Rural retreat close to city


ONLY 15 minutes from Invercargill’s CBD, this rural retreat on Wixon Rd at Tisbury offers plenty of options for those who enjoy country living while also being close to the benefits of the city.

With Tisbury School close by, this north-facing, three-bedroom family home has plenty of room for everyone – and pets or lifestyle animals.

The 155sqm home is on 2ha (about five acres), with fantastic rural views from all the living areas and master bedroom.

The recently renovated kitchen also includes a walk-in pantry, duel oven and soft-close drawers. Open plan with the dining area, which can be curtained off from the step-down lounge, the area is light and spacious.

To the north of the dining area is another step-down to the conservatory, which can also be closed off.

With great indoor/outdoor flow, and making the most of the expansive views and outdoor entertaining, a large deck spreads along the front of the house alongside the lounge and conservatory.

Facing north, with extensive windows, the home is a sun-trap. Fully insulated and described as a “very warm house”, the lower level of the home is all double-glazed and there is a choice of heating, either by a Yunca or heat pump.

The north-facing office also has a fantastic view.

New carpet has been laid throughout the house, and all the bedrooms are spacious, light and have in-built wardrooms. As well as the large family bathroom, which not only has a glass-enclosed shower, but bath as well, a heated towel rail and vanity unit, there are two separate toilets, with one downstairs.

The huge utility and laundry room has even more storage, and another small room nearby could be transformed into a hobby room or another office.

A double garage is close to the house, and further down the driveway is an implement shed which encompasses a shearing stand and a lock-up single bay. There are also various outsheds and small sheep yards.
