Hin­ter­land hideaway awaits

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKETPLACE - Stephen Nadin

WITH im­pres­sive views of the sur­round­ing coun­try­side and Mt Eer­wah, this six-year-old coun­try re­treat sits on nearly 85 hectares of Sun­shine Coast hin­ter­land just 20 min­utes’ drive from the beaches at Noosa.

In­flu­ences from homes in The Hamp­tons on Long Is­land, New York were used in the de­sign of the main res­i­dence, which is set high on a lot cov­er­ing 20.8 hectares.

The prop­erty is of­fered as one 84.98 hectare al­lot­ment con­sist­ing of three in­di­vid­ual lots.

A pri­vate road winds through farm land past a 500-year-old white Fig tree to the homestead, which has Euro­pean Oak par­quetry floor­ing com­bined with 10 foot ceil­ings.

French doors are fea­tured throughout the res­i­dence and win­dows with plan­ta­tion shut­ters en­hance the spa­cious and light-filled in­te­rior.

French doors with win­dow lou­vres ei­ther side are within the main en­try, which also pro­vides ac­cess to a three­car garage with wine cel­lar and stor­age, and a nearby pow­der room.

Bi-fold win­dows and a break­fast bar in the kitchen have views to Mt Eer­wah with the room boast­ing gran­ite bench­tops, tim­ber cab­i­netry with soft close draw­ers, ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a dou­ble oven, a pantry and 750-bot­tle wine cel­lar.

Nearby is a laun­dry with out­side ac­cess.

The kitchen looks to the for­mal din­ing area with a dou­ble-sided fire­place fea­tur­ing hand-crafted Cooroy stone.

There is ac­cess to a cov­ered ve­randa and views to Mt Eer­wah and to a sep­a­rate north­east-fac­ing deck with a built-in bar­be­cue and over­look­ing a 14 me­tre hori­zon edge lap pool.

The open-plan de­sign flows to a for­mal liv­ing room also fea­tur­ing the fire­place and ac­cess to the ve­randa and deck.

This sec­tion of the floor­plan

is com­pleted by a li­brary with tim­ber cab­i­netry and a win­dow seat.

In a sep­a­rate wing is a study, me­dia room with car­pet, a three-me­tre screen, pro­jec­tor and sur­round sound sys­tem, and three bed­rooms each fea­tur­ing ac­cess to the deck, car­pet, a ceil­ing fan and an en­suite with a shower.

The im­pres­sive main bed­room is on the first floor and can be ac­cessed via a lift as well as a tim­ber stair­case.

There is a large walk-in wardrobe in­clud­ing a sink and fridge, car­pet floor­ing, a fire­place with mar­ble sur­round and en­suite with a stand-alone bath­tub, sep­a­rate shower and dou­ble basins within a traver­tine block.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude ducted vac­uum sys­tem, in­ter­com, Back-to­base se­cu­rity sys­tem, multi-unit ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and 75,000-litre con­crete rain wa­ter stor­age

A three-bed­room care­taker’s cottage is set on 23.5 hectares at the en­trance to the main home.

There is also 40.8 hectares of va­cant land which has been ap­proved as a home site.

The prop­erty also fea­tures two per­ma­nent creeks, a dam, cat­tle yards and a mas­sive stor­age shed in­clud­ing farm equip­ment.
