Grand Old Queenslander - Walk To Botanical Gardens & Schools

This large 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom Queenslander home sits on an extra-large 870m triangular block. Located on a quiet Street, walking distance to Botanical Gardens, Schools and the Esplanade, with room for a growing family, as well as potential to build underneath or extend the living area; this grand old home has so much potential.

The house was fully renovated in 2011 with new bathroom kitchen, polished floors throughout and large rear deck overlooking the expansive tropical gardens. The owner is in the process of installing glass louvre windows on the rear deck.

The home features all the typical period features of a Queenslander home, vertical joint walls, high ceilings, casement windows, French doors and beautiful polished hardwood floors throughout. The period features are accentuated by modern elements like to large Kitchen with servery window facing onto the rear deck, and modern bathroom with timber louvres. The house is much larger than the typical houses in Cairns North and features two large bedrooms, two smaller bedrooms, and an entry foyer that can double as a child's room or a Study.

When it was renovated it was raised to 3 metres (above legal height). Downstairs is a blank slate, which can be turned into a second living area, extra bedrooms, home office, garage, or potential rental on AirBNB, subject to Council approval. The extra wide 31.3 metre street frontage (3 times normal width for the area), will allow possible extension of the house with an eastern facing deck, or allow room for a large garage. The side access will also allow construction of a pool at the rear of the block.

Marvellously situated with all the Edge Hill amenities and walking distance from the following…

Flecker Botanical Gardens (300m) Mother of Good Counsel Primary School (300m)
Tobruk Pool, Tennis Centre, Hockey Fields (150m)
Red and Blue Arrow walking tracks (200m)

Located in the catchment zones for two of the most sought after schools in Cairns, Edge Hill Primary and Cairns High School. If you value your children's education and want to plan for their future, then this house kills two birds with one stone. You will save thousands of dollars by being in the catchment zone of arguably the two best public schools in Cairns.

This is your chance to move into your Dream Queenslander in time for Christmas and the new school year!
