What you will love about this home

Living in North Queensland is most comfortable in a "Queenslander". Our home is almost 100 years old and is built in a suburb where old such heritage listed properties abound. They are designed to take in the breezes and provide a great standard of living whilst embracing the local culture.

We are fortunate enough to live across the road from two open parks. One of which is one of the three stunning Botanical Gardens in Townsville. It's called "Anderson Park" in and has many of massive "Rain Trees" and other abundant flora & fauna providing a shady cool environment, which makes it a pleasure to live here.

This home is designed for enjoying the tropics. It is a double-storey home where the bedrooms are all upstairs and the entire home is fitted out with period style louvres and casement windows so you can get the most from the breezes.

PLEASE NOTE: Our home has external staircases and is not suitable for children under two years old.

The veranda is fitted out to enjoy outdoor BBQ's and al-fresco dining and looks over to the covered pool area where you can relax and cool down.

What you will love in the neighborhood

We do get lovely butterflies using our back yard as a highway. Also in the main park it is abundant; especially at dawn & dusk.

It's a 5 minute walk to the local supermarket. A similar 5 minute drive to the closest shopping centres. The beach is also only 10 minutes away (by car).

Direct flights daily from Cairns, Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne. Oh yes; Magnetic Island is a 20 minute ferry ride away. Time has seemingly forgotten about "Maggie". It's beautiful and is almost entirely national park.

We are a family of four although five or six could stay here using an inflatable bed. The main bedroom has a purpose built Rosewood king size bed. The middle of house comprises the lounge& dining rooms room. They get the lovely breezes. Generally we dine on the veranda. The weather is perfect for this type of lifestyle.

There are two kids rooms, an upstairs bathroom & the kitchen. Downstairs has tons of space too. It has a second lounge/entertainment area as well as a second bathroom and more.

We have abundant bird life utilising our old-age trees, including our own plants to allure the beautiful Cairns Birdwing & Ulysses Butterflies.

Additional information

Mysterton is one of Townsville's loveliest areas. It's almost a heritage listed suburb as it packed with age-old Queenslander styled homes (ours inclusive).

It's a 10 minute drive into town (and the beach/strand). Shopping Centre is only 10 minutes drive away. Supermarket & pub only a 5 minute walk. Restaurants all 5 minutes away (also by foot).

We are a family of four and our house is built with this mind. The main room veranda is massive. We pretty much well live upstairs on our huge veranda. It is generally our dining room as well.. The weather is perfect for this type of lifestyle.
