Have you ever dreamt of spending days walking along The Strand or Exploring Jezzine Barracks? Next stopping at one of the arrays of restaurants and cafes along the way for lunch and why not a sneaky ice cream or waffle before returning home to your leafy abode. North Ward is one of Townsville most sought after locations and for good reason. Only minutes from your front door is a sprawling suburb of lifestyle options such as Queens Gardens, The Water Park for the kids and the newly rebuilt Tobruk Pool and Leisure Center just to name a few. For the daily needs the Coles North Ward Shopping Centre offers a butcher, chemist, cellars, news agency and bakery. Some of Townsville's best school options are also nearby with St Joseph's Primary, Grammar High School, Townsville Central School and St Patricks College.
As you approach 72 Eyre Street you can feel the warmth and love this beautiful home has received over the last 21 years. Through the front door is a large family room which is currently a second lounge and formal dining space. The fifth bedroom, home office or guest room is also on the ground floor serviced by a brand-new stunning bathroom and combined laundry. The family room also connects to the front porch overlooking the lush gardens.
As you head upstairs the first thing you see is the gleaming polished floors which flow through this level. The second living area, informal meals and breezeway create a cosy open space and the lounge room seamlessly connects to the full-length front patio. This is one of my favourite places in the home and will be a delightful spot to have the morning coffee and watch the sunrise. The kitchen is functional and features a breakfast bar, large pantry and ample storage. The breezeway opens with solid timber bi-fold doors to a huge alfresco dining and lounge area, the exposed timbers, framed outlook of Castle Hill and sparkling swimming pool below are to die for.
Also, on the upper level is the further four bedrooms. The master and second bedroom are large, and both has beautiful views through big louver sets and have direct access to the cosy patio. Two further bedrooms to the rear of the home, the fourth being a perfect guest room with access directly to the rear alfresco dinning area. The main bathroom has proved the test of time looks as good as new bringing just enough history of this home while cleverly matching the decor.
Heading downstairs and out the back is another large covered entertaining area as well as the huge sparkling swimming pool with beautiful timber decking, a pool cover and featuring LED lights to really shine at night.
With over 364 square meters of home under-roof, 6 different areas for the family to spread out and all sitting on a lush 1,012 square meter block of land in the heart of North Ward.
