Broadgreen Historic House- Overview

Broadgreen Historic House is one of oldest residential buildings in Nelson; located at 276 Nayland Road Stoke, it is a charming cob cottage which was built in 1855 for Mr. Edmund Buxton, and his family- which consisted of his wife and six daughters.

Historic records don’t state the exact construction time and occupants of the cottage, but the thing that remains consistent is that the house was built in the mid of 1850s and that for one of Nelson’s early settlers. Counted as the finest example of Colonial Cob House, this historic house consists of eleven rooms, all of which have been furnished to represent a lived in the family home of the Colonial Victorian Period.

This house remains open for public and even allows group visits, but only by appointment. The house is also known to hold exhibitions in its visitor complex; still, the most interesting thing about it is that the house decorated to match the seasons.
