Old World Charm with Income Potential
This rock solid two storey property, built from hand rendered concrete on bricks, is located in a prime position on the Bruce Highway between Cairns and Townsville, and is zoned "mixed use". Stepping onto the block, time quickly slips away to a bygone era and slower pace of life. Built in approximately 1930 it has many "old-worldly" features such as hand made floor tiles in the front foyer and stunning Italian glass in some of the internal breezeways and doors.
From the three bay parking area directly in front of the house, a concrete ramp as well as steps provide access to the covered front verandah and ground floor front entrance. Additional parking is directly behind the house, along with a 9m x 7.5m Colorbond shed, fitted with separate fuse box and 4 x 10amp and one 15amp power point. The original sheds are also located behind the house, and have new roofing. This space works well as a potting shed, but could easily become a "man cave" with power, lighting and an outside toilet and shower already connected.
The house is fully air-conditioned downstairs with ceiling fans throughout. It is very secure with the majority of ground floor external windows and French doors having been replaced with black powder-coated aluminium and laminated glass. The downstairs living areas are tiled throughout whilst the bedrooms have laminated floorboards. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms and a very large store room or 7th bedroom on the second floor. The second story is currently used as a "teen retreat", and the ground floor is used as a Bed and Breakfast.
The downstairs kitchen is "galley" style and built in very generous proportions, with commercial size sinks, dishwasher, 5 burner gas stove, extra deep benches, and a serving window through into the newly renovated family room at the rear of the home.
Beside the house is a covered parking area/carport that sits alongside the 31m x 3.2m concrete driveway and is currently used for alfresco dining and bbqing.
A 6m container is included in the sale, and nests directly behind the original concrete sheds. The block is almost 1/2 acre and has many mature fruit trees. At the rear there is an established chook yard, mini rainforest area, various "garden rooms" and an additional lawn locker. Fencing covers the majority of the block making the rear yard safe for young children and pets.
Solar panels were added to this property further enhancing the natural money saving features of the home, including 11ft ceilings. The meter box has been fitted with a plug-in socket to switch over to the 7kva generator (included in sale) in the event of cyclone or loss of power. The house has also been fitted with an internal fuse box in the kitchen.
This property is located less than 5 blocks from the heart of town and is easy walking distance to the Tyto Wetlands and Cultural Precinct (including library and art gallery), schools, churches and shops. The house is well set back on the block, with access from a side street, off the highway, the home is very quiet on the inside.
