Lifestyle Duplex - Two, Two Bedroom Units + Flexi Use Shed

DWELLINGS:
Private from the street; this property comprises two separate residences, presenting various options for buyers needing to house an elderly family member, mature children or simply rent one of the units for extra income. It's quite an interesting property, and certainly not your typical duplex; perfect for someone who only needs the space of a unit but wants the outlook & exterior benefits of a leafy home on the escarpment. Essentially, you could live in the rear home (main residence) and rent out the second residence. The property configuration is also suited to home share or dual living, for perhaps an aged parent or if you have mature children who crave a little more space. Both homes have two good sized bedrooms, with the main residence having a walk-through office or sitting room. A 6m x 6m, fully lined shed with kitchenette is a bonus space for creative endeavours or a home office.

GARDEN:
Set on 3,011m2 (over 3/4 acre) of expansive mature gardens, where tall trees create a picturesque & inviting backdrop; it feels private, parklike & peaceful for those who love to enjoy the great outdoors. A lengthy driveway with retaining wall & garden along the southern boundary connects the residences to their respective car accommodation (a carport with roller door to the second residence and detached remote garage off the main residence). Ample space exists for both occupants to enjoy their own zones and not feel as if they are encroaching upon one another. To the rear of the main home, and within eyeshot from its kitchen & living, there's a fenced plunge pool & entertaining terrace with wood fire offering spectacular valley views to the north-east. A pathway leads down to the fully lined shed with its own deck & bathroom, tapering off to the lower sloping section of the block.

LOCATION:
Situated within a quiet cul-de-sac, the property is far away enough that you feel removed from the confines of residential living, yet is only minutes to southside Toowoomba amenities. It's a seven minute drive to convenience shopping at Kmart Toowoomba Plaza, Aldi & The Ridge Shoppingworld + numerous major retailers at the Harvey Norman Centre. Located within the catchment zone for Middle Ridge State School and Centenary Heights State School, it's also just a six minute commute to the University of Southern Queensland as well as a number of parklands and sporting grounds. Wine lovers will also appreciate its close proximity to the Preston Peak Winery & Function Centre.
