12 Queen Street, Cooran
Genuine Queenslander on double blockThis very special home was purchased 55 years ago when Cooran was a busy rail town with 3 pubs and dairy farms for as far as the eye could see. Now Cooran has been transformed to a lovely residential / semi-rural suburb where people take advantage of the handy proximity to the coast and families enjoy a quiet country town community.
This home has been maintained meticulously for over half a century with important upgrades such as concrete stumps, re-roofing and re-wiring. With the large home sitting on 2 lots of land totalling 2037m2, the entire property gives the astute buyer plenty of options. The home is filled with heritage features such as 11ft ceilings, fretwork vents, VJ walls and a wide front verandah. Over the years the side verandahs were built in, as often was the case, and two long sleep-outs run along the Eastern and Western sides. These make great bedrooms or sun rooms to catch the light morning and evening. The home has three other bedrooms with silky- oak french doors and ornate art deco light shades.
The floor covering is currently in Axminster carpet in lounge and bedrooms, which covers lovely original floorboards, should the new owner wish to have polished floors.
The land is near level and easy to maintain with established gardens and views across to the tablelands. This location is so handy and only a short 700m walk to the post office and general store. Cooran also offers some small mixed businesses and a great primary school. Secondary students can catch a bus near sports club, approx. 300m from this home. This property may well suit buyers looking for a 2nd dwelling or granny flat which could work well on the 2nd lot. (STCA)
Under the home is equally immaculate with a lock up workshop, a laundry which includes a 2nd shower, and plenty of concreted surfaces to make use of. Inspection is by appointment only.
