Explore a slice of Carterton's history at 260 High Street in a fully restored circa 1860-character villa, once home to former mayor William Howard Booth. This three-gabled villa combines historical charm with modern luxury, ideal for those who cherish heritage alongside contemporary comforts.

The main house includes three double bedrooms with wardrobe storage. The master features a private en-suite. At the heart is a spacious galley-style kitchen with top-tier appliances, ample storage, a walk-in scullery, and integrated laundry. It opens to interconnected living and dining areas, perfect for entertainment and daily activities, plus a separate lounge for quieter moments.

Beyond the main home, the property includes a standalone one-bedroom self-contained studio, perfect for guests, work from home or potential rental income. This charming cottage is equipped with a kitchenette and a tiled bathroom, and it benefits from the same attention to detail as the main house.

Outdoors, the space boasts substantial Kwila decking and a double garage with extra laundry facilities, enhancing practicality. The home sits on a well-established 1102 sq m corner lot with mature plantings and bespoke fencing for privacy.

Fully insulated, the villa features a separate gas and feature dual-sided wood burning open fireplace in the living and kitchen areas, along with a heat transfer system for comfort in any season. Essential upgrades like re-roofing, re-piling, re-plumbing, and rewiring ensure the home meets modern standards while preserving its historic essence.

This beautifully restored property exemplifies a merger of past and present, perfect for those drawn to architectural elegance with modern amenities. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate its value.
