Leading off the entrance foyer to the left is a spacious lounge room ideally suited for entertaining guests. There are custom made Red Cedar french doors opening out on to the wide verandah with adjoining glass louvres that maximise air flow as well as extend the extensive views from the front and sides of the property. At the rear of the house there is undercover parking for up to six vehicles as well as undercover access to the rear entrance of the house and the separate 'Granny Flat or Office'. At the front corner of the house yard is a twenty metre indoor saltwater lap pool with a removeable shade canopy in the center. The main house has been designed to maximize airflow with prevailing breezes and has large surrounding verandahs to the front of the building as well as a bull dog style awning at the rear. It has extensive and deep enviro friendly ceiling insulation throughout, high ceilings, ceiling fans in every occupied room including bedrooms, it also has a large split system air conditioner for those very hot still days. It also has a 5kw feed in tariff solar system which can be easily converted to an independant power plant with new age technology storage batteries. Satellite is installed for both internet and television services. Landline and mobile phone services are also available and installed. The house yard has been extensively landscaped including a large paved court yard and a pergola ideal for BBQ's and outdoor entertaining.
Below is a massive barn with adjustable indoor and outdoor stalling. Up to nine standard 12' stalls can be accommodated inside and five outside unless double size stalls are preferred and can easily be accommodated as well with the flexibility of the metal panel stalls. The barn has a very wide paved center aisle large enough to drive a through with a large horse trailer or gooseneck and load up under cover as well as leave horses tied up. There is also a large paved area suitable for tack and or feed area or both. There is an adjoining 20m x 20m indoor riding arena as well as a 60m x 40m outdoor riding arena which is fully panel fenced. This also serves as a sorting/catch area for stock. There is a forcing yard and loading ramp. The entire property has been fenced into 8 paddocks and two lanes which connect to the arena and yards for ease of stock management. A freshly painted three bedroom two bathroom manager/trainers cottage adjoins the barn area as well as a machinery shed/workshop with one double lock up bay with a cement slab and two open earth bays.
Bellavue has drought proofing creek frontage on two sides and 30,000 gallons of tank water split between the main house and the barn/cottage area. With the extensive rain catchment roof area the owners rarely have had to use the creek water except to water stock even during extreme dry weather events previously. There are also two dams on the property.
In past years the property has easily carried 50 plus breeders and over 20 stabled and pastured horses.
The school bus runs past the front gate. Imbil is 12 minutes away, Gympie 40 mins and the Noosa beaches less than an hour's drive.
The other rapidly growing activity in this area is Endurance horse riding and competitive trail riding with many large scale high end interstate and overseas operations having moved into this quiet and beautiful area because of the abundance of scenic forestry trails open to the sport surrounding the area.
This unique purpose built property has served the owners well over the years for cattle breeding and performance horse breeding and training. However an opportunity to live in the U.S. has caused a change of plans so a once in a lifetime opportunity exists for some fortunate new owner to enjoy this truly beautiful and unique place and property.
