Don'tcha just love the Queenslander architectural style? The defining trait of being built on stumps raising the structure well above the ground, enclosed subfloor area, staircases, high set timber framed dwellings with corrugated iron roofs and characteristic verandahs extending around the house.
This lovely home in the Oakover Place cul-de-sac is built with a Queenslander theme in mind and is a welcome departure from Northam's oversupplied current build style of limestone-like bricks and Colorbond roofs.
An inspection will impress. Obvious walk-up features are the gravelled and waterwise native gardens, natural timber verandah boards and bannister, 20 electric solar panels on the roof making this a very inexpensive electric home to operate.
Open, light, bright and airy is what comes to mind as you step from the verandah to the interior. You'll agree that 'there is room to swing two cats' so much so that this owner has decided to use one end of the living room as their study/workstation area. It's near the front door and is more like a hotel lobby or foyer rather than an entrance hall.
It's a very clean, neat and tidy house just like it was when built new in 2015. The floors are easy-care tile or timber plank style vinyl and the two bathrooms and laundry gleam like they've never been used. There's loads of storage compartments; the main bedroom's walk-in robe, kitchen's walk-in pantry, laundry's double door linen press, passage's linen press, robe recesses in the two other bedrooms.
The carport occupies the full depth of the house, can be locked but with the gates open allows access up a long brick paved driveway from the street verge to the back yard of the property.
There's an efficient heat-pump hot water unit that costs hardly anything to run and rain water from the roof is stored in two 5 000 litre tanks so gardens cost hardly anything to maintain. This property also has ceiling fans, evaporative and reverse cycle air conditioning.
Who would go to the expense and trouble of insulating beneath the floorboards to ensure that any hot or cold breezes passing below the house dont affect the interior climate? This fastidious owner has.
The house is ready to sell and the owners are ready to move. Steve Hill and Lara Turnbull are ready to arrange your inspection any time you're ready to go.
