10 Jenkinson Drive Annandale QLD 4814


SOLD DATE: 7 June 2016


Not often does an opportunity come by to reside in Annandale, at an affordable price offering all the bells and whistles… Fully air-conditioned, five bedrooms main features a walk-in robe/ensuite, sliding door access to the outdoors.  Roomy kitchen highlighting brand new oven and hotplates.  Two separate living rooms with the main enjoying uninterrupted Mount Stuart views.  Plenty of side access and yard for children and pets to play and still room for a pool and shed!  Walking distance to Annandale Central and Grammar School.  You will love what this home offers for the price.


1. What influenced you to buy the property?

We needed a good location close to where we work (at the hospital and JCU) and Coles.  The fully fenced, flat yard was perfect for our dog.  We specifically wanted to avoid a pool for ease of maintenance, as we are quite busy.  And we wanted somewhere with decent land value.

2. What advantages are there in living in your home?

There’s plenty of room – We used one as an office, and rented one to a friend, and still had plenty for storage and guests.  The neighbours are all friendly.

3. When family or friends visit, what do they point out as the benefits of your home?

My parents and my brother’s families have visited, and they love the view of Mt Stuart from the couch in the living room.  As much as we love our baby niece, it was nice to not hear any crying at night (she slept in the bedroom at the opposite end of the house from the main bedroom).

4. What are the best 5 things about your home?

Convenient location: Close to the Hospital, JCU, Coles, the Army base, and Townsville Grammar School.  Also not far from a very nice dog park and sports grounds.
It’s a quiet, safe neighbourhood, and the neighbours look out for each other.
Underground power – no power outages during storms!
We tinted all the doors and windows with 85% glare reduction and 99.9% UV reduction, mainly to protect our skin, but also it helped to protect furniture/carpet from UV damage, and saved us a significant amount on air-conditioning costs! (I can show you my power bill)
Recently finished a DHA lease, so when we took over, the house was freshly painted and maintenance all done.

5. Any additional comments?

We enjoyed living here, but got a good job down south, so we are reluctantly moving (very far) away.  All the improvements/upgrades we’ve done to the house were done with love, as this was our first house.  We hope you will love it too.
