House of the week – 10 Robert St, Otatara


OTATARA has a lot to offer, with bush walks, mountainbike trails, the beach, river and golf course all available close by.

This property offers not just four double bedrooms and plenty of outside space, it could also offer a lifestyle with many benefits to its new owners.

Arriving at the property, the 809sqm section has plenty to offer. There is a large back section which could be developed further with plantings or left as-is for low-maintenance upkeep.

Out the front there is plenty of room for off-street parking. You could fit a caravan or boat and still have room.

Walking in the front door, complete with cat-flap, you have a northeast-facing living area. The sun will stream in here in the summer but there is also a heat pump to ensure toastiness on those more overcast days.

Through a doorway is the kitchen which has been modernised in neutral tones and includes a dishwasher and Westinghouse range.

Just off the kitchen is the laundry with outside access to the nearby clothesline.

Down the hallway are the first of the two bedrooms and the family bathroom. The hallway has a double cupboard with another tucked around the corner, meaning you have plenty of places to put linen, toys or tidy away the bits and pieces of everyday life.

The bathroom has also been recently updated, and includes a sizeable shower, toilet and vanity.

The two bedrooms downstairs also feature built-in wardrobes.

Just before you head up the stairs is a nook which could be used as a home office, or with the simple addition of a television and seating could be adapted to provide further living space. This space also includes a heat pump.

Heading upstairs light floods in from the sunroom off the hallway. This could be an ideal play area for children, an office or a lovely place to sit and read a book.

The two bedrooms upstairs also come with built-in wardrobes.

Another useful feature is the double garage, with two separate doors, which includes a workshop.

All set on a fully fenced section, this property is ready for a family keen to make Otatara their home.
