Offers over $300,000
10 Clohesy Street, KOAH, Far North Queensland, 4881, QLD, Australia
Wow! Colour abounds in this beautifully restored cane cutters cottage, located in Koah only 40 minutes from the heart of Cairns. The owner moved an old cane cutters cottage from the middle of Gordonvale to Koah over 25 years ago. Since then, he has lovingly crafted every single piece of timber, tin and tile that makes this the artistic retreat it has now become!
The house is somewhere around 120 years old and retains the beautiful 6" wide, professionally polished pine flooring and silky oak single skin walls. Silky Oak is a feature of both upstairs and downstairs kitchens also. The owner has repurposed the old silky oak plantation shutters into wonderful cabinetry to provide solid doors to all kitchen cupboards and exposed timber.
Mosaic tiling provides a wondrous display of vibrancy in the kitchens and bathrooms. The artist within all of us, whether blossoming or hidden, will revel in the serenity, peacefulness and ambience of this property.
Whether you're an artist, an author, a dreamer or a serious money maker, you need to see this property in the flesh to appreciate it. Why a serious money maker I hear you ask! Because the ground floor of the house is a mirror image of the first floor and is totally self-contained. Rent it out to pay the mortgage or make some extra income while living comfortably upstairs!
From a practical point of view, this property has an approx. 50 metre deep bore filling an approx.. 9000 litre tank. An "on-demand" pressure pump then supplies all household outlets with clean water. A large electric hot water system is more than sufficient for a full household. The downstairs bathroom includes a spa bath.
Under cover, steel frame and well-constructed carport area gives shelter to your vehicles, boasts a designated, spacious storage room and the almost quarter acre block provides plenty of area for children to play or family pets to roam. You are on bitumen all the way from the highway except for the actual street entrance of some 30 metres, which is all weather gravel.
An agent with fresh eyes and a sincere appreciation for federation and colonial cottages is eagerly waiting to show you this lovely old lady!
