The house is located within walking distance of the university, hospital, local shops and bus stops and half a block to the river and its shaded walks. Lavarack Barracks is a short drive away. Its location would make it an ideal investment property even though it is in a prestige suburb.
The modest exterior belies the space and comfort inside. The kitchen boasts a 3 metre island bench and breakfast bar, new stainless steel appliances and a huge pantry. The tiled kitchen, dining and family area is open plan and this area has a soaring cathedral ceiling. This open plan area is enclosed by 3 walls of sliding glass which affords views to the lush tropical garden in the back area. This tropical setting can also be enjoyed from the covered patio which is large enough to cater for an outside dining setting.
The 3 bedrooms all have views to the garden. Each bedroom has built-in wardrobes and shelving, ceiling fans, air conditioning, blinds and carpets. Carpets to the main room are brand new. All 3 bedrooms also have television and phone outlets. The interior has been freshly painted. The colour scheme is basically neutral with a couple of feature walls which can easily and cheaply be repainted should they not suit the new owner.
The double garage with remote control roller door, leads straight to the kitchen for easy transfer of groceries. In addition to the casual living area is a completely separate formal lounge which also looks on to and is accessible to the garden ourtyard.
Both the main bathroom and the ensuite are extremely large and there is also a walk-in storage cupboard off the hall.
The hard work in the garden is already completed, with shrubs and perennials established. Mowing is minimal as, in addition to the footpath, there is only a small turfed area at the back to be mowed. This turfed area is enclosed by tropical gardens. A detachable sail enhances the back area.
The gardens are serviced by automatic sprinklers. The owner has been away for 5.5 months of the last 12 and the garden is still in good condition which is a testament to good design and appropriate planting.
