AUTHENTIC CHARM MEETS PRACTICAL
72 Queens Road, HERMIT PARK QLD 4812
A rare treat – a true Queenslander that captures and enhances the essence of its past, while offering a practical home for the modern family.
The character of this highset home is immediately noticeable as you arrive, with handrails, casement windows and railings all lovingly taken back to timber, perfectly set against the rural-styled front yard complete with gum tree.
From the front veranda, a large timber front door with stained glass panes opens to a completely repainted home that while original in feel and presentation, has been updated, with asbestos removed, new powerboard, and NBN connected.
The home has all of the features typical of the era, with polished timber floors, breezeways above the doors, stained glass features, picture rails, and a charming timber arch dividing the lounge and dining area.
The layout is traditional and practical and designed to capture the breezes, with divided living/dining and adjacent separate kitchen with double pantry, a dishwasher, ample cupboards and original stove alcove.
There are three bedrooms in total – all with polished floors, screened casement windows, and free-standing wardrobes & draws that can stay.
Charm oozes from the family bathroom – the beautiful washstand, free standing bath and timber floors all adding to the appeal. A second toilet is located on the landing.
Throughout the home and yard, carefully acquired points of interest (such as the 1950’s ornamental wall phone) show the care and attention to detail of the current owners – the home is full of character and charm.
A standard height for this era, the home is concreted and enclosed underneath, and contains a laundry and separate store area.
The 809 sq m block features a sparkling in-ground pool and side vegie gardens.
Located at the back of the block is the 3m high 6 x 6 garage plus a 6 x 6 carport at the front and 15 amp power. A separate shed in the pool area gives you storage for pool equipment and garden supplies.
With school catchments including Hermit Park Primary and Pimlico High this location is second to none.
Hermit Park has long been a popular suburb with good reason, located between the major attractions of Townsville, easy access to shopping, sporting and entertainment.
