288 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

An enviable cityside location close to everything and a wonderful home that's part of Nelson's history make this property hugely appealing - with multiple options for its next owners.

94 Nile Street is a stately landmark, standing graciously behind a white picket fence and flowering cherry tree on the corner of Alton Street.

With its wide, return veranda, heritage-hued weatherboards and decorative fretwork, the two-storey home exudes colonial elegance and charm with high ceilings and bay window.

The home offers 254 square metres of graceful space, a seamless melding of an original cottage from 1885 and the two-storey circa 1910 Hounsell family addition. Further renovations were made in the 1990s.

Currently part-home, part-office, this offering will appeal to those wanting to return it to a large, striking family house or those with an eye to commercial options or sympathetic re-development.

The house offers two large living areas, or more depending on your plans, and up to five bedrooms. Kitchen and lounge areas access the rear courtyard deck via sets of French and bi-fold doors.

The Category 2 Heritage New Zealand-listed house has undergone a good deal of revitalisation in recent years and presents in excellent, sound condition. Several rooms have been repainted, there's new carpet in the lounge and drapes have been renewed.

There's a beautiful new country-style and Bosch-equipped kitchen. Electricals are up to date and there's insulation in most parts of the home.

The north-facing home basks in sun and is set within a useful yet easily maintained section of 559sqm, including summery deck to enjoy barbecues and views to the eastern hillsides.

Whatever you decide to do with this wonderful home, you can continue to enjoy its heritage appeal of native timber floors and skirting boards, wonderful fireplaces with original surrounds and mantlepieces, solid internal doors and coloured glazing features.
