Situated on a large 809sqm allotment with an address that puts everything Townsville has to offer at your doorstep - transformed through an absolute labour of love by the current owner, this home combines a wonderful mix of local heritage with renovations that add modern comforts to deliver a property that would suit a range of buyers, especially those with parents living with them or teenagers desiring a "space of their own".
The tiled and lockable front patio and entry foyer combine to add privacy and style to a space where you can pull up a chair or slip off your shoes, with clear delineation between the entrance and the rest of the home. By cleverly combining original period and new decorative features (including high ceilings, leadlight details, dado rails, hand-applied wall textured finishes and timber flooring) the air-conditioned and open-plan lounge / dining and kitchen area has been given a warmth and charm that makes it immediately inviting. The modern kitchen includes the convenience of a NEW Bosch Pyrolytic under-bench oven, rangehood and loads of practical storage solutions.
The 3 air-conditioned bedrooms are ample in size, and all feature custom-made timber blinds and built-in wardrobes. The renovated bathroom has the convenience of a walk-in shower with waterfall shower-head, floor-standing vanity and built-in storage; there is a separate toilet and located off the laundry is a practical utility-room with a range of built-in storage solutions.
The home now boasts an extensive list of recent up-grades, including:
- New roof and insulation
- 5Kw solar power system
- Clearguard security screens installed
- Custom-made timber blinds throughout
- Electrical rewiring
- Replacement steel stumps.
The large rear entertainment area is perfect for relaxing or entertaining with family and friends; and the perfect all-weather play area for children. The high, secure fencing perfectly complements the rendered exterior of the home and offers the practicality of double-gate side access to a large concrete area that's ideal for storing a boat, trailer or caravan - in addition to the covered dual car accommodation. The meticulously-maintained and well-established lawns and gardens (including vegetable gardens), a range of mature fruit trees, and the large chook pen with chook house (the 2 chickens can stay) will allow a return to a quintessential "old-fashioned" family upbringing.
TEENAGER'S / RELATIVE'S RETREAT:
Colorbond steel construction with easy-care flooring, split-system air-conditioning and security screens throughout this is the perfect space to accommodate the large or extended family. The open-plan living and kitchen area (with loads of storage solutions) is situated on the right; a large bedroom is centrally located; and situated to the left is a bathroom / toilet and laundry area (with own gas hot-water supply). The large (15m x 3m) concreted, full-length patio area with latticework for additional privacy provides the perfect outdoor area for entertaining or relaxing.
