This magnificent private acreage property is now available to rent. Located approximately 15 minutes from surf beaches, the Sunshine Plaza and the airport, the property offers a quiet rural ambience with an elevated northerly aspect across Paynter Creek and Rosemount. Local state and private schools are served by bus pickups in Diddillibah Road and the Woombye train station to Brisbane is just 5 minutes away.
Extensive bitumen driveways wander through remnant forest to the residence and also provide access to the fenced paddocks, which comprise 4.5 acres, in total. The paddocks comfortable carry three horses, and include a separate water tank and troughs and stock shed.
The property includes a mature orchard with dozens of fruit and nut trees, two secure chicken yards and vegetable/herb gardens, all established to enjoy a sense of ‘living off the land’.
4 bedroom double storey residence
The eco-friendly, minimal maintenance, high-set home offers an elevated 180-degree rural vista to the north, designed to capture afternoon breezes without the need for air-conditioners. A 3.1kW solar PV system designed to maximize efficiency, provides renewable energy, along with the separate solar hot water system. The home is drought proofed with 75,000l of water storage as in-ground concrete tanks. All wastewater is treated through an enviro-cycle treatment plant for irrigation to the extensive orchard. Waste power consumption is reduced by a centrally located switch that de-energises all non-essential power points at night and when leaving the building. The steel framed building is fully insulated (walls and ceilings) to provide year round ambient conditions.
The upper story is accessible at ground level from the extensive bitumen area and adjacent 3-vehicle garage and workshop. The imposing French style double entry door from India provides an interesting visual contrast to the minimalist style interior: 2.7m high ceilings, modern square set plaster walls and ceilings and tiled flooring throughout. The wide doorways throughout are wheelchair friendly.

The modern, spacious kitchen features both Caesar stone and stainless steel bench tops, meals bar, large European (Ilve) electric oven and gas cook top and other practical design features to cater for family living.
The separate lounge and living areas are served by a French double-sided fireplace to provide a comfortable ambience during the cooler winter’s evenings.
A large walk-in robe and en suite bathroom off the master bedroom opens out into a private courtyard at the rear of the home. A separate study also opens off the main bedroom. A separate powder room for guests completes the upper level.
The lower story offers the potential for a separate living with three spacious bedrooms, one with walk-in robe and en suite bathroom, the others with built-in robes. A separate toilet and bathroom serve these bedrooms and adjacent lounge/living area that includes a small kitchenette.

A substantial storage room at the lower rear of the building offers a convenient place for all those items used occasionally.
