Description

Prize city villa, pool


Come to one of Nelson's prime locations and a wonderful, bright and spacious home to build your family memories. This characterful but fully renovated villa is full of turn-of-century appeal, with elevated views and space galore inside and out, including an in-ground swimming pool and hot tub.

Number 279 is just a walk to city, boys' and girls' colleges and Hampden primary with Fairfield Park as a virtual "front yard" across the road and the walking trails of the Grampians in close reach.

The circa 1904 villa of 226sqm is graced with high ceilings and beautiful timber floors, four bedrooms, a front "parlour"/media/ 5th bedroom and a fabulous family room plus lounge opening to the garden.

The impressive scale, original timber doors and sheer airiness that makes these old villas so appealing are all here - the home underwent a stunning architectural renovation in 2011.

Windows are double-glazed, including restored sash windows, and the home is warmly heated and insulated and stucco cladding finish for easy maintenance. A new Colorsteel roof was installed at the time of the renovation.

The spacious rear of the house is fabulous for dining and relaxing with a big window seat. This area is open to the lounge and adjoins the courtyard and adjacent pool/spa area, complete with outdoor speakers and garden lighting.

Verandas on two sides of the house add to outdoor options and the north-facing front deck gives leafy views Fairfield Park and out over the city to the Bay.

The large kitchen is an entertainers' delight, featuring a sleek minimalistic aesthetic and a huge island bench where friends can pull up a stool for a chat and a wine as dinner is prepared.

The master bedroom has walk-in dressing room and en suite bathroom. The family bathroom is contemporary with a claw foot bath as well as shower.

The 809sqm of gardens surrounding the house are designed for easy upkeep and there are raised vege and herb beds and enough lawn for youngsters and pets.
