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.
