Picture: Josh Woning.A CAIRNS real estate agent on a one-man crusade to save the city’s historic Queenslander houses wants Far North home buyers to start embracing the traditional building style.LJ Hooker Cairns South’s Cheyenne Morrison started the Cairns Queenslanders Facebook group late last year and has pledged a donation of five per cent of each sale of a Queenslander home to the Cairns Historical Society.“I love history and see the beauty in old things, so to me each Queenslander house with its unique design and history is precious,” he said. “Sadly, at the moment most home buyers do not care about the history of some this city’s oldest buildings, although that is changing gradually.” Mr Morrison said, with its distinctive timberwork, veranda and corrugated iron roof, the Queenslander was “the antithesis of bland modern homes”.“ It is synonymous with the tropical lifestyle — the outdoors and a leisurely way of life. It signals both a unique lifestyle and the uniqueness of its occupants,” he said.“You won’t see suburbs like this in Paris, New York or London. You won’t even find them in Sydney or Melbourne.“Each time I see a perfectly good Queenslander pulled down to make way for an ugly concrete box, I feel that Cairns has another part of its soul.”He said Brisbane residents had “once again discovered the beauty” of Queenslanders and their appreciation in value in the capital has had a knock on effect in Cairns. “Queenslanders also seem particularly appealing to southerners who move to Cairns, and a lovely Queenslander in Edge Hill, Freshwater or Stratford with a view has become a bit of dream home,” he said.Emma Roberts bought her Martyn St Queenslander in 2009 and spent 12 months restoring it to its former glory.She completed all the sanding and painting herself and sourced second hand doors and window fittings in keeping with the home’s 1930s heritage.“I’d been looking for two-and-a-half years for something because I wanted a really big yard so I could create a mini farm and vegie garden,” she said.“A lot of people told me I was making a big mistake but now everyone loves it.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days ago“I love the massive size of the block, the vista out to the Yarrabah mountains and you can get to Cairns Central quicker on a bike than the car.”Now worth more than $650,000, the home features three bedrooms upstairs and four bedrooms on the ground level which are let through AirBnB.“If we don’t save these homes we’re going to look like every other city in the world,” Ms Roberts said.“I honestly believe we use less power, so we’re more environmentally friendly. After all, this is how our ancestors lived.“We don’t have air conditioning, we just have fans and there’s really only four or five nights of the year when you wish you had airconditioning.”Vicki Brodie started Upcycled Queenslander Homes in an attempt to save and recycle old Queenslander houses which would otherwise be demolished to make way for more modern buildings throughout Cairns. She said feedback via the group’s Facebook page had been so positive the group is keen to work with relevant authorities to develop a clearer and simpler approval process to help preserve Queenslanders. “There are considerable start up costs associated with this business so our progress has been slow and we haven’t had the capital funds to move more houses to our storage site, which can accommodate up to six homes,” she said. “And while local state and federal MPs have verbally given very positive support to our venture there doesn’t seem to be any funding available to assist with conservation measures to protect the Queenslander and our urban heritage.” Ms Brodie said the biggest problem with relocation was the approval process which she described as “confusing and time consuming”.“It can take months to get all your approvals in place, and developers quite often can’t or won’t wait, so they demolish the house to make a start on the new building,” she said.“Older timber homes have charm and appeal and are very strong. And I think people are also more likely to want recycled product in their home from and environmental point of view.”
