned gardens. A heritage English oak, circa 1914, stands sentinel as it has for generations of owners.

You have a choice of living spaces with a graceful formal lounge, a more intimate, yet still impressive living room and a sunroom opening to the front veranda. There's a downstairs bathroom and two more upstairs, including an ensuite. Upstairs rooms look out towards hillsides and down towards the city.

From the moment you step inside the grand entry hall, you can see the magic of the era; the gorgeous floor timbers, solid original doors and stained-glass windows. Most doors have original brass handles and plates.

Gracious rooms abound; the formal front room and second lounge, each with large recessed window spaces typical of the era. It's a house to enjoy the finer things in life.

While the character remains, there are comforts of heat pumps and bedroom panel heaters, modernised bathrooms and kitchen with its wide Smeg gas hob and electric oven.

There's scope too to add value to this wonderful home while earning income from the downstairs self-contained flat with its own entrance and garden courtyard and studio.

The timbers and fireplaces are testament to the quality of detail in this turn-of-the-century villa style.

Here's a splendid home to enjoy in a wonderful location and with the potential to add your own flavour.
