    A private driveway leads into the beautifully landscaped and well fenced 1764m2 allotment. This stunning property displays restrained elegance which is a delight to the senses and soothing to the soul. Architecturally designed by Ronald J. Corbet, the house was built in 1960 to the specifications of Dr Doug Cavaye, who later extended the formal living area to give separate formal living and dining areas. Subsequent owners built-in the original courtyard and then created a covered timber deck.
    This spacious 4 bedroom home is located on the prestigious Agnes Street, The Range. A short walk takes you to the Mater Hospital, all private schools on The Range, the Golf Course and the Heritage-listed Rockhampton Botanical Gardens and Zoo. Enjoy being time rich, as in addition, a short drive will take you to all south-side schools, shopping centres and hospitals.
    This stunning home is remarkable for the natural and easy flow between the different living areas. It was well ahead of its time in using energy saving features in its aspect and architecture.
