Renovator at 5 Crowley Cl, Whitfield full of 1960s charm
BUILT in 1960 on a large block, this low-set timber home in one of Cairns’ premier suburbs is perfect for someone with a bit of imagination.
RE/MAX Cairns agent Cathy Ratcliffe is selling 5 Crowley Close at Whitfield and said the property had “all the charms of yesteryear”.
At the top of the close and backing on to a seasonal creek, the three-bedroom, one-bathroom family home is on the market for about $500,000.
“There is plenty of yard space and shade for the kids and the home has polished timber floors, and a spacious timber kitchen with loads of benchspace,” Ms Ratcliffe said.
“The rear deck flows out from the lounge and provides shade and privacy – the perfect location to entertain family and friends or laze away the afternoon.
“It is a great buy for any young family or first-home buyers or empty nesters and builders or renovators who may be looking for a property.
“With a little imagination, this family home of the 1960s could transform into a diamond of the 21st century.”
There is also a utility room with plenty of storage and a double lockup garage with internal access.
The home is open for inspection today at noon.
