Home of the week – 57 St Andrew St, Richmond, Invercargill


GET ready to be surprised, delighted and gobsmacked by this tastefully renovated 1910 villa.

What you will see on the outside will not prepare you for what lies waiting for you behind the beautifully restored doors.

The home has been thoughtfully renovated to retain its 19th century character while managing to tick off the wishlist items of modern living.

The home’s original stained glass windows still feature throughout the home, while neutral decor offsets the beautifully restored, eye-catching classic woodwork.

The kitchen is a social butterfly’s dream as it has been carefully designed with entertaining in mind.

The butler’s pantry, with its own sink and set of appliances, offers the luxury value of an additional food preparation room.

Sliding doors connect the dining room to an outdoor dining spot on the west side of the home – complete with a water feature, while the lounge provides an indoor-outdoor living option.

A walk-in wardrobe and en suite now services the master bedroom of the three-bedroom house.

The blended industrial-monochromatic bathroom design, featuring marble tile, a large free-standing bath and ship lap walls, is sympathetic to the era of the home.

Each of the bedrooms has a privacy screen to allow light in but, at the same time, retain optimum privacy.

Hush glass has also been installed to dampen any road noise tempted to intrude your piece of Richmond paradise.

At the rear of the house, a single, internal access garage with an automatic door opener makes parking a dream.

It’s hard to believe so much has been packed on to this town-house size section, which is a mere two-and-a-half block walk away from Invercargill’s glorious Queen’s Park.

This house is an unpack and relax opportunity, as all the work has been done.
