In­spired by the ca­sual el­e­gance of the clas­sic Queens­lan­der, this won­der­fully invit­ing four-bed­room home pro­vides all the vi­tal ne­ces­si­ties for a re­laxed life­style, in­clud­ing spec­tac­u­lar views

The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - PROPERTY OF THE WEEK - ALICIA NALLY

PANORAMIC views and cool breezes from the slopes of Mt Sheri­dan set this Queens­lan­derin­spired home apart from oth­ers in the sub­urb.

Af­ter ac­cept­ing a job in Roma two months ago, val­uer Gary Cot­ter de­cided to put his fourbed­room, two-bath­room home on the mar­ket af­ter 17 years.

The sprawl­ing build­ing fea­tures tulip oak pol­ished floors and a back ve­randa which is the per­fect spot to un­wind af­ter work and take in stun­ning views to Green Hill, Walsh’s Pyra­mid and all the way to Rus­sell Heads.

De­signed to catch the north-east­erly breeze, Mr Cot­ter said the nat­u­ral cool­ing sys­tem meant the air con­di­tion­ing was only used in the main bed­room a cou­ple of weeks a year.

A fit­ness and out­door ac­tiv­ity en­thu­si­ast, Mr Cot­ter said an area un­der­neath the house was the per­fect place for a home gym and to store ca­noes and other equip­ment.

“I com­pleted build­ing the place in early 1999. I love my Queens­lan­der-style homes and I’ve tried to repli­cate a Queens­lan­der with a more func­tional de­sign,” he said.

“You come up the front steps and into the house and we’ve got away from that de­sign where the bed­rooms all come off the lounge room. We’ve kept the lounge room sep­a­rate.”

With a servery link­ing the kitchen to the ve­randa, Mr Cot­ter said the space was per­fect for gath­er­ings with friends and fam­ily.

And, si­t­u­ated just 12km from the CBD, a run into work av­er­ages 16 min­utes.

Cairns Prop­erty Of­fice sales agent Jon Snell said the prop­erty was per­fect for a fam­ily.

“If you had teenage kids they could vir­tu­ally do their own thing down­stairs in the fourth bed­room and there are three good-sized bed­rooms up­stairs,” he said.

“The whole de­sign of the house is about catch­ing the breeze so it cuts down on your en­ergy bills. It’s not your run-of-the-mill block home.”

The main bed­room fea­tures a walk-in robe and en­suite in­clud­ing two basins and a re­mote dou­ble lockup garage will keep all the toys safe and sound.

The prop­erty has been listed for sale at $480,000.
