Extraordinary! Gracious, luxury home, huge grounds


There is simply no other property like this in Nelson, a stately, early 1900s home, beautifully modernised, set in almost an acre (3,688sqm) of extensive grounds - a strikingly impressive home for superb family living and memorable entertaining.

With 485sqm of glorious space on two levels with five bedrooms and three bathrooms, a choice of living areas, and huge garaging this is a magnificently expansive home - and brimming with tasteful luxury.

From its beautiful, curved timber staircase, window seats, marble-look floors, soaring ceilings to its deluxe kitchen and magnificent master suite, this is a home of rare quality and presence with its multiple gables.

Home in your large grounds, there's wonderful privacy with hedge borders and, at the rear, the Orchard Stream reserve with a walkway to Saxton Field - marvellous for family sport.

Leadlight and coloured glass windows, beautiful original timbers and doors are complemented by premium inclusions such as heated floors, European kitchen windows, a marble-look fireplace and superb lighting.

An extraordinary 220sqm workshop will house your classic car collection or provide huge space for even fanatical hobbyists. The separate, triple garage adds to the extraordinary vehicle and workshop space.

With its origins in the orchard and farmlands of Stoke, the historic home's era is signified by a set of stairs at the back of the house. Original doors, skirting boards, ceiling timbers and architraves are perfectly restored.

From its 1916 beginnings, this was a stately homestead where horse and carriage conveyed guests to the front door. But the owners of the past 16 years who have raised their family here, have spared little expense in making this home a 21st century delight, exceptionally comfortable and inviting - opulent, but without pretention.

Every room is a treat, from the gorgeous living room with window seating, to more intimate areas for quiet times.

Living areas open to gardens and courtyard areas, including one with a large open fire to share special times with family and friends while lawns are large enough for a huge gathering - a wedding, or significant birthday, or just a lovely garden party (or tennis court and swimming pool?).

The backyard, with the reserve behind, is a perfect spot for growing vegetables, with a potager established here.

The home is an architectural marvel (artfully extended) and built to high standards, with solid stucco cladding, some weatherboards and re-roofed with slate-like concrete roof tiles.

A beautiful, original gracious home of this quality is rare enough in Nelson, but to find one with nearly an acre of grounds makes 48 Covent Drive a one of a kind. Call Nina James to arrange an inspection.
