About our House: Our home is situated in a quiet cul-d-sac, nestled against a generous tree lined greenway, which allows for safe, walking, jogging, cycling, strollers & scooters etc. These greenways are a feature of our small town & are very family friendly.
Our home is naturally warm, & catches all day sun. We do have air conditioning, although seldom need to use it, due to well appointed windows & doors & the resulting natural air flow. For the winter months we have a log burner, which helps heat our large 180m2 home. The home is fully carpeted.
We have 4 bedrooms, 3 double & 1 single. 2 of the double bedrooms have queen sized beds, the 3rd has two single beds. The fourth bedroom is set up as an office, although has a cot nestled into one corner.
The lounge & dining rooms are open plan & adjoin a well appointed kitchen. The dining room opens out onto a cobbled courtyard, & features a built in barbeque, with a servery. We have installed a shade sail & outdoor furniture completes the setting.
We have a well established garden, with mature trees lining the side & back boundaries. Ample grassed area creates a relaxed setting. The garage is joined to the house & there is ample off street & on street parking.
Cental Otago is New Zealand's most inland region, also the hottest, coldest & driest.
It has magnifcient natural & historic wealth, expansive landscapes, defned seasons, distintive heritage, year round curling, wine trails & New Zealand's first Rail Trail.
Cromwell is currently celerbrating 150 years of gold discovery.
