Private House For Sale By Owner In Mareeba, Queensland
Located in a quiet suburban street in Mareeba, the property offers the casual pace of a country town, yet all the resources and benefits of the thriving tropical city of Cairns, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, are less than an hour’s drive away.
Built circa 1992 on a gently sloping 900M2 fully fenced allotment, which backs onto a council reserve, the house is of masonry block construction with internal timber stud framed walls, lined with Gyprock plasterboard. There is a clay brick feature wall in the lounge room with similar brick features forming planter boxes in the lounge room and the faces of the kitchen extremities. Concrete slab floor throughout the 138M2 internal floor area. The lounge, kitchen, bathroom, laundry and extra separate toilet floors are all ceramic tiled. The master bedroom and single bedroom/study are Kandean timber look flooring and the second double bedroom is carpeted. All internal window and door frames and skirtings are of attractive Queensland Silky Oak timber.
All roof areas are of Colourbond zinc alum, which has recently been treated with Roof Seal Ellemex coating, which has highly reflective and insulative qualities. Whirlybird ventilators have been installed on the roof and generous gable end vents fitted to enhance air circulation. The ceiling throughout the house has a 150mm layer of quality insul wool insulation. The three front facing windows and the entrance porch have aluminium framed Colourbond shade shutters installed.
A 3kva solar power inverter is situated above the power meter/relay box and is fed by 8+6 solar roof panels, giving full power capacity to the inverter. The power box is also arranged so that it can be paralleled with an independent power generator, should the mains power be disrupted. There are ceiling fans fitted throughout the house and all the bedrooms are air conditioned, even though there is little need of them. All external windows and doors have flyscreens and security screens fitted.
Two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a single bedroom which is currently used as a study. Two separate sitting/lounge areas divided by attractive brick planter box features. The main lounge area has a brick feature wall. The generously appointed kitchen has adjoining dining areas situated at either end and these are open to the sitting areas giving a spacious open feel to the house. The kitchen has an electric oven and cook top and a 1 ½ bowl sink with electric waste disposal unit fitted. There is a pantry and generous cupboard space. The bathroom which was fully renovated in 2015 has a vanity and shower and WC and can be accessed either directly from the Master bedroom or from the hallway. The adjoining extra WC is accessed from the hallway. The laundry, which has a full height laundry cupboard, has double tubs, a top loading washing machine and it also houses the 250 litre HW service. The laundry is accessed from the hallway and another door opens to the yard.
The master bedroom and the kitchen and dining areas open onto a shady 14.8M of 3.3M wide verandah. This verandah is open onto the 7.5 X 6.6M paved undercover carport. The remainder of the house is surrounded by concrete footpath with an attractively landscaped paved driveway from the front gate leading to the carport at the rear of the house and then on to the entrance to the new 6X5M steel framed Colourbond shed. The end wall of the master bedroom looks out onto a paved entertainment area leading to a rotary clothes hoist and covered by an attractive 33M2 shade sail. The front and back yards have lawn areas with easy care native shrubs and trees which attract an abundance of native birdlife. The back boundary adjoins a council reserve with native bush and abundant wild life.
All white goods (Two refrigerator freezers, one chest freezer, one 8.5 kg Westinghouse top loader washing machine) are included in the sale price, though no warranties will be issued.
Good local shopping and schools in the area including state, private, primary and secondary schools.
This well-appointed property is priced well below replacement value and is being sold (regrettably) due to the owners relocating overseas. The vendors are highly motivated towards achieving a quick sale.
