Home of the week – 15 Metzger St, Georgetown, Invercargill


DON’T be fooled by appearances. What initially appears as an unassuming home from the outside is packed full of punch on the inside, leaving potential buyers little to do when they move in.

This home in Metzger St not only provides a great location but also allows for those looking for a home on a smaller section, to still have ample space inside.

On walking down the driveway of this home, you will firstly find a standalone double garage – great for tinkering or to put both cars away.

Through the gateway of the fully-fenced section, you enter the home where you are immediately aware of the work which has already been completed.

Off the hallway, which not only has a cupboard but a hanging area to tuck away the coats, to the left you will find two spacious double rooms.

To the right, is a generous living room which has the biggest wow factor of all – a feature wall which creates a stunning focal point, complete with built-in gas fire.

In here there is space for all and with a heatpump also at the ready, there will be no reason to be chilly on those cooler Southland days.

The living area opens on to the fully modernised kitchen, complete with dishwasher, freestanding range, a large pantry cupboard and plenty of room for a family-sized refrigerator. There is also a large island, which kids can sit at eating their breakfast or friends can congregate around while dinner is prepared.

Off the kitchen is the dining room but this could be easily transformed into another lounge area, home office or even another bedroom if required. There is also access through this room to the large northwest facing conservatory.

Another hallway off the kitchen leads to the third bedroom as well as the laundry area. There is also access to the conservatory from this hallway.

The home has full double glazing throughout and, while you could easily move in and do nothing, it still has scope for someone to add their own touch.

If you’re looking for easycare but ample living space, don’t hesitate to visit this home near both Newfield Park School and Southland Girls’ High School.
