Having moved on from Townsville, Mr Reeves said he misses the outlook that living in the apartment provides. “I miss the feeling of looking out and seeing what’s going on in the world — watching the ships come in and out, and the Wednesday evening yacht racing on The Strand.” “The main focus of the apartment is the view, and it’s proximity to Castle Hill.” “It’s all about privacy and the outlook — it’s quite secluded because Castle Hill surrounds you on two of the three sides.”“The view overlooks Cleveland Bay, Magnetic Island, all the way up to The Palms and right around down to Mount Elliot.” “There’s only two of them (the apartments), so it provides a unique opportunity for a buyer because it’s a one-off, you won’t get those sorts of views combined with the facilities anywhere else.” Owner and builder David Reeves said he and his wife wanted somewhere private and peaceful to call home that was also low-maintenance to look after.“When we bought it, there was an existing residence which we added to, altered and converted into two apartments — It was originally one large house.”“We were looking to downsize and have something that we could just close-up and go away without having any concerns about the property.”RELATED: Where to yield a profitable investment?center_img With four-bedrooms in total, this unit spans over three spacious floors, and highlights magnificent views from each level.“Downstairs on the lower level is two bedrooms, a family room, bathroom and laundry — there’s also patio areas off of it and a small kitchenette downstairs as well.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020 Contemporary classic with views to cherish “On the middle level, there’s a huge living area, dining space, study, kitchen and main entrance — there’s also a big timber decking area off the side.”“The upper level is the master bedroom with an ensuit — It’s sort of like a gallery.”Being in the heart of the city, the home still manages to hold a feeling of rurality, as it sits encapsulated in the serenity of Castle Hill.
