Will swap part payment for property on Gold Coast.
This unique 1891, heritage listed 3 story sandstone ‘Country Manor House’ on Queensland's Southern Downs, is located in Warwick, a thriving historic regional hub, where the best of both worlds collide with country town charm and all the modern conveniences.
Warwick is located 130 kilometers south west of Brisbane in Queensland’s Southern Downs, on the New England Highway, a major transport route between Sydney and Brisbane – just a short 45 minute helicopter ride from Gold Coast, or just under 2 hours drive from Brisbane.
The Abbey has enjoyed a continued renovation over the past 5 years and boast 50 rooms including 14 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, Chapel, function rooms, function toilet area, commercial kitchen, lounges, space to land a helicopter if needed, tennis court plus 5 staircases on over 10,000 square meters with lawns, gazebo’s, gardens and ample parking. There is also a large area in the building for the next lucky owner to establish a purpose for, to fashion and shape its future in the direction they want.
The building would be a commercial in-viability if attempts were made to replicate the construction and scale, the mark of a bygone era that is all but extinct. The Abbey currently has $8m insurance for replacement.
Some of the buildings claim to fame includes:
• Designed by the same architect as the Breakfast Creek Hotel,
• Stain glass from the Munich Royal Bavarian Art Institute for Stained Glass– who also made glass for the Vatican
• Statue was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, who designed the Statue of Liberty
• Wunderlich pressed metal ceilings featuring fleur-di-lis and Greek cross motifs
Albeit this type of building is more common in Europe, for Australia it is truly a rare opportunity, to privately own such a Stately Manor doesn't come around that often - you would have a lifestyle others dream about, with a built in turn key business that people travel for hours to stay at.
Whist she is prestige home for the current owners, they do use her as a part time B&B business and cater for functions when there as the children don't live with them in Warwick.
Owners would look at renting back for $5,000/week for up to 6 months.
This freehold sale offers the new owner the opportunity to maximize revenue from the existing operations or make a tree change and enjoy the lifestyle of living in a ‘castle in the country' with their family whilst having an established income to what ever degree they like on this rural acreage.
