About our home

Our lovely home was built 8 years ago, on a shared block set in native garden, with lovely views to the Palm Islands, over bays and towards the port of Townsville. nestled under Castle Hill. Family Room/Photo Studio/Spare bed room, 10Metre pool with views, and toys for kids.
Just five minutes from the centre of town with a pathway beside the house for those who would like to walk Castle Hill. Verandahs on two sides of the house, on two levels keep it cool, and airy. Fans and air conditioning in all rooms. Modern kitchen with 6 burner cooker, dishwasher, microwave etc. Study and library. Quiet neighbourhood. We have a dog but can get her cared for and a cat...easy..Townsville is a great arts hub and in 20 minutes you can be walking the beaches of Magnetic Island with gorgeous granite boulders in every bay. A great jump off to the Great Barrier Reef and a drive to local rain forests and waterfalls.
The top level of the house has the kitchen living area with study and library and one spare bedroom and little bathroom. All opening onto a verandah with views. BBQ on verandah too
Mid Level has one billiard room, a studio ( we can put a bed in here if necesssary) 1 double and 3 queen size bedrooms. THe main bedroom has its own en-suite and walk in wardrobe. These rooms lead onto a balcony with lovely views
Another bathroom across the hall and laundry near by back door into little garden with Washing line etc.
Downstairs to an office area, and large ex office which now serves as a rental for a local singing teacher, own entrance with little courtyard outside. Shower and toilet just outside to service this area and the pool area. two cars available to borrow, bicycles.

Townsville has a great selection of cafe's and bars, (don't know them all as we rarely go out!) but have listed the few we have gone to!

We are very involved in the theatre scene here which is of high quality, and some lovely galleries to visit...

The old office downstairs is now rented to a friend but her entrance is private and she will water plants when we are away!
