Home of the week – 96 Exmouth St, Waverley


FIT for a family, this week’s House of the Week is an Invercargill gem.

There is room for the whole family, with three spacious, well-lit double bedrooms.

Each is fitted with wardrobe space, with the front two also having double-glazed windows.

It is easy to see how the home’s new owner can make their mark; plain walls and natural colours make the house feel fresh and decorative possibilities are plentiful.

A heat pump is located in the hallway and the home is fitted with an HRV system.

Keeping snug and warm during winter is easy to accomplish in this home, with plenty of double-glazed windows allowing for optimum air-flow and light.

Comfort and convenience are key features, with a spacious living area heated by a wood burner.

This area is open plan with a space that could be used as a dining area, which leads to the kitchen.

Beyond the kitchen is a utility area, perfect for using as a laundry, and a toilet located here makes for handy access from this side of the house.

Another benefit to this home is the tucked-away office space fitted into the wall, which is able to be closed off with a door.

The kitchen offers plenty of storage options, with ample counter-top for meal preparation.

With a north-facing view to the garden, double doors lead to a deck and patio area, ideal for summer nights in the sun.

The new homeowners will also be able to enjoy the privacy of the backyard in the comfort of the conservatory, no matter the weather.

A wall-panel heater and complete double-glazing make the room ideal for year-round use.

Close to the bedrooms, the bathroom is fitted with a shower and bath, while a heated towel rail adds comfort in cooler seasons.

Outside, the garden is easy to maintain while still offering a green environment.

The house is close to shops, schools and public transport services.
