It could be a professional couple not with really young kids but maybe teenage children who work at the hospital or are a lecturer at JCU.“It may also be an older couple downsizing from a two-storey home so it could appeal to a range of buyers.”Open for inspection Sunday 11.30am-12pm and Wednesday 6pm-6.30pm.
