Home of the Week – 49 Matai St, Te Anau


MODERN and bright, this home is a Te Anau delight.

Only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, this low-maintenance home has great accessibility with dual access driveways and garden.

Ideal as a family home or holiday hideaway, it offers three double bedrooms, with an en suite off the master bedroom.

Come rain or shine, the family won’t be left with nothing to do open, making for a great place to spend time indoors.

Outside, the sun-trap patio and garden cater to both green-thumbed residents and barbecue lovers; a great space for entertaining friends and family in a private setting.

The open-plan dining room and kitchen are modern and simplistic, making it easy for a new homeowner to make their mark aesthetically.

Wide benchtops offer a large space for cooking preparation and mealtimes, and could also double as a breakfast bar.

Cabinets and shelving help to keep a clutter-free kitchen.

Tiled flooring in the kitchen keeps it easy to clean, while carpet in the dining area ensures this area stays snug underfoot while enjoying a home-cooked meal.

A sizable utility room houses the laundry but also has plenty of space for extra kitchen storage or a pantry or freezer.

Central heating throughout keeps the home cosy and warm during cooler months, while the many windows keep it bright and sunny.

The central heating is part of recent home improvements; a new boiler for the diesel central heating system warms the home and hot water, and is operated via a touch screen interface.

Located so close to the town centre, there is much on offer. Nearby schools, cafes, and supermarkets make living here convenient and enjoyable, while the Fiordland outdoors caters to those with a taste for adventure.

The lake is a stone’s throw away and, with the generously sized garage and driveway, there is ample space for storing a boat or other outdoor equipment.

The property is fully fenced, making it easy to keep pets and children within sight.
