Stunning Garth Chapman Queenslander on 5 acres UNDER CONTRACT
Take a deep breath and close your eyes and imagine the sound of native birds and the coastal breeze gently caressing the tree-tops. Welcome to 460 Cootharaba Road, Cootharaba. This could be the ultimate tree change property where your stress levels plummet and harmonizing with nature becomes part of your everyday life.
This is the 1st time this very private 5 acre (2.05ha) property has been offered for sale. One of the many great attributes is an immaculate Garth Chapman built and designed Queenslander home from circa 2003. Warm hardwood floor boards and high ceilings graced with traditional fretwork are signatures of the beautifully crafted Garth Chapman homes. The 2.7m wide verandah wraps around 2 sides of the home and overlooks the native bird attracting gardens and beyond. Three of the four bedrooms open out onto the cool verandah via red cedar French doors with quality brass fittings.
These modern Queenslanders are so popular because the offer the charm and charisma of the 100yr old homes, without all of the ongoing maintenance. This home has a toasty cast iron fireplace in the lounge room and 3 split system air-conditioners throughout the home to keep it comfortable year around. The kitchen is spacious and offers plenty of bench space and breakfast bar. The family bathroom has a great heritage feel with the claw foot bath and matching brass tapware. The larger master bedroom with air-conditioner has great views into the garden and tree-tops plus a well appointed ensuite with double shower. The home is currently empty so we have introduced virtual furniture into some of our photos to give the sense of space and possibility.
The current owners have experienced koala, sugar gliders, possums, wallabies and echidnas to name a few, and being that Cootharaba has one of the most diverse selections of native birds in Australia, there is often visits from whipbirds, king parrots, boobooks and honey-eaters plus many more.
Another outstanding addition to this property (not often found in properties in this price bracket) is a full bitumen driveway leading from the gate all the way to the home and to the 10m American barn shed. Extensive drainage and water diversion has been done properly and the use of large boulders and blockwork retaining walls adds to the appeal and looks impressive.
Along with the massive colourbond shed with extra high-lift centre door, there is ample parking for vehicles under the home all on concrete slab. Location is very handy when considering the peaceful rural lifestyle offered here:
• 21 mins to Noosa Harbour
• 13 mins to Pomona IGA supermarket
• 12 mins to swim and picnic at Boreen point beach
• 47 Mins to Maroochydore airport
• Noosa Trails network nearby for horse riders and hikers
This is a very special property and surprisingly low maintenance for a 5 acre block. There is room for a horse or two and there is a handy dam for pumping from. The property has dog fencing on 3 sides and is very private from barely visible neighbouring homes. Viewing by appointment only or at our scheduled open homes.
