This week’s House of the Week – 148 Aicken Rd, Otatara


THIS week’s home is nestled away off a quiet road in Otatara – an ideal family home.

With four double bedrooms, each with a built-in sliding door wardrobe, there is ample space.

The driveway leads to the home, which has an English country-house aesthetic, where there is a large area for parking.

Two spacious double garages with internal access provide a secure way of storing vehicles and belongings.

Adding to the cottage feel is the large front door, which is detailed with stained-glass windows.

Entering the home, the hallway guides to the home’s many rooms.

Immediately to the right is the kitchen and dining area, as well as a large walk-in pantry.

Storage isn’t an issue, with cupboards and drawers aplenty, along with long counter-top space which doubles as a breakfast bar.

The dining area is in a sunny corner of the home and, being north-facing, the home gets optimum sunlight which helps keep it snug and warm.

A sliding door separates the large lounge area from the dining room, and wide windows cover one wall, allowing for a light and bright space.

The room overlooks one of the many grassed areas surrounding the home, with a glass sliding door ideal for letting in summer breezes.

From the hallway, the bedrooms are at the back of house, as well as an office space, bathroom and separate toilet.

The bathroom comes with a shower, bath and sink.

The first of the double bedrooms, which could be used as an additional office, is bright and warm, as are the other bedrooms.

Set at the end of the hallway, the master bedroom offers plenty of built-in wardrobe space as well as an en-suite.

Large and spacious, the bathroom comes with a vanity, spa bath and shower, as well as a back door to the garden.

The master bedroom also has a large and private courtyard, accessed by a glass sliding door.

The property also comes with three paddocks – ideal for pets or livestock, or simply as an open and sheltered green space.

Hidden around the side of the home is a two-bay shed, as well as a tunnel house.latest Nike releasefree shipping nike yeezy warehouse store locations
