Home of the week – 39 Hicks Rd, Stewart Island


A COSY island getaway is this week’s property, perfect for a holiday home or those seeking a quieter lifestyle away from the mainland on Stewart Island.

Opportunities like this are few and it’s a unique chance to join the gorgeous Oban community.

Situated a short walk from the township, there is plenty to love about this sunny, two-bedroom cottage, nestled among native bush high on Hicks Rd.

The home is open-plan with a kitchen, living and dining room, and sunroom/extra sleeping room off the end of the lounge area.

It also comes fully furnished featuring all the kitchen and laundry amenities, so you can simply walk in and enjoy all that Stewart Island has to offer.

A good-sized section comes with a large shed with plenty of room to store your boat, and a car/tractor port is built on the side.

The kitchen contains an operational wood burner, perfect for keeping the living areas warm and cosy during the colder months, and the water is heated by gas califont.

The two bedrooms are of a decent size and are located off the main hallway.

Both bedrooms contain double queen beds, wide windows, built-in wardrobes, and are fully carpeted.

A single toilet is located separately to the laundry, which includes a sink, top-loader washing machine, and a supply cupboard.

A glass ranch slider leads to a sunny wooden porch which faces the road with enough covered area for outdoor seating, perfect for summer barbecues.

Viewings of this property are by appointment only.

Wearing of masks, physical distancing and contact tracing requirements will be adhered to.
