Home of the week – 14 Grey St, Gladstone, Invercargill


PICTURE perfect is how to describe this large family home in the heart of Gladstone.

This fully-renovated spacious abode, has been renovated to an exceptional standard and is ready for its new owners to move in.

The home was built at a time when builders were craftsmen, and still has many of its period features for the new owners to admire.

The detailing on the front veranda, period tiled fireplace in the lounge, as well as wooden archways inside the home, are testament to the era in which it was built – during the early 1900s.

But don’t be deceived, this property is not just full of details of yesteryear.

This home has been masterly transformed and adapted for modern-day living.

No more is this obvious than in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area and the addition of the wonderful master suite, which includes a walk-in wardrobe and en suite.

The sizeable kitchen space, complete with butcher’s block island, will be the perfect preparation location for any home chef. The ample pantry space and storage means there is a place for everything and the six-burner hob means catering for large groups will be a breeze.

The living area is streamed in light, with bifolding doors which lead to an enormous, north-facing entertaining space.

To the front of the house there is another cosier lounge space, a perfect secluded area to escape.

There are a further three bedrooms, large family bathroom, expansive laundry and separate toilet with diesel radiators in the home, to keep everyone warm and toasty.

The cottage garden outside is immaculate and the addition of the tunnel house out the back, means there is an opportunity to grow food.

As well, there is a five-car garage with further storage areas, for those who like to tinker at home.

This home, unlike others of its era, is light, bright and spacious and simply a home of perfection.
