PRIVACY and beauty, this Otago home has got both in spades.
It is set on 9841sqm of land, which provides a quiet, relaxed lifestyle.
And the sunny position, like many Otago homes, offers jaw-dropping views of Mount Wellington across the River Derwent.
On the entry level there is an open-plan living zone that forms the heart of the home.
There is a well-equipped kitchen with quality appliances and stone benchtops, a dining and sitting room that open to a timber deck, plus a living room with picture windows that frame the mesmerising outlook over the water.
The laundry is also on this level.
Take the stairs upwards and level two reveals a couple of double-sized bedrooms serviced by a dual-access ensuite.
Each bedroom makes the most of the superb views.
The master offers that little something extra with its private deck.
The home’s vaulted ceilings create a sense of space, while the wood heater makes the home cosy through the cooler months.
Next stop is the studio, located out in the yard and easily accessed from the main home by a walkway.
The studio could be suited to a range of uses, but is currently used as luxury pet accommodation.
The house is surrounded by lovely low-maintenance native gardens.
There are figs, magnolia and lilac trees, ensuring an abundance of birdlife.
The property also features a garage with additional storage space, plus solar panels.
Desirably located, this property is set on a quiet no-through road.
No.83 Direction Drive, Otago is listed with Ripple Realty and priced at “Offers over $795,000”.
CoreLogic figures show eight Otago house sales in the 12 months to the end of April.
Currently, this property is the only Otago home on the market.
