The romance of the iconic Queenslander lives on in this 1994 home, with its cool, deep wraparound verandahs that seem to go forever.
Carefully sited to exploit the sensational long views over the treetops to distinctive Mt Cooroora, the home has a north facing aspect and offers absolute privacy.
Freshly painted throughout in bright whites, it is ready for you to imprint your personality.
With lofty views to the north, the large tiled living-dining space has new fans and lights, and a built-in wood fire for cosy winter evenings.
The country kitchen has limed Tasmanian oak cabinetry, 2-pac benchtops, pantry, and electric stove and oven.
The spectacular views can also be enjoyed from the generous carpeted master bedroom which flows out to the rear verandah, taking full advantage of the aspect. Imagine waking to the chorus of whipbirds and stepping out to greet the morning in utter peace and privacy. This has got to be good for the soul. The ensuite comes with a shower and double vanity and the walk-in robe offers plenty of storage.
The queen-sized second bedroom, with built-in robe, also opens out to the rear verandah and is newly carpeted, as is the third smaller bedroom. The main bathroom has a shower over bathtub and a separate toilet.
The rear verandah extends eastwards to a 6m X 7m covered, octagonal deck with sink, power outlet and ceiling fan - perfect for casual Sunday brunches, family celebrations, or sundowners with friends as you watch the weather roll by.
The house has timber hardwood frames throughout and downstairs is a large tiled space which has sliding glass doors that open to the garden, framing the northerly vista and flooding the room with light. With its own bathroom with shower, and separate toilet, the possibilities here are endless - arts and crafts, yoga studio, granny flat. With its own entrance, there's also the potential for dual living.
Also on this level is the laundry with stainless steel benchtop, lots of storage, and access to both the 5-car garage and the covered patio that flows to the lovingly cared for landscaped gardens.
Stroll through the gardens and find yourself drawn along a magical grassy avenue, edged by a diversity of majestic native species including blackbutt, white mahogany and crows ash. Follow the ridge along and enjoy the delightful surprise of a large dam, stocked with silver perch, ready for you to cast your line in, plunge in for a skinny dip, or simply sit quietly and revel in the marvel of nature.
