This week’s House of the Week – 35 John St, Otatara


FRESH and modern, this week’s home offers semi-rural living in quiet Otatara.

Ideal for a family, this four-bedroom house has plenty of outdoor space for children, pets and any keen gardeners – the patio also provides a sheltered space for outdoor entertaining.

The kitchen is the first space through the front door, as well as a tidy utility room to the right.

Clean, bright and with plenty of surface space, the kitchen is ideal for meal time prep – an electric cook top, oven and dishwasher are all included.

Open plan with the dining room, the space has function and flow.

Next door is the large and open lounge – soft carpet and a heat pump keep this space warm in winter and the sliding door to the patio keeps it cool in summer.

Several windows brighten the room with natural light.

Down the adjoining hallway are the bathroom and separate toilet.

Bright and modern, the bathroom feels clean and tidy and is fitted with a sink and mirror, shower and bath.

The master bedroom is nearby, which is equally bright.

A generous size, it is fitted with built-in storage for clothing and items, as well as a sliding door to the garden.

Three more double bedrooms are found down the hallway, two of them with built-in storage.

A cupboard in the hallway provides additional storage space to keep the home clutter-free.

The space outside offers sanctuary and privacy.

Fully fenced, the garden provides an area for play, contemplation and many other outdoor activities.

The patio space also offers an area for barbecues and outdoor eating.

Wide and open, the gravelled driveway offers parking for at least three cars, as well as the large garage providing extra storage space for vehicles or belongings.

Fitted with power, the garage can be used as a workshop, and an additional room can be used for hobbies or as an office space.Running sportsGirls Air Jordan
