Foreign buyers get chance to plunge in
FOREIGN investors are expected to flood in for the chance to buy a slice of Cairns.
A newly-built four-bedroom house was listed this week on Temora Cl in the blue chip suburb of Edge Hill.
Vacant land and new houses are rare to find in the established suburb at the foothills of Mt Whitfield, real estate agent Ross Moller said.
“It can be sold to overseas buyers because it has never been lived in,” Mr Moller said.
“It is the first brand new house to be built in Edge Hill in about the last eight to 10 years.”
Owner Darren Sands said he bought the Temora Cl acreage lot about 10 years ago and decided to subdivide a portion of the site about two years ago.
“It’s a flat 900sq m block, which is very hard to come by in Edge Hill,” Mr Sands said.
“I built a four-bedroom, twobathroom (house) with a media room, study and a fantastic plunge pool.”
Mr Sands, who will remain living in a house on the other portion of the Temora Cl block, said the neighbourhood was quiet and friendly.
“People walk their dogs past and wave. “It’s a very quiet location.” The house will have its first Four bedrooms Two bathrooms Office Inground pool 900sq m block Air-conditioning Tiled flooring Media room/second living area Stone kitchen bench tops Close of Edge Hill cafes and restaurants “open home” showing today.
“It is brand new with a sevenyear builder’s warranty on it.
“It’s a beautiful one-level house with big bedrooms.”
Mr Sands said the only thing left to do was to create a “garden backdrop” at the rear of the house.
Agent Mr Moller said the house was immaculate and purposely designed for the tropical climate with airconditioning, tiled flooring and neutral colours throughout.
“The property is elevated in upper Edge Hill, just moments away from the Edge Hill hub of restaurants, cafes and shops, Tanks precinct, Botanical Gardens, Red and Blue Arrow walking tracks and only a short drive to the domestic and international airports,” Mr Moller said.
