Lush Half Acre with Outdoor Living. Quiet Cul-de-sac, Minutes From Beaches
* Viewings by appointment only. Please use contact form or phone code to contact owners & arrange private viewing, or Facetime/ WhatsApp video call.
This very special home sits on just over half an acre (2,428m2), surrounded by wonderful gardens. It is located down the end of a quiet & leafy cul-de-sac, less than 3kms to Yeppoon main beach and town centre.
The suburb is safe and peaceful with friendly neighbours, and the property is within easy walking distance to St Brendan's College, Jac's Kindy & Yeppoon State Primary School. There's convenient road access to northern Yeppoon via Panorama Drive, or Rockhampton via Limestone Creek Road.
The open floor plan with French doors onto covered front and back decks creates a relaxed feel, perfect for year-round entertaining, or barefoot family living. The home has been much loved over the past 12 years and will come with a new roof installed. Add your own stamp to this property, or simply move in and enjoy the breeze and multitude of flitting birds from the deck.
Having French doors on opposite sides of the living area allows cross breezes to flow through, cooling the home in summer and reducing reliance on the split system air-conditioner in the living area. All three bedrooms and indoor living/dining areas have ceiling fans. A wide front patio (9.8m x 3.9m) offers flexibility to alter floor levels and perhaps add a separate home office entry, master ensuite or French doors off the bedrooms (STCA).
Tiled floors run through the home, and the master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and wall-papered feature wall. The renovated tiled bathroom has a shower over bath, recessed mirror cabinet and wall-mounted vanity. The separate toilet, bathroom, and light-filled laundry conveniently open on a small landing with 3 steps down to the lawn and washing line.
The best feature of the kitchen is the large window facing east over the garden, and the adjacent dining area has potential for a servery window to be added alongside the spacious back deck (4.5m x 5.9m).
The majority of the property perimeter is fenced, with the furthest end near the creek left unfenced as a corridor for wildlife to pass through. Wide-spaced treated pine palisades allow breezes through on the street side, and metal fencing has recently been built around the lower backyard. Two side gates allow pets to be kept either in the front, or the back yard.
Off the street, the crushed granite driveway fits two cars, plus a third in the single carport. There is additional side parking within the fence for a medium sized caravan or boat, and side access to the backyard.

Yeppoon, and the Capricorn Coast, is a wonderful area to call home: it's the gateway to the Keppel Islands via Rosslyn Bay or Emu Park boat ramps, a 40 minute drive from Rockhampton Airport and train station, and 30 minutes from Byfield's pristine swimming holes and National Park. There are great surfs spots up Farnborough Beach or at Five Rocks, and plenty of interesting waterways and walks to explore. Yeppoon offers all essential services, has plenty of cafes and eateries, and is an easy drive to Rockhampton for a wider array of services and shops.
