City sanctuary, country feel...


Deadline Sale (unless sold prior)

4pm, Fri 22 May

288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

This, you must see - an historic, beautifully-renovated twin-gable home amid 1,515sqm of grounds, elevated and basking in the sun. If you want a property of size and quality with a taste of country minutes from the city, this is the one.

There is simply nothing else like it so near town, a home for families to build memories and share proudly with friends.

With its rare off-street access and electronically operated front gates, you are in a secluded world of your own, hidden from the road, with wide, lofty views from the favoured, sun-washed side of the valley.

Sympathetic major extensions have retained the traditional look but transformed the house into an incredibly comfortable, attractive home and with landscaped grounds for play and entertaining.

The two-storey home is believed to be the first house in Washington Valley, built in the early 1900s or possibly earlier.

It now offers nearly 200sqm of delightful space; four bedrooms, two bathrooms and appealing living rooms opening to a wide veranda and picket-fenced gardens encircling the house that will delight children - and a sleepout with approved development plans.

With timber floors, painted timber ceilings and original (restored) panelled doors, there's a patina and warmth that only homes of this vintage can offer. But now there's an appealing modern kitchen and bathrooms and lovely bedrooms and double glazing.

Comprehensively insulated, it's kept toasty winter-warm with a fire, two heat pumps and ducted gas-fired water heating to radiators in every part of the home (each controllable for temperature and timing).

The house has modern electricals, although many renewed switches are traditional brass-on-timber and plumbing has been renewed. An alarm system has been fitted. Water heating is by gas califont and there's great storage.

French doors open to a wide, north-facing veranda and landscaped grounds, with a mix of timber and stone retaining walls and flat lawn.
