About This Property:

(Please see our television quality video and 3d tour to really get a sense of what living in this house is really like!)

Sometimes it's really hard to find the right house when combining two big families.  Think "The Brady Bunch".  10 Windarra Avenue in Douglas has EIGHT genuine legal-height bedrooms and completely separate living on two different levels.  Whether you are an investor looking to capitalise on the popularity of suburbs close to the University and Hospital, or you're just trying to find a house that fits your big family - you've got to check this out!  Austart Homes has built an elevated hillside masterpiece here.

There are two kitchens.  There are two laundries.  There are two decks with sparkling city-lights views.  Unfortunately, you'll have to share the amazing swim-spa.  The downstairs "unit" has a separate entrance from the street so if you are renting it out to help cover your mortgage, you'll never see your tenants.  This home has been recently painted and painstakingly prepared for immediate sale.  There's nothing to do but move in and enjoy.

Let's start with the upstairs half of this home.  Yes!  If you want to utilise the whole of your new home for your big family there is an internal staircase connecting the levels.  On the top floor you'll find five genuine bedrooms all with mirrored wardrobes, and split-system air conditioning.  The primary suite is the ultimate parents retreat and those lucky enough to occupy this room will enjoy breathtaking views of the sunrise over Magnetic Island every morning.  The primary suite also includes a large walk-in-wardrobe and an ensuite that features a massive spa tub for those romantic nights in.

From the kitchen, the family chef can take inspiration through the large picture windows while preparing meals for the tribe.  There are five seats at the breakfast bar and a double-sized pantry for storing heaps of snacks.  You'll also find room for a family-sized fridge.  Hauling in the groceries will be a breeze as the adjacent garage is connected directly to the back of the kitchen.  

On this floor you'll also find a brilliant family bathroom, with a vanity both inside and outside the room making the school rush in the mornings easier.  Adjacent to the front door is a private, air conditioned office.  If you work from home and don't want to bring clients into your house - this space is perfect!  Oh!  Oh!  I nearly forgot the upstairs patio.  From here, every evening you can take in city-lights views as the sun goes down behind Harvey Range.  The breeze that comes off of Cleveland Bay year-round makes this one of the most pleasant spots to sit in all of Townsville.  We foresee many evening wines sipped with your best friends here.

On the down-stairs level you will find three full-sized bedrooms, all with split-system air conditioning and built-in wardrobes.  Your older children or Air BnB guests can enter this space via a hidden stairway along the left-hand side of the property.  A lockable door at the top of the internal stairs ensures your privacy.  A third bathroom on this level features both a shower and a separate toilet.  

Here you'll also find a surprisingly large kitchenette with heaps of bench space, multiple drawers for storage and one of the largest walk-in pantries we've ever seen.  This level has its own patio, also with breathtaking views across the campus of the University and Townsville City.  Having a second internal laundry downstairs means you don't have to share with anyone else.

Perhaps the standout feature of this property is the amazing back-yard deck and Fisher deluxe swim-spa with three swim jets.  You don't need an olympic sized pool to get your exercise and of course, this low-maintenance device is also easy to keep at a comfortable temperature year-round.  Unlike most spas, this one is fully compliant with pool certificates - so even if you do decide to Air BnB the downstairs, this is a feature and not a hassle.  Please see our video to check out how to enjoy this part of the house to its fullest.  

Rounding out this one-of-a-kind property are 6kW of solar panels on the roof, which will help keep those energy bills low.  The landscaping has just been updated and looks like a lush golf-course.  You'll find a garden shed in the backyard for storing your mower and space adjacent to the driveway for storing a trailer.  

Investors!  We estimate that the rooms in this house would rent out for between $200 and $250 a week, each.  While we don't manage properties on an individual basis like this - there is potential for massive returns of up to $2,000 a week.  Please speak to a licensed Real Estate Agency with a Property Management Department in regard to renting out this home.

The location is simply magic.  From this elevated home, you can see the sunset over the pinnacles to the West and Cleveland Bay to the North.  Douglas is home to James Cook University, and the Townsville Hospital - two of Townsville's largest employers.  The Laverack Barracks are less than 10 minutes down the road.  From this home, the Townsville CBD is about a 20-minute drive away.  

Be quick!  There's literally nothing else like 10 Windarra Avenue, Douglas.  Be sure and inspect this weekend.
