7 Alice Street, Russell Queensland 4184 View on map

Type: House

This brick home at 7 Alice Street is as solid as a rock. Consisting of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, proud street appeal and room for four cars or a boat and caravan, this property will tick all your boxes.

It has a well-maintained, established tropical garden mulched to keep the weeds at bay. In pride of place in the front garden is an enormous Beaucarnea recurvata (for the botanists), but everyone else knows it as the “Ponytail Palm.”

Having such a prime location, the jetty is within walking distance, as is the Library, school, swimming pool, etc. Jock Kennedy Park is a short walk from your front door. Have a picnic in the park or sit and enjoy the serenity of Island life. Take a stroll and wet your feet.

When you enter the rumpus room downstairs from either the garage or the security door at the front of the home, you will be pleasantly surprised. It is tiled and has TV access. The double brick construction makes this your perfect theatre room, offering a sound barrier for the neighbour’s benefit.

There is an opportunity for dual accommodation at the same address, giving the teenagers independence or convenience for aging grandparents who come to visit for a month and want to stay for a year. On this level, there is one bedroom and a separate bathroom with a shower, vanity, and toilet.

The garage has abundant shelving for all your tools, and there is vacant space under the stairs for yet more storage. The spacious laundry is accessible from the internal garage.

At present, there is an enclosed cattery attached to the back of the house. However, with the convenience of secure screening, this can easily be converted into a morning tea room.

If your shopping is too heavy to carry home, take the car for a quick trip to IGA. Imagine yourself coming home on a rainy day or in the dark and using the remote control to drive straight inside for safety. The carpeted staircase leads you to the top floor, where you enter directly into the lounge room. Walk through the glass sliding doors to the wrap-around verandah and take in the incredible view of the ferries on their way to the mainland.

In addition to the under-house garage, there are also two lock-up car garages and a carport at the rear—room for your boat or caravan. Think how convenient it is to live so close to the boat ramp. Moments after loading the boat on the trailer, you can pass your catch to the cook as you dive in and have a shrimp on the barbie by the time you walk through the door.

The ceramic tiles feel cool underfoot in the kitchen, which has a large walk-in pantry and bench space to spare. The generous cupboards will hold all your essentials, with room for a fridge and freezer. This kitchen boasts a small roller door that hides everyday appliances out of sight, as well as the double sink, dishwasher, wall oven, and range hood with a cooktop for the chef. A servery window from the kitchen to the verandah will save you a lot of time when entertaining.

The 8kw air conditioner is ample to keep the top floor cool on sweltering days and nights. Fans throughout the bedrooms have a remote grid control. You can control them with your phone if the kids leave them on unnecessarily or you forget to turn them off before you leave home. Two sliding glass doors in the lounge area allow the breeze to flow through the top floor. The home also has a 6.1kw solar power system.

The main bedroom’s ensuite upstairs has a deep bath, separate shower recess, toilet, his and her sinks with drawers underneath for personal items, and a towel cupboard. There is also a linen press in the hall. The small bedroom off the lounge room could be used as an office or a study and has a convenient drop-shoot-to-downstairs laundry. The whole property is thoroughly screened. There is also TV access in most rooms.

Other features include:

  • The construction downstairs is double brick.
  • Bedrooms have built-in mirrored robes.
  • Two separate living areas.
  • Partially enclosed bottom deck.
  • Spacious backyard.
  • Room for a vegetable garden.
  • The external stairs to the backyard are accessible through a security screen door from the top balcony.
  • Two external power points are on the east and south walls on the top verandah.
  • Two concrete strips run from the kerb to the lock-up rear garage.
  • The home also has a 6.1kw solar power system.

Imagine the “seafood and eat it” parties you will host being so close to the water.

This place has it all. Open the door, call out, “Honey, I’m home,” and step into paradise.
