On the market for the first time in three decades, this spectacular property presents a unique opportunity to fashion the lifestyle of your dreams. Nestled within a private valley sanctuary and enclosed by thousands of acres of national forest, the fully fenced 73.4ha property is bounded by Little Yabba and Booloumba Creeks. The options are only limited by your imagination, and include full beef operation, a commercial horse facility, eco-tourism, holiday rentals, wellness retreat, forestry, cropping, or a mixture of all these.
The sumptuous off-grid home is a work of master craftsmanship. Constructed from rammed earth, natural marble and local hardwood and cabinet timbers, it perfectly embodies the serenity and stunning natural beauty of its environment. Touches of luxury - like the Norman Richards designed interior, 2.7m high ceilings, ensuite with east-facing spa to capture the moon rise, travertine benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and large slow combustion timber and imitation log gas fireplaces - ensure new owners will enjoy an unmatched Noosa hinterland lifestyle.
The passive solar design and insulation afforded by the construction materials ensures the home stays deliciously cool in summer and warm in winter. A large solar system and battery bank provides abundant power and allows easy use of the appliances and amenities.
The open plan living space features Blackbutt flooring and a design for entertaining, with a showpiece kitchen featuring elegant Solid American Oak cabinetry, a David Linton Blackbean island bench, new 800mm Emilia gas stove and oven, integrated Liebherr side by side fridge and freezer, and integrated Asko dishwasher. This area flows onto a wide, covered timber deck, where you can relax with loved ones and soak up the fresh country air, tranquility, and northerly outlook across the lush paddocks to the gently rolling ranges. The main bedroom boasts a walk-in robe, stylish ensuite with shower and bath, plus a reading nook overlooking the breathtaking northern aspect. Other bedrooms are all double size.
This diverse property encompasses mixed river flats, rolling country and wooded hill areas, with direct access to state forest and national park for superb horse riding and bushwalking. Expect to see plenty of native birdlife and fauna, including wallabies, kangaroos and pademelons, and a koala colony in the natural forest portion. Water security is high thanks to five dams, the river boundaries, and four concrete underground tanks offering approximately 112,000 litres of rainwater storage.
Additional features include a 6-bay shed (2 bays with elevated timber floors), 30,000 litre water storage attached to the shed, five paddocks, steel cattle yards, vet crush, loading ramp and a levelled area ready for a 40 x 20m dressage arena. All this is just 10 minutes from thriving Kenilworth, a popular Mary River tourism destination, and less than 40 minutes to the markets, shops, schools and cafes of Eumundi.
For the discerning buyer, this hinterland sanctuary offers unrivalled potential, privacy and immersion in serene natural surroundings - plus a unique, elegant abode. Be very quick to secure your exclusive inspection.
