Built in 1965, this immaculately preserved mid-century modern house in the much sought-after suburb of Mundingburra pays homage to the homes of the decade.
Situated on a slightly elevated, low maintenance block and featuring fashionable elements of Australian Architecture, this delightful rectangular home is a perfect example. This is evident in the quirky geometric forms in the angled roof, the wrought iron balustrades on the patio, the brick breezeway in the carport and the olive-green tones giving a muted pop of colour.
Enter the home via the tiled patio and into a spacious living room. You immediately notice the classic textured walls and newly sanded and polished floorboards. Continue through to the central heart of the home. The kitchen is huge and preserved in original condition and exuberating the charm of the 60's, complete with glass sliding door overheads and a breakfast bar facing the dining room. To your left and down the hallway with large linen and broom cupboard are three bright, airy bedrooms and the original pale pink tiled bathroom.
The house enjoys the modern luxuries of air-conditioning, ceiling fans and security screens throughout.
Located in Mundingburra amongst a mixture of pre- and post-war properties, the southern boundary of the suburb backs onto the Ross River. Take a stroll around the corner to Anderson Park Botanic Gardens and admire the tropical trees, palms or even feed the ducks in the lily pond. Within walking distance to some of Townsville's most prestigious schools, churches, public swimming pools, TAFE and only minutes from Stockland Shopping Centre, this loved family home is a time capsule to an era of simpler times.
