If your initial reaction to our images of this stunning home, set on 10 idyllic acres, include the words style and substance, space and charm, then I would thoroughly agree with your perception. I would also thoroughly recommend an early inspection, or at least a detailed phone conversation, should you currently be interstate. This refreshingly different colonial style property of the highest calibre, in this very quiet corner of Stockleigh (north of Jimboomba), offers quality living space and good old country charm with the modern convenience of both Brisbane and Gold Coast CBDs within the hour.
Level, usable paddocks surround, as you turn off the quiet side road and into the property's driveway which opens to reveal a substantial courtyard, with the main house on one side and the sheds and craft room on the other and gated access to the back paddocks ahead, all of which is surrounded by mature gardens giving both interest and additional privacy.
Entry to the main house, whether through the front or back doors will reveal comfortable and easily accessible deck space allowing an easy transition from inside to outside living, arguably the best configuration for outside living, perhaps the most attractive characteristic of our Queensland climate.
The transition from inside to outside living is invisible, from both the main living areas and the country style kitchen, thanks to 3 sets of substantial French style stacker doors, which sweep aside to deliver uninterrupted access to that main entertaining deck, which is sure to be the family focus, perfectly positioned for access to that sparkling salt pool with gazebo at one end, shade umbrella at the other and ideally designed with the whole family firmly in mind.
Living space inside however is similarly attractive with comfortable lounge, dining and family rooms in an open plan configuration, with the natural ambience of polished timber floors underfoot and impressive deep original cornice work overhead, complimented by similarly impressive ceiling roses, all of which we believe date from the 1940s.
Bedrooms are both plentiful and well sized, with each enjoying a pleasant outlook as indeed you will from every room in the house an unusual, but very welcome feature. In keeping with the living areas, polished timber floors extend to bedrooms which also enjoy excellent cupboard space, as you might expect. A separate study is included, set away from the main living areas, with views to the front and side of the property an ideal work space.
Outside there is a choice of sheds, the main one being 12m x 9m x high, with its own switch board to support plenty of power and light units. The second shed is mainly associated with livestock and is ideal for a boat or horse float. The demountable is used specifically for craft activities, has its own air-conditioning unit and presents to the same high standard as all other aspects of this property. Alternative uses are obvious and would include a separate office for a home based business.
The acreage as you can see is completely usable, offers a choice of 2 dams, has horse shelters and a large round yard in place and retains enough trees for interest and shade for that largest of family pets, known to you and I, as a horse!
As you can appreciate, it has taken our owners many years, many dollars and much imagination to create what they now proudly call home. However, a change now beckons, so this magnificent property is now offered for sale and represents a rare opportunity to enjoy this unique combination of style and substance, surrounded by rural charm, in a location overlooked by many and treasured by the few. Their loss will be your gain, and I can assure you that an early inspection would be time very well spent.
