Life on land

Whitsunday Times - - FEATURE | HORSE LOVER HAVEN AT NEW ESTATE -

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.
