Doors open to design mastery

This home at 115 Mackenzie St is set to go under the gavel in December.

THE auctioneer's gavel is poised to drop on this one-of-a-kind home and land package at 115 Mackenzie St in East Toowoomba.

It is impressive enough from the outside, but it is not until the doors open that the designer's true mastery comes on full display.

Raked ceilings of exposed timber set the perfect scene for a relaxing retreat at this double-storey gable home.

It has only been on the market for a week, but Ray White Toowoomba agent Gary Kowaltzke said interest was already high.

He could not even guarantee it would still be available when the December 3 auction date arrives.

"I've never seen another home like it in Toowoomba," he said.

"You walk in there and think 'holy heck, this is amazing'.

"The raked ceilings - meaning they go at the same angle as the roof - make it so spacious.

"There is no jammed-in feel at any part of this home."

The four-bedroom home sits on a 933sq m block surrounded by mature trees within easy walking distance to schools and shops.

Mr Kowaltzke said an office, extra sleepout and two dining rooms and two living spaces make it one of the roomiest homes in the suburb.

"The main bedroom is upstairs, completely separate from the other bedrooms," he said.

"It includes a beautiful little balcony that catches the north-easterly breeze.

"I only opened it for the first time last weekend and there was a lot of interest - and the numbers we talked have been meeting the owners' expectations.

"We have an in-house auction on December 11 at the Picnic Point function centre, but it will be sold beforehand if the right offer is made."
