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.
