This week’s House of the Week – 167 Dunns Rd, Otatara


Rustic cottage potential entry into Otatara

BUILT in the 1920s, this rustic, country cottage on Dunns Rd offers the potential buyer “entry” into the Otatara market.

An ideal bachelor pad, or suitable for someone wanting to get on the property ladder, this three bedroom home has plenty of potential.

An easy indoor-outdoor flow from the north-facing lounge ensures relaxed entertaining on the covered deck at the front of the house.

It is just an effortless few steps from the deck to the front yard, which offers a green space for the children to run around.

Nearby, is the Otatara Primary School, making it super-easy to take and collect the children from.

All bedrooms have been double glazed, as has the lounge, kitchen and dining areas.

The master bedroom, with a built-in wardrobe, is off the lounge, which ensures it can be well heated during winter. As it also is north-facing, this room is also flooded with light and natural warmth. As well as insulation in the ceiling, the house can be heated by a multi-fuel burner in the lounge. Being open-plan, the heat will easily flow into the dining area and the nearby country-charm-style kitchen.

Leaving the door to the hall open, also ensures the rest of the house can be heated.

As well as the two bedrooms off to the left of the hall, the bathroom opposite has been modernised and has a vanity, toilet, heated towel rail and glass-enclosed shower.

Next door is the office which could also be used for extra storage.

A bonus is the good-sized man shed just behind the house, which already has a bar installed with corrugated iron and vanished wood features. All this shed needs is for someone to stamp their mark on it.

As well as a tandem garage at the rear of the property, which is double in width, there is a massive amount of off-street parking for all the toys, whether it be classic cars, a caravan, a boat or trailer.

To the side of the garage is a carport, as well as a custom-built kennel and run for a medium to large sized dog, which offers security and comfort.

Fully fenced, and partly planted with natives, the property is low maintenance.
