Reap What You Sow In This Timeless Beauty
Tucked gently in to hill in the historic precinct of Fountain Place, stands “The Captains Cottage”. A quaint three bedroom cottage that has been home to families for generations. Proudly withstanding the test of time, her current owners have made a good start on restorations, but there is still more work to bring her back to her former glory. Nestled gently in to one of Nelson’s oldest streets, the heritage status ensures that these lovely homes will endure for generations to come.
Elevated on the site, the house is basking in sunlight throughout the day and overlooks the cottage styled garden. The verandah, recently rebuilt to reflect her bygone era, invites you to come on in…
Open plan living is warmed with the sun streaming in the French doors on the north side, and throughout winter, heated by a compliant wood burner plus, tucked into the original chimney – a historic coal range. The layout easily enables modern living in this 150-year-old beauty.
Rest assured, you will need to roll up your sleeves and get your hands a bit dirty, but the effort will pay dividends as the magic happens. The Main part of the house stands strong on her piles, but the annex has seen better days. The roof has been replaced in recent years.
Off street parking and garaging is an added bonus in these historic streets, and the studio offers her new owner a work from home opportunity, or simply additional storage space for the paraphernalia of our modern lives.
15 Fountain Place is a very special offering and quite simply must be viewed. You will surely fall in love.
