This five fam­ily bed­room home has star qual­ity, says Bob­bie Ni­cholls

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Rural -

Sited at a de­sir­able ad­dress, close to schools at all lev­els of ed­u­ca­tion, this house has been up­dated to suit a mod­ern fam­ily life­style.

The kitchen is very smart. A wide servery for ca­sual eat­ing, space for a side-by-side fridge­freezer and a dou­ble oven, this would suit a cook who likes to en­ter­tain or a fam­ily who en­joy pre­par­ing meals to­gether. This is the heart of the home and as well as the large din­ing area and open-plan lounge, there is am­ple space ad­join­ing the kitchen for a desk for chil­dren to do home­work or for tod­dlers to play close to adult su­per­vi­sion.

Both the lounge and the din­ing area open to ter­races, front and back re­spec­tively, for al fresco din­ing and face north and west so re­ceive all day sun into the late evening. With no large trees to shade the house, the liv­ing area utilises all the avail­able sun­shine, even in re­cent cool weather. New car­pet through­out adds to the warmth of the house, which has a wood-fire for heat­ing.

Three dou­ble bed­rooms on this level are all a good size with wardrobes. The fam­ily bath­room has been mod­ernised with a new bath, shower and van­ity, and neu­tral tiles for a sleek mod­ern dé­cor and easy clean­ing. A sep­a­rate toi­let is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble from the liv­ing ar­eas or from the garage-work­shop.

Up­stairs is the par­ents’ pri­vate suite. A huge master bed­room has a good sized en­suite bath­room with a shower and also a walk-in wardrobe to please any­one who loves clothes. This is the retreat space where mum and dad can talk in peace on com­fort­able chairs, read a book or watch tele­vi­sion away from the noise of a busy fam­ily. The dou­ble-glazed pic­ture win­dow gives a lofty evening view of the sun set­ting be­hind the western hills of Feild­ing.

A fifth bed­room on this floor would make ei­ther a warm nurs­ery so the lit­tlest mem­ber of the fam­ily is close to par­ents, or a large of­fice from which to run a busi­ness or study in pri­vate.

But wait - there’s more!

This se­cond storey has been re­cently con­structed above a new dou­ble garage/ work­shop and laun­dry plus a third garage which is cur­rently set up as a man-cave, com­plete with bar. The whole area is car­peted, so, whether work­ing on a me­chan­i­cal project, get­ting in­volved in a space-tak­ing hobby or watch­ing rugby in the bar-room with friends, this is a cosy space. Sep­a­rate roller doors on the dou­ble and sin­gle garage mean they can be used as in­di­vid­ual spa­ces which could be very use­ful for a fam­ily with gre­gar­i­ous teens or dif­fer­ent in­ter­ests.

The grounds are easy care with room for a tram­po­line and veg­etable gar­den and hid­den gar­den sheds. Be­fore sale, the con­crete drive will be up­graded for easy ac­cess and park­ing.
