THIS week’s house of the week is a charming and sunny Otatara home.
Located in the quiet and semi-rural Invercargill suburb, this three-bedroom abode offers plenty of opportunities.
Double glazing, a heat transfer system and a heat pump keep the home warm during the cooler months, while there are plenty of windows for keeping it fresh and breezy.
The open-plan lounge and dining area is north-facing, allowing for optimum natural light and warmth.
Fitted with plenty of storage space, the kitchen boasts floor-to-ceiling cupboards and drawers.
The counter-top can double as a breakfast bar.
Overlooking the garden, the large kitchen window makes for a well-lit room with an idyllic view.
All three of the double bedrooms have great wardrobe space, with two of them overlooking the garden.
The home has two toilets, a bath and separate shower, as well as a laundry.
This property’s garden is a key feature; the well fenced 1012msection boasts a multitude of fruit-bearing plants.
These include plum and apple trees, two grape vines as well as blackcurrant bushes.
Large lawns and well-established garden beds make for easy gardening, but there are plenty of opportunities for further landscaping or planting.
A front lawn offers even more green area.
Well-equipped, the backyard also has a hen house, water tank and glasshouse.
