Home of the week – 69 Totara St, Newfield, Invercargill


A MUCH-LOVED family home is ready for a new family to move in.

This property at 69 Totara St in Invercargill has been loved by the same family for the past 33 years.

You can see why they have adored living here.

The character-filled rooms, spacious outdoor area and generous living, make for a well-loved home.

On arriving at the property, you are struck by the vastness of the section.

A double garage, sheds, greenhouse and tunnel house, chicken coop and raised garden beds don’t get in the way of the grassed area which is ample room for a cricket wicket.

Inside you will find, at the rear, a couple of spacious utility rooms (including a toilet) – enough room for not only the washing machine and drier but extra fridges and freezers as well.

Walking into the kitchen area you are greeted by a modernised kitchen, complete with dishwasher, wall oven, bench stove-top and massive pantry. There are also two other large storage cupboards in this area.

Through the archway from the kitchen, is the generous lounge area complete with wood burning fire and heat-pump.

The highlight of the lounge is the ornate ceiling and Tiffany-esque light fitting.

From the lounge you can walk to the north-facing conservatory. Another area where you can tuck away in the sunshine, or close off the doors to create a whole other room.

The master bedroom can be accessed from either the conservatory or the hallway. This is a generous room with a fitted wardrobe.

Right next door is the perfect space for a single bed or an office.

The other two bedrooms are generously sized doubles both with fitted wardrobes.

All bedrooms retain the home’s character and have polished wooden floors.

At the end of the hallway is the bathroom with shower, separate bath and sink.

If all of this wasn’t enough, this home is right on the doorstep to Newfield Park School.

If you are looking for a home filled with character and ample space both indoors and out, then come and see if this property is for you.
