House of the week – 56 Maitland St, Strathern, Invercargill


JUST a short walk to the supermarket, a choice of takeaways, or one of the many amenities close by at South City, this stand-alone, front townhouse is sure to tempt.

Whether buying for retirement, to downsize or as an investment property, this cosy and tidy low-maintenance, brick home will tick plenty of boxes.

The white picket fence sets a welcoming scene with a small front lawn and diminutive garden, which gives the new owner the choice of extending the flower gardens or keeping them easy-care.

With a view to the street, relaxing in the cosy sun-soaked conservatory will be another temptation.

Imagine reclining on a sunny or overcast day, with a book and a coffee, or watching the pedestrians stroll by.

Enter through the conservatory to the open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area, which faces to the north and west, ensuring sun throughout the day, afternoon and into the evening.

With easy indoor/outdoor flow, and a reasonable amount of lawn, entertaining is easy.

The cosy kitchen has ample storage, and would be an easy space to interact with friends and visitors in the dining and lounge areas.

This 1990s build has new drapes, curtains and carpet throughout.

Along the hall is the bathroom which has a separate shower, toilet and vanity.

The two double bedrooms, one which faces the sunny north, both have built-in wardrobes.

The spacious garage is easily accessed at the end of hall, ensuring no-one has to get wet on those rainy days when unpacking the groceries.

Storage is abundant, with plenty of space available in the garage.

The laundry is also sited at the rear of the garage, and another area has been set aside to be used as a workshop or hobby area.
