Description

Stately, private Nile Street villa


Grand living for families and entertainers is on offer in this majestic turn-of-century Nile Street home in a delightful setting. With a peaceful stroll to town alongside the river and close to wonderful walks and bike trails.

Soaring ceilings, bay windows, beautiful wooden floors and lead lights are all part of the magic of this home of five bedrooms plus a contemporary two-room wing for guests or income or ideal for work-from-home.

From first sight behind paling fence, kowhai, fruit trees and ferns the circa 1904 two-storey home makes a memorable impression - and the wow factor continues inside.

From the rose-clad front veranda, an amazing entry hall of patina-rich wall panelling and striking staircase ahead sets the tone for this stately home with large bedrooms and three living areas.

The expansive (344sqm) house is set on a 1032sqm section, with large, flat lawns dotted with natives and exotics, privately buffered from neighbours and the street.

While lovely period features remain, the home has been sympathetically updated to 21st century standards with excellent heating throughout, and comprehensive insulation underfloor and in ceilings and some exterior walls. Some double glazing has also been installed.

Edwardian grace is complemented by the modern gas heating to seven radiators throughout the house plus a gas fire in a drawing room. Solar hot water heating plus a wetback add to the modern essentials. The kitchen was renewed in 2010 and includes quality appliances.

You can't build a house like this today, but you can buy one!.
