Gentle, dignified classic on Nelson's Ngatitama St


If you listen hard, you can almost hear the clippity-clop of horse hooves and the creak of leather harnesses as a carriage pulls up outside. History has a tale to tell in every part of this distinguished home built circa 1860 and owned by one of Nelson's renowned architects, Arthur Reynolds Griffin long before the day of the car. No 18 has undergone a number of updates and additions in the 160 or since it was built, many by the current owners of 55 years who transformed and opened up the house, while retaining its character-filled flavour. Since the 1960's, family memories have been built here and now it's the chance for new owners to make their mark on this remarkable property. Surrounded by a wonderful garden dotted with flowering trees and in close sight of the Boys' and Girls' colleges, this is prime Nelson real estate. Originally a large settler farm, land has been split-off over the decades, but a sizable 1482 square metres remains: terraced and flat around the house and gently sloping to the western boundary. With a formal lounge, formal dining with sunroom, a TV snug with wood-burner, library, study, an open family room and kitchen and as many as six bedrooms, it's a home meant for a family to enjoy happy days with their own space - and to share with friends; the lawns and gardens for parties.This home is one of Nelsons Heritage Buildings and is a 'Category 2'. Yes, there is always work to be done on period homes of this class and charm, but new owners will love living here while taking this happy family home into the future.
