This week’s House of the Week – 168 MacKenzie St, Winton


LOCATED in Winton, this home offers spacious family living.

The heart of the home would have to be the open-plan kitchen and dining area, with an adjoining step-down large lounge.

Modern and functional, the kitchen offers plenty of prep space and storage options with ample bench space and cupboards.

An island serves as additional cooking space as well as a breakfast bar.

Walking out of the kitchen area to the carpeted dining space, there is room for the whole family to gather.

The large and well-lit lounge provides an ideal place to spend time – with the long sliding ranch door opening to the decked outside area – and being north-facing is comfortable in both winter and summer.

A heat pump in the lounge provides warmth for that part of the house, with diesel underfloor heating throughout the whole of the home keeping it snug and warm.

The outdoor area would serve well for entertaining during warmer months, particularly with how accessible it is from the living room and kitchen.

With four generously sized bedrooms, there would be no squabbling for who gets which room – each comes with plenty of storage as well as large windows providing natural light.

A spacious bathroom, with separate toilet, comes with a bath, shower and vanity, as well as a heated towel rack.

Ideal for those with a pet, the garden is fully fenced and features an easily maintained lawn.

A garden shed at the back of the garden, provides space to stow away outdoor equipment and tools.

While there is space for two cars in covered parking, there is also ample off-street parking for more vehicles.

Close to the centre of Winton, the home is near the supermarket and Central Southland shoesAutres
