History, charm, full renovation, prime waterfront!


Is there a house view more stirringly evocative of seaside Nelson than this? And from a home with such history?

You've probably passed Number 339 and smiled at its romantic appeal and direct lookout over The Cut, wondering what it was like inside.

Named the Harbour Pilot House for its origins in 1862, this adorable weatherboard home with two delightful upstairs bedrooms - the rear bedroom having doors to its own balcony - and two bathrooms has been fully renovated by an award-winning master builder (and afterwards blessed by Nelson Archdeacon Harvey Ruru).

The renovation included an extensive full refurbishment inside and out, including new piling, wiring, and plumbing, re-lined walls and LED recessed lighting.

The granite steps leading up to the front decks were originally ballast on the ships bringing early settlers to Nelson.

With a direct view out to the Bay and an early sighting of square-rigged sailing vessels arriving, no wonder the pilot chose this spot to live.

The charms and rich patina of 160 years of life are still evident, but in most respects, this home now offers 21st century living comforts along with the kauri mantlepiece, tiled fire surrounds and sash windows.

The house has partial double-glazing and a comprehensive heating system, with gas-powered radiators throughout the house and a heat pump.

You also have off-street parking, which is not always the case on Wakefield Quay.

The living/dining rooms are open plan and bathrooms upstairs and down make for practical living.

This is a toasty warm home in winter, and the upstairs partial double glazing helps to reduce the sound of passing traffic.

The surprisingly spacious house makes the best use of its approximately 80sqm floor plan (approx. 117sqm with decking) with storage spaces well designed and generous.

Couples and singles wanting a lock and leave or the seafront and cafe life will adore this home and its epic location.
