5 Lawrie Ave, Oonoonba
A NEAR new home with all the charm of a traditional house on the city fringe will be sold under the hammer. The home, at 5 Lawrie Ave, Oonoonba, will go to auction on site at 10.30am on December 1.
The three-bedroom, two bathroom house with double garage was built by Tribute Homes and is located in The Village.
Selling agent Keyes & Co principal Damien Keyes said nothing had been forgotten when designing and building the house.
“Everywhere you look they have used premium finishes and fixtures like the porcelain sink in the kitchen with the multipurpose mixer tap that extends on a hose,” he said. “There is a lot of attention to detail in this house.
“The other thing about this house is focus on insulation which is in the perimeter walls and not just the ceiling. It makes the house super cool and also makes it very energy efficient.
“It would definitely suit someone who wants a new home but doesn’t want to have to wait for it to be built.”
The house has three, airconditioned bedrooms while the master bedroom takes up the entire first floor.
The kitchen has stone bench tops and a walk-in pantry that is concealed under the staircase.
The outdoor area overlooks parklands and there is laneway access with room for a boat or camper trailer.
Mr Keyes said The Village estate where the house was located was popular with buyers due to its proximity to the city.
“We have had plenty of people through this home and we’ve had a lot of people who are currently renting in the area,” he said.
“It’s just so close to the CBD so as well as suiting a small family it could also suit a professional couple.”
Owner Adam Norton said they had decided to sell the home as they had plans to build another house on a much grander scale.
“The house was built by Tribute Homes and we took one of their designs and added some extra components to it,” he said.
“We’re not a big fan of the giant rendered chilli bin. We like a more traditional style home.
“My favourite part of the house is the outdoor area while my wife really likes the upstairs because it’s quite luxurious with a big wardrobe to fit her shoe collection.
“It is also in a phenomenal location and you can get to the city in five minutes.”
