THIS is a stunning home set among privately-owned paddocks and native bush in a tranquil location in Otatara.
The homestead has been completely remodelled inside and extensively renovated throughout, including extensions to increase the floor space of this incredible property.
The large and inviting living space, which includes a top-spec and well-appointed kitchen area, is open-plan with the spacious living and a welcoming dining area.
The kitchen has a centrally located stainless steel utility bench, complete with double sink and breakfast bar. There are top-of-the-line
appliances such as dishwashers, an induction cooktop and two matching wall ovens, and plenty of cupboards, drawers and bench space, all set out on a wooden and raised floor, giving this room a sense of sophistication seldom seen.
Sliding doors from the dining area give access to the full and covered veranda along the north and east of the homestead.
There is also a large hobby/rumpus or family room, which could be great as a home office or family space. The home is heated throughout by a central heating radiator system.
There are six bedrooms in total, four on the ground floor and two upstairs. The large master bedroom includes an en suite with shower, vanity and toilet. The master also has a walk-in wardrobe and sliding doors to the veranda.
The spacious family bathroom consists of a claw-foot bath, full wall-to-wall and floor tiling. The toilet is in a separate room and the shower is in a dedicated wet-floor and tiled room. The laundry has its own sliding-door cupboard area space, complete with a sink and workbench.
The approximate land area is 6 hectares (15 acres), which includes fenced paddocks. There are also raised vegetable gardens, a glasshouse and various utility sheds on the property.
The home is on the main bus route for city high schools and is a short drive to Invercargill’s city centre.
Seldom does a homestead this superior in design, concept and workmanship come on the market.
