Ru­ral Colo­nial homestead

The Courier-Mail - Property - - REGIONAL - Char­lotte Du­rut

JUST 70 kilo­me­tres from Bris­bane’s CBD, Nor­manby boasts a beau­ti­ful Colo­nial homestead set on 111 hectares of ex­ten­sively ir­ri­gated land.

Ma­ture trees are dot­ted across the acreage which en­joys views across lush pas­ture­land to War­roolaba Creek while es­tab­lished gar­den beds bor­der the homestead.

The land is ir­ri­gated via un­der­ground mains sys­tems and hy­drants, and the water is sup­plied by a 70-me­gal­itre al­lo­ca­tion from War­roolaba Creek as well as three bores.

Nor­manby also boasts cat­tle yards, a bull-sell­ing ring, a work­shop, a sad­dle room, a meat room, and a room to store chem­i­cals.

The prop­erty has stocked Santa Gertrudis cat­tle as well as horses for many years and these an­i­mals have utilised laneways edged by good fenc­ing.

Mean­while, the lowset homestead over­looks a sweep­ing front yard and an in­ground pool, and en­joys a steep cor­ru­gated iron roof and a wide ve­randa with wrought iron lace­work to the front and rear of the floor­plan.

VJ walls and high ceil­ings fea­ture in­side the home and Silky Oak slid­ing doors di­vide a car­peted for­mal liv­ing and din­ing area with an open fire­place.

There are six bed­rooms in the home with one en­joy­ing a built-in wardrobe and an en­suite with a shower.

The re­main­ing bed­rooms share two bath­rooms, one with a sep­a­rate shower and bath­tub and the other with a shower.

The home also in­cludes an of­fice and sun­room, both with out­side ac­cess, and a large car­port with accommodation for two ve­hi­cles.
