228 B Herbert St, Invercargill

NESTLED back from the road, this week’s home of the week offers private and quiet living.

The 2012 ‘up spec’ build boasts more than just the necessities to make life comfortable.

The double garage, equipped with automatic door opener, provides additional space to the off-street parking.

With internal access to the house, it would make an excellent room for storage as it also comes with attic space.

The laundry is also located in the garage.

Walking through either the garage or front door will lead you to the main heart of the home, which features an open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area.

With the exception of the kitchen and bathroom, the house is carpeted throughout, which aids in keeping it cosy during the colder months.

A heatpump in the main room provides heating, and the property has double glazing and is fully insulated to keep that warmth in.

The modern and fresh-looking kitchen is large and comes kitted out with the essentials, including fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher and temperature-controllable gas hot water.

A large counter-top island doubles as a bar and provides plenty of space for cooking.

Sliding doors to the north-facing backyard and patio from this main room give the home an open and light feel, and enables easy entertaining.

Exiting the open-plan lounge and dining area takes you to a hallway, leading to the two double bedrooms and bathroom.

Immediately to the left is the master bedroom, which has a large built-in wardrobe and sliding door to the outside patio.

This allows sunlight to enter the room, making for a naturally well-lit bedroom.

Next down the hallway is the spacious and modern bathroom.

Large tiles are underfoot, with underfloor heating eradicating any chill while bathing or showering.

The bathroom features a corner shower, bathtub, toilet, large vanity and mirror, and a heated towel rail.

Last down the hallway is the second double bedroom, again with a built-in wardrobe.

The garden is easy to maintain and provides both a lawn and patio, allowing for many activities.

Situated close to the centre of Windsor, there are shops and schools within walking distance, as well as Queens Park which is a stone’s throw away.
