This week’s House of the Week – 395 Ness St, Invercargill


THIS week’s House of the Week is a modern two-storey house which is in a great location.

Located close to the hospital, it is ideal for individuals who work there as it is a short walk away, as well as a short drive to the city centre.

The property catches plenty of sunlight and large windows and a sliding door provide the north-facing open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen with copious amounts of natural light.

A heat pump keeps the home cosy during the cooler months, and the house has insulation and double-glazed windows.

With large counter-tops, the kitchen has plenty of space for cooking with good storage options too. It is also equipped with a dishwasher, range hood, electric hood and oven.

With tiled floors, the space is easy to clean when those kitchen-nightmares occur.

Stairs lead to the second floor where there is a master bedroom.

A generous size, sun seeps into the room through the private balcony windows – ideal for summer evenings ahead and overlooks the garden below. Additionally, a walk-in-wardrobe offers a large amount of storage space, and also functions as a walkway to the en suite.

The en suite is fitted with a shower, toilet and vanity unit – privacy and independence to the rest of the home is a perk of having the upstairs bathroom.

Back downstairs, a hallway leads to two double bedrooms, bathroom and utility.

Both bedrooms offer generously sized in-built wardrobes and storage options, as well as further storage in the hallway.

They both have decent-sized windows which allow for sunlight to brighten the rooms.

The toilet is separate from the bathroom and is well lit.

Offering a bath, shower and sink, the bathroom is tiled, meaning it is easy to keep clean and fresh.

The last room down the hallway is the utility room – a washing machine is included and provides a good place to do laundry.

A washing line through the back door sits in a sunny spot in the backyard.

The garden itself offers a grassed area as well as space for planters, with potential to develop the front garden into a large outdoor courtyard.

A shed offers additional storage for tools and equipment.Sports brandsNike
