There is a small window for negotiation but a smaller window before we decide downsizing is not an option.
BIG RIVER VIEWS, BIG HOUSE This 2009 built home meets every genuine buyers expectations. Breath taking 5 bedroom modern Queenslander is situated on an acre of flat land overlooking the beautiful Black River!!! This house almost has an old style charm, but its mixed with some clever modern design features to create a very unique and liveable home. It certainly has the Wow Factor, and is built to withstand the elements having been through no less than 2 major cyclones. That said this steel frame home is, elevated, ventilated and built for the location. It compliments and doesnt impose on the beautiful natural surrounds - country living with city conveniences.
Set right back from the road, this house is designed for privacy plus. The current owners loved the views so much that they deliberately oriented the house to face the river. That being the case you will actually drive up to the side of the house, with a pleasing frontage this is only improved by walking around the side to enjoy the large decks, open vista and ever changing river outlook. Inspection is sure to delight and you certainly wont want to rely on a drive-by for your first impression on this one.
When you first enter this property you immediately get a feeling of peace and tranquillity. The home is surrounded by low maintenance gardens, well planned front, side and back yard areas, and a relaxing pool and entertainment/back deck area plus a massive shed/double garage. This 9 year old energy efficient and elevated steel frame home has been designed, built and positioned to capture the breezes and stay cool - a must have in our North Queensland summers. That said the design also allows for lots of natural daylight and the sunshine literally spills in to warm the tiled floors on those crisp winters mornings.
Built in 3 sections there is a central open kitchen/dining/lounge area which includes a convenient guest room/study. This area is perfect for shared family living and entertaining. The first wing has a very generously sized private parents retreat which opens onto the back deck and pool. The second wing provides a separate teenager or childrens space complete with 3 bedrooms, bathroom, toilet and a large rumpus room. This clever and creative layout provides a very unique design with the opportunity for shared family space and privacy too.
Set in the middle of the growth corridor of the northern suburbs of Townsville this impressive property would suit a large or blended family. You could even use the separate spaces to accommodate aging parents etc. Lots of possibilities.
Positioned in a quite area this home is situated in Tamarind Park Estate between the banks of Black River and Mt Kilburn. Its just minutes away from major shopping such as Coles, Woolworths, Super Cheap Auto, Bunnings and BCF. A Doctors Surgery, Dentist, Veterinary Surgery, multiple pharmacies, bottle shops and a gymnasium complete the local offerings with more to come as Stocklands continues with expansion plans for their Northshore development.
Just 20 minutes easy drive from the CBD and popular strand areas. This is country living at its best with city comforts and convenience nearby. Popular beachside hamlets of Saunders Beach and Toolakea are only 10 minutes away and make a great spot for last minute Sunday beach outings.
