One of Nelson’s oldest homes, Woodstock House, is back on the market

  • One of Nelson’s oldest surviving homes, Woodstock House in Stoke, is back on the market after the current owners have finished restoring its exterior.

Built in 1854 for Captain W R Nicholson, it is thought to be the oldest architecturally designed cob house in New Zealand.

Nicholson and his wife arrived in Nelson in 1850 and he established himself as a successful merchant and shipping agent. His company built the first deep-water wharf in Nelson.
