About This Property:
With a resort-style patio, amazing pool with remote controlled integrated spa and 90 metre concrete driveway leading to a large shed… this house has everything people want in an acreage property. 17 Blackview Avenue features a unique, grand and brilliantly open-plan design by Lamont Homes. Those with large families will love the 3 massive open-plan living areas, generously oversized bedrooms, and high-end finishes. An exquisite rainforest garden complete with barley hut rounds out this unbelievable, one-of-a-kind property!
Perhaps we at Cutting Edge Property went a little bit overboard with the photos… but this home and garden were so stunning that we really felt we needed more than 40 images and a 9 minute video to really showcase how beautiful this home is. It will not disappoint in person either. The current caretakers of this property are going on an unexpected journey around Australia and the home that they planned to inhabit for the rest of their lives will now pass to a very lucky new owner. Visiting will certainly convey the impression that this is a "forever property".
Breaking down a property of this size is challenging so lets start with the inside. The main living area and kitchen consists of a large, open-plan room with stacking french doors that make up most of the northern and southern walls. This room has retractable screens but can be opened completely to the elements creating an amazing, tropical, resort-like atmosphere. The space from the internal courtyard to the solid timber accented patio adjacent to the pool is so beautiful that you could hold a wedding reception here.
The kitchen has 2 enormous stone benchtops and at least room for 5 people at the breakfast bar. You will also find all the necessary accompaniments you would expect in a home of this calibre. . . Soft closed drawers, a plumbed fridge space, a 5-burner stove . . . and forget about a servery window because the kitchen sliding doors stack to open completely to the pool patio.
If it's too hot to entertain outside. . . the enormous theatre room is sure to be a family favourite. This is the only room in the house that is carpeted for a cosy, luxurious feel. Large families will appreciate the tiled rumpus/ gaming room which has plenty of space for pinball machines and a pool table. You don't have to have your man cave in the shed here. Those needing a fifth "bedroom" will find that this space can be easily converted to a second master. There is a powder room just outside and the plantation shutters and louvres in the walls give this room plenty of privacy.
The 3 childrens bedrooms all have matching tiled floors original to the rest of the house. They feature large built-in wardrobes and split system air conditioners. The family bathroom that services these bedrooms is tiled high for easy maintenance and includes a separate shower and a large soaker tub so that everyone living in the house can be spoiled.
The primary suite is better than you might experience at a 5-star resort. Louvres between the impeccable ensuite and the bedroom give you the option of privacy or a more open and spacious feeling. The ensuite is tiled to the ceiling for ease of maintenance and features a double vanity, a spa tub and a large luxurious shower. Identical stacking doors to the main living areas really open up this parents' retreat to the outdoors and a private gate into the pool area beckons skinny dippers. The master bedroom also has cathedral ceilings, premium curtains, a tiled floor, huge walk-in wardrobe and split system air conditioning.
Let's go outside! Even though there are neighbours nearby, this block feels so private due to an almost 90 metre long garden on the eatstern side of the house featuring Australian natives. This privacy enhancement is filled with trees and shrubs that attract our local wildlife and ensure that evenings on the patio are resplendent with birdsong. Just like the front and back lawns, this garden is fully irrigated and extremely low maintenance.
There is a 90 metre concrete driveway which leads from the front gate to the 3-bay shed and workshop. There are 2 additional undercover carport bays suitable for parking your tinny and camper trailer. Inside the shed you will find lighting, plenty of power outlets, fans and the extensive collection of modern, efficient, technical equipment used to maintain the pool and spa. Being located in the shed keeps this valuable asset in good condition and out of the sun.
Speaking of the pool and spa… the beautiful, matched tiles continue through the house and around the sparkling saltwater pool. Yes, there is a remote control so you can turn on features like the spa and the waterfall without having to walk to the shed. Please see Abigail introduce these beautiful features in our video.
Clearly, the current owners have a green thumb but they have made it so easy to maintain this incredible property. There is a large, irrigated shadehouse with raised garden beds in which you can foster seedlings for the garden or grow bountiful organic vegetables and herbs for the kitchen table. There is an irrigated orchard of producing trees and plants so you will never need to purchase most tropical fruits from your local Coles. The orchard includes but is not limited to; macadamia, mango in multiple varieties, lychee, lemon, lime, dragon fruit and many others.
Perhaps we've saved the best part for last. If you've always wanted to wake up and have your own private space to enjoy a cup of coffee or conduct a yoga practice in the morning. . . you will love the barley hut in the hand-planted rainforest. It is no exaggeration to say that the back part of this acre rivals the beauty of many botanical gardens that we have visited. Over the last ten years, the improvements these owners have made to this property are kind of hard to explain in text. They never intended to leave. . . and that's why they claim they have collected and cultivated thousands of unique tropical plants that are now living in perfect harmony at the back of this block. Show up to the open home early so that you and your family have time to really explore and experience this garden.
To round out and clarify the details, the 4,716 sqm block has large irrigated sections of lawn, and most of the gardens are automatically irrigated. There is a large solar power system on the roof to help keep those energy bills down. There are automatic doors on the shed, making parking during inclement weather easy and the entire block is fully fenced.
Black River is one of the closest suburbs to Townsville featuring acreage blocks. It is about a 15 minutes drive from the beautiful beaches at Bushland Beach and Saunders Beach. Family shopping can be conducted easily at the nearby North Shore Shops and you will find everything there from a Bunnings to a Woolworths. The Townsville CBD is about 30 minutes drive away.
From the amazing design of the interior spaces, to the care taken to plant each Australian native tree in the rainforest, there's simply nothing else like this property. Be quick! There's only 1. Private inspections and airport pickups are available. Contact my team to see it first.
