The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Char­lotte Du­rut

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.
