Description

Prize street, gorgeous villa


This is prime real estate; one of Nelson's prized, tranquil, leafy streets, a stroll to town, and a gracious, beautifully refurbished early 20th century home of stately proportions and the fine detail of an Edwardian villa.

No 12 has impressive street presence, basking in sunshine on the elevated side of Richmond Ave, behind a white paling fence. Wooden shingles feature on the gable ends.

Roses drape over railings fronting the veranda that wraps around the front, connecting with one overlooking the serene rear garden.

This is a spacious (205sqm), delightful, family home of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lounge areas and gardens with mature trees bordering level lawns and a large deck in the fenced backyard.

High ceilings, richly patinated rimu floors, deep skirting boards, bay windows and coloured glass evoke the 1910s era of the home.

French doors open from the family room and the sun-filled master bedroom to verandas and the appealing, gardens (759sqm) with flat lawns for play.

The house has a surprise downstairs level, adding to living flexibility. A large bedroom has garden access via French doors and the bathroom was newly installed in the last few years.

While the turn of century features are wonderfully preserved, the home has contemporary insulation and heating with two wood burners and a heat pump.

An HRV system distributes clean, warm air. The house decor is delightful, featuring wallpapers, quality window treatments and relatively fresh paint inside and out. A new roof has been fitted.

There's loads of storage space under the house at the rear while the garage has workshop room as well as one-car parking. There's room outside for another two vehicles.

The location is attractive, close to schools and a pleasant walk to the city. Grampians' walks and bike trails are within easy reach. It's a special community, too, with twice-yearly street gatherings.

Do not miss this opportunity to be part of this delightful neighbourhood.
