Home of the week – 70 Margaret St, Glengarry, Invercargill


EASY care section, tick.

Character filled, tick.

North-facing entertaining, tick.

Well-established area, tick.

This entry-level home or rental investment in Margaret St, Invercargill, certainly ticks all the boxes.

Situated just a stone’s throw from ILT Stadium Southland, this home is full of character and ready for its new owners.

Walking in to the fully-fenced property, you will see a concreted driveway which leads to a single garage with carport attached at the front.

The porch allows for shelter for those waiting for the front door to be answered.

On entering the home there are two bedrooms, a single with fitted wardrobe to the left and a double, which will capture all the afternoon sun, to the right.

Next, is a linen cupboard and bathroom with vanity, toilet and shower over the bath.

At the back of the home is the master bedroom, complete with leadlight windows, expansive ceiling height and a fitted wardrobe.

All the bedrooms are kept warm by the heat pump in the hallway.

To the back of the house are the living, dining and kitchen areas.

A bricked-in log burner provides the cosiness, and the kitchen is in keeping with the cottage’s aesthetic, providing plenty of storage with a pantry and fitted cupboards.

Off the kitchen is a laundry cupboard.

From the kitchen area, the French doors lead on to a wooden deck – a place to sit and relax and make full use of the sun as it travels from north to west.

With lawn at both the front and back of the section, there is plenty of scope for enjoying the morning and afternoon sun, as well as tending to the easy-to-manage garden.

There is also a shed out back, to house the wood for the fire.
