188a St.Vincent Street, Nelson
Elevated, private four bedroom home with huge character and appeal – tastefully painted throughout and featuring rimu floors and windows, french doors in lounge, a funky kitchen, generous storage, heat pump, council certified ceiling and underfloor insulation, a large single garage (with workbench), and two off street parking bays. Every room in the house looks out onto greenery and/or surrounding hills.
The kitchen glows with a new gas hob and oven, rimu bench top, and colourful cabinetry. There’s also an extractor ready to be installed. Excellent storage design maximises space via a bank of fully extending drawers, two sliding box drawers (for compost, recycling, rubbish), and a long pull-out drawer beside the oven (for oils, vinegars, spices etc).
The spacious bathroom features a deep bath with a shower above, a semi-partitioned toilet with a copper cistern, and two storage units.
This weatherboard home was built in 1960 and is straight as an arrow and dry as a bone – no slumps, creaks, dampness or rot to worry about! It’s situated up a long driveway, well away from the street.
The roof has been repainted two years ago, house paint in good condition. This spring the external windowsills have been repainted, and all internal windowsills re-sanded and re-oiled.
The sunny section is filled with well-maintained native landscaping, raised vege beds and fruit trees (a peach, cherry, apricot, lemon, olives and three fejoa hedges).
The owner has worked from home and converted the external laundry into a charming waiting room with a sink cabinet, which can easily be returned to a laundry if preferred. The laundry is currently located at the back of the garage.
