Large modern home on 20 acres – Hunchy

Offers Over $2,000,000

Here is an opportunity to purchase a large modern family home on a fantastic acreage (8 ha or 20 acres) only minutes to Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast. This is an off- market purchase as the property has not been officially been listed for sale.

The owner who resides next door, purchased this property approximately 12 months ago with the aim of improving it over a five-year period. Unfortunately, due to health issues he is unable to continue to renovate the property and is now willing to sell, with offers over $2m.

Since his purchase he has carried out extensive improvements to the property which are as follows-  

The construction of an attractive post and rail entrance complete with a livestock grid.

When purchased, the property was completely over grown with 30 years of weeds and regrowth which made the majority of the land unusable. The owner has now cleared the weeds and regrowth which in itself was a big job. This clearing has opened up the land to such an extent that now there are views of Buderim Mountain from the house.

The entire cleared area of land has been sown with seed mixture of pastures and legumes. The pasture varieties sown are Rhodes Grass, Bisset Creeping Blue, Premier Digitaria and Gatton Panic. Legume varieties are Seca Stylo, Progardes Desmananthus and Aztec Atro. Once established, these areas will be excellent grazing country.

NOTE - Aerial photographs do not show the clearing that has been carried out.

Any regrowth that has emerged since the clearing has also been sprayed.

 The property boundary has been fenced with a brand-new ring lock fence which means the land can now be utilised for running of horses, cattle, goats, sheep, alpacas or even free-range chickens.

There is excellent water, with two spring feed dams. An electric pump, pumps water from the dams up to the house for use in the garden. During the clearing process another dam was discovered, hidden in the undergrowth.  This dam has been repaired and now can be filled from the existing dams.

The whole property has very rich soil and with the great water supply, the land is suitable for the growing of a variety of small crops such as ginger or even fruit trees.

The 20-acre property is elevated therefore, there is no flooding and no bogging of animals.

At the bottom of the property there is a beautiful rainforest that follows the creek. An ideal area to establish one’s own rainforest walk.

The residence, built in 1993, is a large double brick home that would suit the largest of families. Located on a north facing rise it allows for beautiful summer breezes, views over the paddocks and great views to Buderim Mountain

The home has 5 bedrooms all with built in robes and two bathrooms. The large modern kitchen has great storage, extensive stone benches, modern appliances including a double oven and room for two refrigerators.

There are two living areas – the family room, adjacent to the kitchen, and a living room with a bar and a wood fire heater. This room overlooks the inground pool.  Both living areas open out onto a large 13m x 6m patio area constructed using insulated patio panels that ensures excellent cooling and easy maintenance.

The pool is fully fenced and has a sun shade over part of the pool which gives sun protection in the summer months.

At the rear of the house is a 12mx 6m brick building that could be used as an art studio, home office or converted to a granny flat. There is also a 5m x 4m powered shed which would be great for a workshop.

The home has 45,000 litres of rainwater, a new wastewater treatment plant, 24 solar panels with a 6-kw inverter, ducted air conditioning, ceiling fans, insulation and security screens throughout.

The home is currently rented until July 2023 for $900 per week.

The property is only 5km or an 8-minute drive to the township of Palmwoods and 10 km or 12 minutes to Nambour. Maroochydore beach is only 22 km away while Noosa is 54 km or a 50-minute drive.

Properties like these are highly sought after but rarely found.
