Have you been dreaming of a tree change, but don't want to sacrifice the convenience of town? This stunning property of approx. 40 acres, less than 10km from delightful Cooroy, could be your answer.

Situated on a ridge, the 2-storey home has been perfectly positioned to make the most of spectacular views across native bush and lush rolling hills. The 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom concrete block and panel cladding house has recently been updated with a contemporary kitchen and new bathrooms.

Downstairs, the living zone is comprised of a spacious open-plan lounge and dining area. A combustion fireplace sets the scene for cosy winter evenings with family and friends. The brand-new kitchen has been completed in neutral colours and features stone benchtops, new rangehood, electric oven and cooktop.

Enjoy the views across the property towards Kenilworth Bluff through the large glass doors and windows. Better still, step outside onto one of two generous outdoor entertaining areas, including a covered patio. Imagine spending days gazing across your tranquil property, accompanied by the sounds of native birds and perhaps a visit from the resident kangaroos. Evenings might include quiet drinks watching the sunset over the mountains.

The upstairs area contains the bedrooms, and also makes excellent use of those views. All 4 bedrooms are double size with built-in robes. The master bedroom is loft-style, with soaring ceilings adding to the sense of space.

Both bathrooms are modern, with the upstairs bathroom featuring a shower and bath, while the downstairs bathroom is combined with a new laundry.

Back outside, the area around the house is level, with manicured gardens and park-like lawns for the kids to play on. Of the 40 undulating acres, approximately 30 are cleared and suitable for grazing. Water is abundant, with tanks providing approximately 45,000 litres for the house and 8,000 litres for the garden, could be supplemented by two dams. The property even has its own creek.

There is parking for 4 vehicles, a shed, and room to build a horse arena between the home and the road.

A peaceful country drive of about 10 minutes will see you in Cooroy, where you'll find schools, shops, cafes and public transport. And you can be on the beach at Noosa Heads in around half an hour.

If you're attracted by the idea of peaceful and private rural living - with the convenience of town close by - be quick to arrange your inspection of this idyllic hinterland retreat.
