This week’s House of the Week – 33 West Plains Rd, Waikiwi

SHARE

A GARDEN-LOVER’S haven, this is the ideal family home in Waikiwi.

Set back from the road with an easy-to-maintain front garden, the property offers plenty of outside space while being fully fenced to keep pets or children safe.

The driveway leads to a powered double garage which could be used as a workshop or utility area.

Facing the front lawn, the lounge or family room has a large sliding door which opens to a decked area; ideal for warm evenings in the sun or enjoying a meal with friends.

The carpeted lounge is a generous size and is the obvious heart of the home.

From there, a hallway leads to the three double bedrooms, all a decent size.

Each of these has built-in wardrobes and windows which let in ample natural light. This allows for comfortable and cosy areas.

At the opposite end of the house is the kitchen and dining room, and when the sunlight arrives, this makes this space warm and inviting.

The kitchen comes with ample counter-top space which makes food prep a breeze, as well as plenty of cupboards to store away bits and bobs.

More cupboard space is just beyond the kitchen allowing for a tidy and clean home.

The bathroom is large and is fitted with a bath, toilet and sink. As with most of the home, it is decorated simply making it easy for any new homeowners to make their mark.

To assist with chores and housekeeping, a utility room provides a useful space for carrying out those tasks, as well as offering additional storage space.

A door leads to the outside area and driveway which continues on to the garage at the back of the house.

Large and open, the backyard offers plenty; it is easy to imagine evening meals under a summer sun, or a spring gardening session to add to the garden’s natural splendour.

A tunnel house at the back of the property could aid with those gardening endeavours, as well as several planters ready for use.

While it is easy to maintain, the garden provides copious possibility for those with a green thumb. The home is close to shops and schools.
