Kicking back in Palmerston North, this black brick beauty with cedar garage door is perfectly suited to the modern professional couple or a young family. At a modest yet spacious-feeling 139sqm, it represents a fantastic first step on the property ladder or a tempting upgrade from an old cottage or unit. With large windows, classic forms and a covered entrance, it’s inviting from the get-go. Wood-look plank flooring draws you into the dining space. This area provides a perfect perspective on the brilliant galley kitchen with central island breakfast bar. The choice of finishes and fixtures speaks to good taste. The discreet butler’s pantry is ideal for messy jobs and is awash in natural light thanks to good-sized windows. Entertaining is a breeze through bifold doors. They allow the living area to spill onto a private patio for enjoying meals alfresco. Three bedrooms include the inviting master with ensuite. This private sanctuary has a tiled double glass shower and walk-in wardrobe. The home also has a second bathroom, double garage, laundry and storage.
