First Home Owners or Renovators Grab This Little Gem!!!
This solid red brick family home offers a great position located on a quiet street with a park, only minutes from Earlville Shopping Centre, and less than 10 mins drive from the Cairns CBD. Offering a variety of possibilities, owner occupy and renovate, rent as is, or easily update for additional rental income and capital appreciation.
The house has great bones, solid construction and would be easy to modernise. Although an older home, it has an open plan aspect and taking out the kitchen wall would create a modern, open plan layout. If you are a renovator then a new kitchen and bathroom would dramatically increase the value of the home. The red brick can be rendered which would make the home almost indistinguishable from a new home.
The lock up garage has room for two cars one behind the other, with an additional room at the rear that can be used for extra living space, sewing room, or man cave. I've sold many houses of this era, and the garage can be full enclosed as extra rooms, bedrooms, and have the potential (with council approval) to be used for home-based businesses.
The house is neat and tidy inside, and has just been painted throughout. The main open-plan living and bedrooms have polished timber floors throughout. The bathroom is original and although dated is neat and clean. The toilet has been renovated with decorative timberwork.
The front verandah looks over the in ground pool, with views past a row of gracious coconut palms to the mountains in the distance, a great space to sit back at the end of the day, have a cold beer and watch the sun set.
At the rear of the house is a lovely garden with mature shady trees, and a concrete pad for a tool shed, and plenty of space for the kids to play.
It has a potential rental income of $300 - $330pw (as is), and rental availability in Cairns is below 1.5%, with strong demand for inner city houses. Earlville is app. 4km from the Cairns CBD and offers good possibility for capital appreciation.
