Own a Slice of History with Dual Income

8 Blake Street, Collinsville Q
  • $299,500


What a unique opportunity to purchase a part of Collinsville’s history AND take advantage of a dual income. Situated on a massive 1834 m2 block consisting of 2 well maintained residences – one a charming Qldr home, the other a well presented 1 bedroom dwelling that is fresh and modern. This property really does exude a peaceful ambience yet still enjoys a convenient location within easy walking distance of schools, shops, hotel, library, workers club and town pool.  

This location was previously the site of the Collinsville Ambulance Service that was established in 1923 and the prominent sign at the entry displays an insight into its operation. You can’t help but appreciate the historical roots with the old corrugated iron shed still remaining evoking a hint of nostalgia. It is even still functional and lockable. A canopy of trees extends its branches over the cobblestone pathway leading you to the classic Qldr home with all the characteristics that make these homes so beloved.  Welcoming and comfortable, it features a full length front verandah, functional, spacious kitchen and dining space, high ceilings, timeless tongue and groove walls, French doors and stunning polished floorboards. Spacious separate lounge plus office/ironing room and 2 bedrooms both with French door access to the front verandah, one with neat ensuite featuring timber vanity and separate shower. Cool breezes flow through the home but it is fully air conditioned for when its needed. The rear covered verandah overlooks the sprawling yard and is the perfect spot for alfresco dining. SO much room to build a shed AND pool and still have room for the kids and pets to roam or just to enjoy a firepit on a cool evening. Under the home is a separate laundry plus second shower and toilet and ample parking space if required.

The 2nd residence is a one bedroom self contained unit (with new split system a/c) that has been renovated stylishly from top to toe. Together the 2 properties are returning $500 per week to a business that keeps the property clean weekly and monitors all of its personnel who reside there ensuring peace of mind for the landlord.  (Landlord is responsible for gardens and mowing) Both properties have had a replacement colorbond roof still covered by warranty and are fully insulated. There is also dual vehicle access.  

These properties boast a proven rental track record and their location close to amenities surely is significant having been leased consistently since the owner purchased over 15 years ago. If you’re an investor, these properties have been maintained well by the owners and are ideal to earn an income straight away. But if you want to maybe live in one and rent out the other, that’s an option also. Located in a friendly rural community with a peaceful country lifestyle you can say goodbye to the city but still be only 85km away from Bowen and its stunning beaches and picturesque bays.  Well priced, these properties are ready for a new owner and definitely worth a look – call us for more info or to inspect.
