Duplex in 6 Diamond Close, Stratford sells before open home

first_img6a and 6b Diamond Cl, Stratford“The street appeal is amazing. The new owners bought both homes for $1.18 million and they only live a few doors up,” Mr Thronton said.“It was nice that a builder has done something different. The feedback from viewers was that they loved the architecture, the materials, and the choice of location played a huge part. There were a few comments it was similar to what they’d seen down south.“Although they were both amazing, 6b was the more popular. It had more of a traditional, U-shaped kitchen and it was actually a bit bigger inside than 6a. Both had an amazing outlook. 6a and 6b Diamond Cl, Stratford“The build has been amazing for the suburb, there is no real comparison. Because of the block they had to go with something different,” he said.“It was really a matter of trying the market out and the market spoke. Combined with the marketing it would have sold, regardless. They are both beautiful properties.” 6a and 6b Diamond Cl, StratfordMore from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoThe boutique builds both have three bedrooms and two bathrooms over two levels, just a short walk from Stratford’s cafes, shops and a short drive to the Cairns CBD and airport.A large balcony with built-in barbecues and kitchens with high-end appliances, stone bench tops with waterfall edges, gas cooking and a servery to the balcony completed the picture.With floor to ceiling tiles, high-end fittings and rain showers, the bathrooms, including a master ensuite, were also a conversation point with those who looked through the property.Elite Real Estate Services agent Andrew Thronton said more than 40 groups attended the first open home, but both properties, 6a and 6b, had sold before the public managed to get a glimpse. 6a and 6b Diamond Cl, Stratford“The impression when you walk up to the building blows you away – the choice of colours, textures. And once you step inside there is the polished concrete and views over the cane fields towards the north.”Mr Thornton said even if the properties had not sold before the first viewing, they would have been snapped up that weekend.center_img Kyne Boscarini from Boscon Constructions in front of the Stratford duplexes PICTURE: ANNA ROGERSA LOCAL builder has shown just what can be done on some of the city’s hilliest, most difficult terrain.Boscon Constructions owner Kyne Boscarini said the slope of the block at 6 Diamond Close, Stratford had scared many developers off but he was determined to create something Cairns had never seen before.“It was a very steep block, it was a difficult build,” Mr Boscarini said of the site on which now sits a modern, low-maintenance duplex. “But when I looked at it, straight away I had an idea of what I wanted to do with it. 6a and 6b Diamond Cl, Stratford“I grew up down south and I love the architecture down there. I thought I would just try to break the mould. We had polished concrete floors, and the outdoor floor was timber. We just tried to find as many different things as possible. It was the trickiest project to date.“We’re not afraid to build on a difficult block, that’s for sure. I think the thing that’s going to sell well is an architectural build. People want new builds in the older suburbs, closer to town, where land is starting to get scarce, instead of pouring a heap of money into a renovation.” last_img
