There is renovation work to be performed to restore this property to its former glory, however developers, investors and/ or home owners with passion will realise this will be well worth the time and effort.
Location says it all with this size property and there is ample surrounding carparking to meet the needs of various other non-residential land uses with potential plus and STCA. Close to many Schools, Civic Centre, Hermit Park Shops and The Stadium, this property on Railway Avenue leads to the Heart of Townsville.
The white picket fence hides a distinctive entrance to a solid brick home with polished timber floors and wide hallway leading to generous rooms throughout. With an original styled kitchen and bathroom, a spacious internal laundry with plenty of storage completes the home. At the side is a self- contained ‘Granny Flat’ with a large adjoining outdoor shade patio. Airconditioning and fans provide the necessities in the main rooms and the orientation of the home allows natural breezes to flow through while the floor is elevated to catch under house cooling. Architectural features are everywhere you look, with window treatments, stained glass, ornate ceilings, picture rails, electrical and hardware fitments all coming together with a back- drop of neutral colors and timber finishes. The bathroom is ‘retro original’ and the kitchen, modern in its day is another area for some work to do. Home Buyers with renovating skills looking for an individual home need to look seriously at this large property holding and will be suitably impressed.
