Views from the Cairns Inlet across to Walshs Pyramid
Sitting on one of the city’s highest residential blocks and with views from the Cairns Inlet across to Walshs Pyramid, sits “The White House”.
Elevated 170m above sea level, this five-bedroom executive home is architecturally designed and offers low maintenance living at the very top of City View Estate.
Elite Real Estate Services selling agent Daniel Roser said the home’s design made the most of the views.
“For me it is all about the position and the views,” Mr Roser said.
“It’s like living the among the trees … The minute you walk in the house you notice the views.”
Large rectangular skylights have been incorporated into the high cathedral ceilings, and along with extensive use of large windows, the home has plenty of natural light, which complements the expansive open plan.
The front entry opens into the large living area, which includes the impressive kitchen and family room, and connects seamlessly to the poolside entertaining terrace.
This covered area has been designed to once again to make the most of the magnificent views and also incorporates the pool.
The ground also includes three bedrooms, including a kingsize room with ensuite that is perfect for guests or family.
In addition to this, there is a separate office (or another bedroom), a large media room and a home gym.
The kitchen has lots of storage, along with gas cooktop and an large island bench for serving.
The upper level is the ultimate parents’ retreat.
The expansive master suite is highlighted by large windows and includes an ensuite, walk-in robe and private deck backing onto the rainforest reserve.
The property also offers enormous loft storage on the second level and a wine cellar under the staircase.
A large parking bay allows for parking beside the two-vehicle garage ideal; the ideal spot for to store a boat.
Sitting on a 1611 sqm allotment, the home is well suited for executive families looking for space to spread out.
Built in 1994, Mr Roser said the design, combined with the quality finishes, meant the home remains in fashion as much today as when it was built.
“Architecturally designed, there are no other houses that look the same,” he said.
The home’s location also adds to its appeal.
Elite Real Estate Services director of sales Karl Latham said City View Estate is considered a premium neighbourhood favoured by professionals and business owners, who love the convenience of being less than 10 minutes’ drive away from the city and airport.
“It’s convenient to the city and surrounding areas, it’s in a wonderful location with plenty of facilities including sports clubs, and it’s still reasonably priced,” he added.
