About This Property:
It's the dream, its what everyone's been asking us for. Space, Privacy and so close to all the best Townsville has to offer. Excellence Property is proud to present one of Townsville's best homes - 42 Serissa Crescent, Annandale. Wait till you see what's inside. For almost half a century Annandale has been one of Townsville's most desirable suburbs, because of its close proximity to the river, the size of the blocks and the neat character of the houses. The owners of 42 Serissa Crescent have raised their children here over the last twelve years, and now it's time for these empty nesters to pass this beautiful home on to the next generation.
If you are looking for a home that really feels like a home…a place to make memories that last a lifetime, and the opportunity to give your children the experience growing up that you have always wanted for them, this is the place.
What really stands out about this home is the overall size. The block is so big that you really wouldn't notice too much if your relatives drove their 15-metre motorhome into your backyard and stayed for a couple of weeks. The block is 1400m2 and includes tropical garden with mature trees, an amazing pool with easy access ramp entry, a large, powered shed, and plenty of places to play hide and seek.
Something I loved straight away about this property was that I discovered the master bedroom is completely separate from the other three bedrooms in its own wing downstairs. It has been tastefully updated with charming vinyl plank floors, hand made boho lamps and split system air-conditioning. There is heaps of room for both yours and your partners wardrobe in the large walk in robe, and the ensuite is spacious with many modern upgrades.
Also, downstairs you will find two separate lounge rooms, each with their own charming character and extensive views of the masterfully manicured gardens. Original features like exposed beams and brickwork lend to the enchanting nature of these spaces. There is a separate office and a family sized laundry as well as a formal dining space next to the kitchen.
The kitchen has been upgraded with modern tapware, bespoke cabinetry accents and new appliances like the 5 burner Fisher and Paykel gas stove. There is heaps of pantry space in both the convenient cabinets and the walk in pantry space under the stairs. You'll find a space at the bench where friends can sip wine while you cook, or kids can grab a quick bowl of cereal in the morning before school. If you are cooking up a storm in this kitchen, you'll be glad its so convenient to the outdoor entertaining spaces.
I can picture forty friends enjoying the ultimate Townsville backyard and celebrating their children's birthdays here. The expansive patio is positioned so that its in the shade all day, and if that's not enough space to recreate, there are wonderful places to relax an enjoy the ambience next to the sparkling saltwater pool. Of course, if you're old fashioned, you might enjoy having a glas of wine with your neighbours in the evening on your front verandah. The porch swing you see in the photoset is included with the sale of the house.
Upstairs are three large bedrooms including one that was originally the master. They all have built in wardrobes and brand new plush grey carpet. During the cooler months, full length sliding glass open to let in the breeze, and there is air conditioning for the hottest days of Townsville's summer. The upstairs family bathroom has both a tub and a shower, and you will find tasteful modern updates here as well. All three bedrooms upstairs have access to either a private balcony or the large front verandah which runs the length of the house.
As long as we are continuing up, situated on the roof is a full 5kilowatt solar panel system. Everyone with a large family will appreciate how important it is to keep those energy bills down. The roof is tile, and we have completed a building inspection which you are welcome to read either by emailing us or coming to visit. The inspector found it to be in good condition.
Let's go outside now and have a chat about the grounds. In the front yard you'll find walking paths through the trees, a wooden bridge, and a wonderful, secluded place to read your book. There is parking in the shade for 2 cars at the end of the long driveway, and odds are because of the size and privacy of this block, they won't be seen from the street. Did I mention the fishpond? Its beautiful, and you can join us at the open home with your cards to feed the fish. The 1400m2 block stretches between two streets, and you can access the backyard via wide double gates. There is an excellent place to park your tinny undercover next to the shed, and an excellent place to park your motorhome inside your yard securely. The shed is large enough for an excellent workshops and features power outlets, lights and fans.
No suburban Townsville backyard would be complete without an awesome pool. This one has all the features…a bubbly spa big enough for four friends, a wonderful pebblecrete beach to play on beneath the waterfall and easy access ramp entry to the shallow end. New pool fences have just been certified and unlike most pool areas, this one is large enough that you can gather with all your friends in the shade close enough to watch the kids.
Annandale is a leafy suburb that is so close to Townsville's largest employers, James Cook University, The Townsville Hospital and the Lavarack Barracks Army Base. Although we are a short five-minute bike ride from the river, this Annandale suffered no ill effects from the flooding that occurred in Townsville in 2019. If you are into fitness, beautiful walking/cycling paths along the Ross River are just down the road. The most desirable children's schools in the area, Annandale State School, Annandale Christian College, and Townsville Grammar School are an easy bike ride away. The Townsville CBD and the strand Beach are only a fifteen-minute drive away.
