Charming Queenslander with a ’mini-me’ treehouse up for grabs
THIS charming Queenslander wouldn’t look out of place on the set of Alice in Wonderland, with its off-white complexion, original features and tropical garden creating a fantasy-style ambience.
The property in Townsville’s inner city suburb of West End is up for auction on the first Saturday of August and there’s no doubt the kids will be convinced.
Setting a new precedent for cubby houses, the property boasts a two-storey treehouse surrounded by mature gardens and lush lawn.

REMAX agent, Michele Hyde, who is marketing the property said the house has already attracted a string of buyer attention with the treehouse being a main attraction.
“At the first open house we had about 20 people through it and got one offer,” Ms Hyde said
“When the current owners were looking at it they couldn’t get their children out of the treehouse, and that’s certainly what were finding with other families at the open homes.
“It (the treehouse) has been beautifully constructed, it’s very much the same style of the home.”
The main house also has plenty of character, featuring a retro-style orange and white kitchen splashback and large glass doors boasting an outlook to the tropical back yard.
Keeping with tradition it also has charming Queenslander features like casement windows, high ceilings and tongue and Groove walls.
Ms Hyde said the house has been well-kept and cherished by the current owners.
“The house has been beautifully maintained and the owner is an architect so he’s actually extended part of the house,” she said.
“There’s not much else like it so it’s hard to put a price on it.
“People always respond well to a well maintained Queenslander.”
