You would be forgiven for thinking you had stepped back in time upon entering this gracious villa which holds a prime position at the lower end of Wharfe Street. It offers character lovers a classic example of Oamaru's early history and boasts beautiful views over our historic township and beyond. Positioned close to Fenwick School and Edna McCulloch Kindergarten, and a short walk to town, harbour and the Historic Precinct.

A colourful cottage garden and picket fence guide you to the entrance, upon which you are transported back to an era where attention to detail was commonplace. The original features gracing the interior of this stately home are largely still in place. High stud ceilings and ornate open fireplaces adorn most of the rooms in this 4 bedroom, with separate lounge, living, and dining room home. Some restoration work has been completed, but those excited by the prospect of restoring an early piece of historic Oamaru have the scope to be able to guide the transformation of this gracious lady of a bygone era into the present.

Adjoining properties on separate titles at the rear of this home are also offered for sale in separate listings, making for an exciting development opportunity for those looking to be an integral part of taking our town into the future - The position of those buildings is indicated in the final photo. Refer listings OAM22038 and OAM22039.

With much of its original villa character maintained, there are potential hospitality options tied to this property's size, space, outstanding heritage, views & location. Sitting strategically with its Business Heritage properties in Tees Street, this home is available now for sale as is.

A very special home looking for a special new owner who can continue the journey to bring her back to her former glory. New owners with new ideas will have new directions with plenty of work remaining to be done! Call Kelli or Alan for further information or to view.
