A Grand & Secluded 40 Square Country Manor House On 3 Acres Of Picturesque BeautyIf your soul yearns for that feeling of country living with all the trimmings, then this big country manor style home with its wide bullnosed verandahs offers all those special qualities of the grand farmhouse along with the opportunity to do a little avocado farming (contract out the hard work if you wish). Those 80 fully mature trees form part of one of the finest orchards on Mount Tamborine and will provide a tidy income for whoever owns them. Yet, this 3 acre property is so much more than just part of a serious working farm. It has that unique position and privacy that makes is almost impossible to find, at least without a GPS system. It is situated right at the end of Manitzky Street and accessed via a private bitumen road that sweeps up the rise and vanishes into the skyline at the top. Entry is via an electronically controlled gate and the private road is the domain of just 4 acreage properties. This home is not visible until you are well up that private road.
Such seclusion is hard to find at any time, yet isolation is not a problem here. The property is within walking distance of North Tamborine's Main Street and very close to Witches Chase National Park. In fact, bank of the trees that can be seen from the front verandah are inside the National Park. All schools, including Tamborine Mountain College are close by, as are various churches, the ambulance station and the local fire station. This is good, very gently undulating walking country for people who might enjoy walking with a dog and one of the little known entry points to the National Park walking trails is also just outside the entry gate.
The home with its 9 foot high ceilings is impressive but far from ostentatious. It is what it purports to be, a large and very comfortable, contract built family home situated on a working farm that has recently been subdivided into 4 acreage farmlets. Like all country homes, the kitchen is the centre of life and few kitchens offer the space, storage and quality that this grand tiled Tassie Oak and black granite kitchen does. All the stainless steel cooking and electrical items have recently been updated including a new Miele gas cook top, stainless steel wall oven and matching microwave oven. There is a lovely timber and glass door leading out to the verandah and an arched servery window opening to the formal living area as well as a roomy family dining at the end of the kitchen. The tiled and air conditioned family lounge / rumpus room is also adjacent to the kitchen as well as the covered rear deck which is not too far away from that exit door.
The formal living is spacious with ample sitting room as well as the width to accommodate a long banquet table. Extra large windows looking out over the verandahs to the gardens and 2 archways entering from the long tiled entry hallway provide an open, yet cosy feeling inside this formal space where drinks before dinner seem totally appropriate. The family room is also large and there is plenty of space in the family dining adjoining the kitchen. Like the living areas, all 4 bedrooms are quite spacious and the tiled home office is plenty big enough to be a 5th bedroom if needed. A pull-out double sofa bed would be easily accommodated here for those pesky extra guests.
Yet, it is also the setting with its beauty, peace and seclusion that plays such an important role in this total package. The gardens are casual country with everything from tall palms to beautiful Jacarandahs and native trees too are dotted over the sweeping lawns bounded by colourful garden beds replete with ornamental shrubs like camellias and flowering annuals. It reality, it is a simple garden that is easy to maintain in its current beauty, while it conveys that feeling of a real country manor style. Everything is here on the grounds of the property including the swimming pool, the extra car accommodation and the farm sheds, all in good order. With the water bore producing abundant pure water and irrigation everywhere, this entire property is always lush and picturesque throughout the year.
This is a perfect country retreat. A place to live and laugh, a place to entertain friends in elegant formality or around a BBQ by the pool. It has everything that any family could aspire to own and above all it has that glorious privacy and tranquility that is a priceless treasure in this hurried, crowded era in which we live in the 21st century.
