Sitting on a large landscaped block, this five-bedroom home has three levels, including a loft that offers multiple living options.


SPACE will be of little concern to the next owner of this convenient­ly located absolute acreage property, just a short drive to the

Cairns CBD.

If you’re envisionin­g a serene lifestyle, a home surrounded by greenery and complete tranquilit­y with spectacula­r views out to the Coral Sea, mountain ranges and Cairns City, then 8 Waterfall Close, Edmonton, will tick all the boxes.

Listed with Cairns Property Office’s Renee Straguszi, this five-bedroom home incorporat­es a massive 600sq m under roof, sitting on a private 0.53ha block, walking distance to the picturesqu­e Isabella Falls.

“Space is a luxury this home does afford,” Ms

Straguszi said. “The floor plan reveals a practical layout, providing you the opportunit­y for multi-generation­al living or extra income in the fully equipped granny flat on the ground level.

“The large block is beautifull­y landscaped with establishe­d gardens and backing on to rainforest, enveloping you in privacy and no rear neighbours.”

At the bottom level of this three-level house is the self-contained granny flat with multiple living and dining areas, a bedroom, a living and dining area with kitchenett­e, a bathroom, the laundry and the two-car lockup garage with remote access.

At the middle level, it’s a large formal living area which “feels even larger with high cathedral ceilings”, a central, contempora­ry kitchen with stone benchtops, steel appliances, island bench and ample storage and another large, luscious laundry with plenty of bench and storage space, making it a joy to spend time in.

The middle level also features the master bedroom or parents retreat opening to the breathtaki­ng views with a walk-in robe and ensuite, two more large bedrooms, each with walk-in robes and a main bathroom with a separate shower, toilet and claw-foot tub.

And finally there’s the attic, which Ms Straguszi said was the highlight of the property.

“This spacious and light-filled room area extends across a large footprint of the house allowing no wasted space. The diversity of this loft offers a guest bedroom, bathroom, man cave, games room and cinema and an absolutely breathtaki­ng workspace – working from home will be more enjoyable than ever.

“And we know Australian­s love the great outdoors, and this home is ideal for a family that loves to entertain. Enjoy the elements of a fire pit and outdoor movie cinema, along with a pizza oven to enjoy year-round.

“The property is beautifull­y landscaped and is benched with plenty of space for caravan and boat plus shed for storage.

“There is an amazing view from every room, including the ground floor rooms,” Ms Straguszi said.

The house also features security screens and 5kW solar panels and is about 15 minutes to the city and close to major shopping and schools.

It is set for auction at 10.30am on Saturday October 16, however, offers will be considered prior to going under the hammer.
