Life on land
THERE’S something special about owning rural property.
Waking up to nature’s call as the roosters cry or perhaps as the sun begins to beam into your room.
The wind picks up and the trees blow a little heavier. There’s a slight rustle in the air and suddenly you know it’s time to start your day.
You have your morning coffee overlooking your acre and watch the rest of the sleepy part of your world slowly come to life too.
Your horses need to be fed or maybe the local wildlife decides to visit.
Perhaps you have children and they’re wanting to play outside.
You smile as you realise the childhood you have given them – space to roam, explore, make a mess and run amok.
When everyone or everything is packed and ready to go, you leave your utopia but know what awaits your return.
Telford Rise developer Louie Berger is passionate about rural property.
“I simply love the outdoors,” he said.
Living on acreages for most of his life, he says it gives you a lovely prospect on life.
“It’s very pretty and very private – does wonders for your soul.”
Mr Berger bought Telford Rise almost three years ago from a friend who owned a share in it.
It took him eight months to transform the land into a gated estate which he did mostly himself.
He said the new Strathdickie estate was unique compared to any rural land he had experienced.
“It’s picturesque, tranquil and private and it’ll even have its own horse arena,” he said.
With an ever-growing horse owning and riding population in the Whitsundays, First National real estate agent Andrea Clarke stresses it doesn’t get better than Telford Rise.
“There’s space to keep your horse, exclusive bush to go riding and the estate’s very own horse arena,” she said.
Described as a rare diamond in the Whitsundays, Telford Rise gives you the best of both worlds with the serenity of rural living and the coast only a short 10 minute drive away.
