Huge home on 20 acres, 18m lap pool, full-sized tennis court
RARELY does a property of such blue ribbon quality and excellent value come on the market in the Gympie region.
Located on 20 picturesque acres with 360 degree views over The Dawn and up the Mary Valley, this property is just 8 minutes' drive south from the Gympie CBD and a half hour drive to Noosa Heads.
The four-bedroom home offers dual living in air-conditioned comfort, with a large rumpus room leading off three of the "kids" bedrooms (all with built-ins). A separate toilet and bathroom and "games" cupboard completes the "kids wing". Large sliding doors lead from the rumpus room and one of the kids bedrooms to the wide veranda.
Down the wide hallway is a storage room, large laundry with oodles of bench, cupboard and hanging space, and across the hall is the spacious office which could easily serve as a fifth bedroom. Also located at this end of the house is the air-conditioned master bedroom with ensuite, walk-in robe and French doors leading out to a private "parents escape" deck.
The 9m x 6m expanse of the terracotta tiled main living area includes timber bifold doors, a built-in central fire place, and views through the many security screened windows. Adjoining this area is the massive timber kitchen, with solid black granite bench tops and island bench with wine rack and loads of extra storage.
The huge veranda wraps around much of the home and looks out over the full-sized tennis court with lights, and architect designed and landscaped 18m, fully tiled, lap pool, which also features a cyclone proof shade umbrella, 2.4m deep lagoon, pavilion, solar heating and waterfall. The pool pavilion catches those delicious afternoon breezes and is the ideal spot for entertaining family, friends and clients, or just laying back with a book and whiling away those warm summer afternoons.
One third of the three-bay shed has been converted into a tiled and insulated guest bedroom complete with amenities.
The property is fully fenced and has a domestic water licence on the pristine and permanent Calico Creek. The property enjoys about 200m frontage to the creek which is the perfect place for a family picnic, and a dip in the refreshingly cool waterhole where platypus are regularly spotted.
As if all of this was not enough, established, easy-to-maintain gardens include a productive avocado and lime tree, bowen mango trees and natives that attract plenty of birdlife. The good-sized chook-house includes an "outside access" nesting box.
This property is genuinely offered for sale at a reduced price of $795,000.
