Ahead of its time!!! - Stunning Panoramic Views
If you are looking for the “ultimate LARGE family home” 8 Norris Road, is your answer.
A four-bedroom home with panoramic views over North Mackay to the Coral Sea as far south as Hay Point and the city skyline, I challenge you to find something as unique!
From the front Circular Driveway, this hilltop residence, in the most commanding of positions, offers expanses of living and entertaining areas spread over three levels.
Built by Master Builder “John Ryan” for his own family in the early 1960’s and on the market for the very first time, you can be confident in the high quality construction and maintenance of this home.
Upon entering the front door, you will immediately appreciate the size and uniqueness of this home that was designed with innovative additions, evident in most rooms. The entry into the very spacious lounge room completes with a built-in bar and Queensland Maple wall panelling, overlooking an inground pool, views to the Coral Sea also capturing any prevailing breezes. It is just the start of what is on offer in this home.
Adjacent to the lounge is the dining area, allowing for a comfortable 8-seater table. The kitchen features Tasmanian Oak cupboards plus electric cooktop and oven is located across from the dining area.
Three of the bedrooms have been positioned on this main level along with the main bathroom, complete with single shower, bathtub, and separate toilet. Bedroom 2 is generous in size with a wall of built in robes with 2.7m high ceilings that add to the sense of space. Finished with air conditioning, ceiling fan and carpet flooring. All you must do is move your children’s furniture in. Bedroom 3 also includes built in robes, 2.7m high ceilings plus ceiling fan and carpet flooring. The 4th bedroom has built-in cupboards and tiled floors and could easily be utilised as a home office.
This floor also includes an open informal air-conditioned lounge which is ideal for a TV / entertainment space or converted into a “children’s retreat” as this section of the home can be closed off from the kitchen/lounge/dining area.
A set of Silky Oak internal stairs leads up to the extra-large parent’s retreat designed with 6 sets of windows to capture the panoramic views plus sliding glass doors to a small balcony. A walk-in robe and ensuite complete this space.
Internal stairs of Queensland Maple lead down from the lounge/dining to a rumpus/entertainment room, currently furnished with billiard table and built-in bar ready for entertaining. Located downstairs is a large laundry, toilet, lock up garage with bi-fold doors plus lockable tool room. A unique feature of two individual change/dressing rooms for the pool are also located at this level with easy access to the pool area.
The 10m pool is the focus of the secured back yard along with terraced lawn and sandstone paved outdoor barbeque area. The front yard features established gardens with easy access off Norris Road via a circular driveway with carport.
Just a short drive to Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre and local primary and high schools, this home also offers you a relaxed lifestyle with spectacular views during the day and evening. The difficult decision has now been made by the owners to move on, so now is your opportunity to make this house your home!
If you are a family that continues to be just a touch short of space, I would invite you to explore this home.
