WHETHER buying your first home or as a rental investment, this home on Milford St in Heidelberg is full of surprises.
The three-bedroom family home may be ideal for anyone wanting to get on the property ladder, especially anyone who may be thinking of using their KiwiSaver.
Another option could be buying it as a rental investment, especially as the vendors have indicated they would like to stay on as tenants.
Only a block away from Aurora College in South Invercargill, the 1970s-era home is also close to other learning centres and within an eight-minute drive to the South City shopping area.
With aluminium windows and low maintenance, all the hard work has been done, with an updated decor, new carpet and drapes.
While the exterior may remind people of an earlier era, the interior has been modernised in subtle tones.
Enter through the back door to the modernised galley kitchen, which leads to the open-plan dining area and lounge.
The original brick fireplace, which stretches almost the length of the lounge, and hearth, have been updated to make a decorative feature. This houses a vented gas fire which adds to the ambience of the home.
As well as the gas fire, there is also a choice of heating by a heat pump, and a DVS heat transfer system.
The home has three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, with the master also boasting a fibrous plaster ceiling feature.
Flooded with all-day light, the top bedroom, which overlooks the well-fenced backyard, has plenty of potential, and could be used as a bedroom, hobby room or office.
The modernised bathroom has a shower, toilet and vanity.
There is also a separate laundry room.
The easy care, fenced section has plenty of space for the children or pets to play.
At the rear of the property is the single detached garage.
