Queens­lan­ders and spe­cific, ar­chi­tec­turally-de­signed mod­ern rain­for­est homes.”

One home that is cur­rently on the mar­ket, a fully-ren­o­vated, steel-framed rain­for­est home, of­fers the op­por­tu­nity for own­ers to double their liv­ing area.

The three-bed­room, onebath­room home at 17 Jagera Cl, Kamerunga has the scope to be­come a five-bed­room, twobath­room fam­ily home across two lev­els by build­ing in un­der the house on the slabbed down­stairs area.

Mr Reed said the cur­rent own­ers pur­chased the home two years ago with the in­ten­tion to do just that, but never got around it.

“They ren­o­vated the ex­ist­ing house and re­painted it so it’s all ba­si­cally brand new,” he said.

The zero-main­te­nance op­tion makes it a per­fect op­por­tu­nity for those who love the rain­for­est set­ting, but doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily want the high-main­te­nance of a tim­ber home.

“Main­te­nance is quite a big con­cern for buy­ers in a rain­for­est set­ting, es­pe­cially with tim­ber homes, how­ever this is a steel­framed, steel-posted house and is pretty much zero main­te­nance,” Mr Reed said.

“The po­si­tion of the home within the es­tate also en­sures you aren’t over­looked and its en­ter­tain­ing deck looks down over the flat, us­able gar­den area. Al­though there are neigh­bours around you, you’re set up above them.”

The home’s full-length deck of­fers many en­ter­tain­ing and out­door liv­ing op­tions, while the spa­cious, us­able yard pro­vides plenty of room for the kids or the dog to run around and the scope to add a pool, shed or car­port if re­quired.

Priced in the mid-$400,000s, the home would suit young cou­ples and first home buy­ers who would look at trans­form­ing the house into a larger fam­ily home down the track.

FOR SALE: The ren­o­vated home at 17 Jagera Cl, Kamerunga, has been listed in the mid-$400,000s.
