Dunedin is the second-largest city in the South Island and is a stronghold of Scottish culture and a nature lover's paradise all in one. The city has a diverse economy, which includes manufacturing, publishing, and tourism. It is home to the University of Otago and students account for a large portion of its population, making it an ideal city to live in for both working professionals and families with children.

There are many great examples of Victorian and Edwardian architecture in Dunedin, but the general housing stock is made up of more modern and contemporary buildings. Whether you choose to live in the inner city, the hinterland, or one of Dunedin's many suburbs, there are a range of housing options to match your needs and preferences. 

The climate in Dunedin is known for be temperate, however, the cold and damp winters means that many older homes can benefit greatly from new or improved insulation and heating solutions. Refresh's renovation specialists can advise on available materials and options, and help you work out what suits your home best. It’s also worth paying attention to your home’s roofing style and materials to ensure you live in a dry and healthy house. Depending on your requirements, you can choose to do as little or as much to your house as is practical at the time.
