Positioned in one of Hyde Park’s if not Townsville’s best known areas, this traditional Queenslander home in Ethel Street consists of three wonderful sized bedrooms as well as a study/sleep out at the front which could be converted into a fourth bedroom. The kitchen features a large rosewood bench, huge pantry and modern appliances including gas cook top & Smeg stove. The kitchen overlooks the dining area, which has access to the rear deck. This home is perfect for entertaining as it has 2 very large patios, the rear one boasting great views of Castle Hill. The traditional bathroom has a claw foot bath & separate shower recess. Open planned living is at its best here with a large air-conditioned living area which opens onto the verandas. There are high ceilings, polished timber floors, ceiling roses, casement windows, timber louvres, traditional archways as well as French doors that all add to the charm of yesteryear that this original Queenslander possesses. The front veranda over looks the lush tropical gardens and Magnesium swimming pool – your own resort at home. Downstairs offers a spacious studio or teenagers retreat, as well as a separate storage room. This property was lucky enough to be high and dry during the recent floods. The room that the 814m2 block provides is great for a family and the fact that the house is so close to the city this home is sure to impress. Call now to inspect.
