STUNNING 2 ACRE COUNTRY RETREAT ONLY 20 MINUTES FROM CAIRNS’ CBD
FIRST TIME EVER OFFERED TO THE MARKET!
Surrounded by sugarcane just North of Gordonvale, Avalon Park; a magnificent country estate, contains a beautiful post-modernist home of stunning architectural design. Accessed from the main road down a wide, winding, tree lined circular driveway you’re led to the drive-through carport and main entry to this wonderful residence.
The family home dates from the late ‘70s and was designed by renowned local architect Bruce Clarke. Featuring Clohesy River bricks, Western Rd Cedar exterior wall cladding, Silky Oak joinery and solid Maple internal stairwell. The internal timber features are also quite remarkable with 2” Silver Ash T&G flooring and 6” solid Blonde Maple ceiling lining. These timbers are almost irreplaceable and even the front verandah was made from local Hickory.
The home design was cutting edge at the time and still includes a dumb waiter servicing the wet bar downstairs from the kitchen, industrial grade powder coated aluminium windows and doors and wide verandahs that encourage wonderful cross flow ventilation. A modern CCW kitchen is a recent addition with beautiful parquet flooring and the bathrooms are classically original.
The property is enhanced with many mature citrus varieties, solar hot water, new septic system, operable bore with pump, and irrigation system to the established garden beds. A modern pool with water curtain feature and a large detached Besser block shed with two bedrooms (studios) add amenity.
