Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Rural -

Close to schools of all lev­els, bus stops into CBD or the city, cor­ner dairy and the Feild­ing Health Cen­tre, this home would suit a young fam­ily, but also of­fers con­ve­nience for an older cou­ple look­ing for a mod­er­ately priced home in a tidy con­di­tion. Sited be­tween two new blocks of town­houses, and op­po­site a sub­di­vi­sion of up mar­ket houses, this is a great sit­u­a­tion in which to buy.

About ten years ago this solid 1957 weath­er­board home was ren­o­vated with a new roof and kitchen and a new hot wa­ter cylin­der. This means all the most ex­pen­sive up­grad­ing has been done. It has been rented for some years and the grounds look a lit­tle tired, but this is just cos­metic and the 751 m² sec­tion is a great size for a fam­ily who want to grow their own veg­eta­bles, put up a chicken house and still al­low young chil­dren or pets room to run around.

There is a dou­ble-sized garage with a sin­gle roller door, which al­lows plenty of space for a work­shop, stor­age or bloke’s shed in the other half of the lock­able build­ing.

In­side the house is tidy and has large living ar­eas. There is a front door, but that is rarely used as the en­trance fac­ing the drive­way has a good weather-proof porch, shel­ter­ing the door and ef­fec­tively keep­ing the house warmer while pro­vid­ing space for out­door shoes and coats.

The mod­ern all elec­tric kitchen has plenty of cup­board and bench space with a break­fast bar for quick snacks, while the ad­join­ing din­ing area is large and has glazed French doors lead­ing to a good sized lounge. Add doors to a back pa­tio and you could have great in­door-out­door flow for sum­mer living and en­ter­tain­ing.

Also at the rear of the house is the sunny third bed­room which makes a great study, adult read­ing room or play­room for young chil­dren.

Two dou­ble be­d­rooms face the road, but the high wooden fence shields the house and gives pri­vacy from passers-by and sep­a­ra­tion from North Street traf­fic.

The bath­room has a full sized bath and a good shower. The separate toi­let is ac­ces­si­ble from the unusu­ally large laun­dry which al­lows plenty of room for a freezer and also ac­cesses the hot wa­ter cup­board. There is an ad­join­ing linen cup­board in the hall­way, so linen stored there will be well aired.

The age of the house in­di­cates there are prob­a­bly na­tive wood floors un­der the car­pet match­ing the other wood­work through­out the house.

A metro wood fire in the lounge keeps the living and sleep­ing ar­eas cosy mak­ing this a healthy house which only needs mi­nor re­dec­o­rat­ing and a fam­ily to love it.

At $315,000 this could be your first home, or maybe your for­ever home. But only by see­ing it in per­son can you ap­pre­ci­ate its charms.
