FOR those people looking for a home away from home with a beach lifestyle in mind, this property in the popular seaside town of Riverton more than fits the bill.
The three-bedroom weatherboard home was built in the 1950s, but the entire house has been given a very contemporary facelift.
A heat transfer system and with Low E glass, quality low-emissivity double glazing, in all of the windows throughout the home, ensure the rooms stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
A new corrugated iron roof has also been put on about 13 months ago.
The open-plan kitchen, dining and living space is light and inviting, with windows on three sides, and is heated by a multi-fuel burner.
The kitchen is on the north overlooking the backyard. It comes with a dishwasher, island bar and ample storage.
The three double bedrooms are relatively modest in size, but more than adequate.
The bedroom nearest the lounge has sufficient space to accommodate two single bunk beds comfortably.
The other two rooms have built-in wardrobes.
The bathroom has a shower over the bath, heated towel rail and fan heater, with the toilet located in a separate room next to the laundry.
There is a double-sized linen closet in the hallway and another storage cupboard opposite the laundry.
A door in the kitchen opens on to a large wooden north-facing deck, ideal for entertaining family and friends on those long, hot summer days.
The fully fenced 1012sqm section is very private, with a rural outlook adding to its charm.
It is an easy-care section, with really only the back lawn to mow.
There is room aplenty in the backyard to set up several tents to accommodate visitors who will undoubtedly want to come and stay.
This home comes with a single garage with additional storage sheds for all the beach toys.
With plenty of off-street parking available and only a short walk to Taramea Bay, this home is move-in ready for its new owners.
