Two homes in one

The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - Front Page -

Ross Moller and Vanessa Robin­son from LJ Hooker Edge Hill sold 28 Ole­an­der Dr, Yungaburra, for $1.2 mil­lion. The house in­cor­po­rates two homes in one. With an em­pha­sis on life­style, the two lev­els, com­plete with their own kitchens and bath­rooms, make it ideal for guests, or a bed and break­fast sit­u­a­tion. There are three bed­rooms, both up and down, mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas and ex­ter­nal en­ter­tain­ment zones. A SLICE of the Cairns North Es­planade is for sale but be quick – ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est are due to end next month.

The free­hold prop­erty with eight bed­rooms and two kitchens has been listed by Cairns agent Ni­cholas Slatyer.

“The own­ers built the house for them­selves (in 2004),” Mr Slatyer said.

“The floor plan is very flex­i­ble, of­fer­ing lots of room for large fam­i­lies with liv­ing rooms both up and down, two kitchens and two laun­dries.

“The house can be lived in as one home, or con­fig­ured in a few dif­fer­ent ways – oc­cu­pied and rented down­stairs or rented up and down sep­a­rately.

“Al­ter­na­tively, the house would make an ex­cel­lent hol­i­day rental if own­ers wanted an in­come.”

The agent said The Es­planade was one of the most tightly-held lo­ca­tions in Cairns and free­hold lots were rarely avail­able.

“Be­ing so close to the CBD and hav­ing the bike paths, walk­ing tracks and amaz­ing views is so hard to find,” he said.

“The own­ers are down­siz­ing and in­tend­ing to travel some more.”

The mod­ern house with a sprawl­ing open-plan de­sign boasts un­ob­structed views, stacker doors, glass balustrade, qual­ity floor cov­er­ings and a pri­vate in-ground pool.

“I don’t think that a mod­ern home on The Es­planade has ever traded,” Mr Slatyer said.

“Ev­ery home built in the last 15 years is still oc­cu­pied by the own­ers that built them.

“The most re­cent com­pa­ra­ble sales are the two pent­houses we sold in Northshore (about 250m away), which traded in late 2014 for $1.8 mil­lion and $1.85 mil­lion.

“Both of these prop­er­ties have since un­der­gone sig­nif­i­cant, full ren­o­va­tions.”

In­ter­ested buy­ers can sub­mit their of­fers to Mr Slatyer be­fore July 7.
