This week’s House of the Week – 181 Otatara Rd, Otatara


THIS property in Otatara offers many options.

Only 10 minutes to Invercargill’s CBD, this three double bedroom, brick and roughcast home has been modernised to offer contemporary comfort, while also appreciating all which living in the country can offer.

Zoned for all the Invercargill high schools, the school bus stops outside the property, and the Otatara Primary School is also nearby.

Facing north, the lounge, with its large windows is a sun trap. Because the open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area are elevated, the vista is wide, taking in the distant mountains.

There is an easy flow from the lounge to the dining and kitchen which has been modernised and has plenty of storage. Light dimmers in the lounge can set any mood to add to the relaxing ambience.

The back door from the kitchen leads to the private back yard, which is fenced and hedged. It is a great entertaining area, and has enough space for the children or pets to run around.

Near the back door is the spacious, updated laundry with, yet again, plenty of cupboards and space, as well as a second toilet.

From the kitchen, there are a few steps down to the accommodation wing, with the modern family bathroom which is also double glazed and has another toilet, bath with shower and modern vanity.

The light-filled hall is spacious, which again has much potential with the double glass doors which open to the patio with its 1960’s-era Scottish thistle-themed wrought iron fencing.

All the bedrooms are not only double in size, but have built-in wardrobes, with upper compartments, and in two rooms, the wardrobes are also double. Full of natural light, the front corner bedroom, in particular, would make a lovely office.

The house has been recarpeted throughout, is partially double glazed and the roof was replaced about four years ago.

There is plenty of parking and storage for vehicles with a tandem garage, as well as various sheds, a six stable barn and plenty of room on the property for off-street parking as well.

The paddock at the rear of the property, which has nearby access, is also fenced.

The current owners are open to negotiation about possession dates.Best jordan SneakersNIKE AIR HUARACHE
