Escape to the farmhouse
ESCAPE the frenetic pace of city life and come home to this comfortable lowset farmhouse just 15 kilometres from Brisbane CBD and spread across one hectare.
The land comprises post and rail fenced paddocks, a horse arena, stables, a tack room and a barn with triple doors as well as rainwater tanks, a fishpond, large lawns and landscaped gardens, and an orchard with fruit and nut trees.
There is also a saltwater pool with a water feature, a tiled sundeck, a barbecue area and a separate, self-contained retreat adjacent to a four-car garage.
Meanwhile, the Colonialstyle home boasts high raked ceilings, timber floors, exposed brick walls, double-hung windows, plantation shutters and French doors.
Set beyond a sweeping driveway which curves past the paddocks, the residence also features a wraparound corrugated iron veranda with a gable roof above the main entrance.
Double timber doors open to an expansive open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with raked ceilings and an exposed brick wall framing a fireplace.
The area enjoys a rustic ambience with the kitchen featuring an island bench of Red Cedar as well as granite benchtops, timber cabinetry and stainless steel appliances including a gas cooktop.
There is also access from this space to the pool and outdoor barbecue area.
To one side of the open-plan space is the main bedroom which enjoys a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with twin vanities, a shower and a spa bath.
Nearby is another bedroom with built-in wardrobes, which enjoys access to the backyard and pool.
To the other side of the floorplan are two bedrooms with French doors opening to the front veranda, which share a bathroom with a separate bathtub and shower. Also in this area is a laundry. The self-contained retreat comprises a bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom with a shower.
