Hobby Farm on 20 acres - Palmwoods
Discover an exceptional opportunity to own an expansive, contemporary family residence nestled within an enchanting 20-acre expanse (8 hectares) just moments away from Palmwoods. This modern haven promises a luxurious and serene lifestyle, enriched by thoughtful upgrades and a picturesque location.
Originally acquired with a ambitious plan for a five-year transformation however, unforeseen health challenges have curtailed these plans, leading to the decision to offer this remarkable estate to a new owner.
Over the past year, the owner has orchestrated a series of enhancements, including the creation of an inviting post and rail entrance accentuated by a livestock grid. The asphalt driveway leading to the residence has been meticulously resurfaced, complementing various other enhancements
The property’s original state was veiled by decades of overgrowth-lush with weeds, lantana, and unruly regrowth-rendering substantial portions virtually unusable. The owner undertook the arduous task of clearing the land, completely transforming its landscape. This has unveiled captivating vistas of the majestic Buderim Mountain from the residence.
The entire expanse of cleared land has been seeded with a mixture of nutrient-rich pastures and legumes, boasting varieties such as Rhodes Grass, Bisset Creeping Blue, Premier Digitaria, and Aztec Atro. These paddocks are poised to offer superb grazing land once fully established. Additionally, any post-clearing regrowth has been managed through careful spraying.
The property’s boundaries have been fenced by a brand-new ring lock fence, rendering the land conducive to housing a variety of animals including horses, cattle, goats, sheep, alpacas, or even free-range chickens.
Two spring-fed dams provide an excellent water supply, bolstered by an electric pressure pump that efficiently delivers water to the gardens. An unexpected discovery of a concealed dam, which has been restored, further enriches the water resources available. For potential irrigation purposes, an ideal dam site resides in the gully within the rear paddock.
The whole property has rich soil and with the great water supply, renders it ideal for cultivating an array of crops ranging from ginger to fruit trees. Elevated 20 acres ensure no flooding or bogging conditions, providing an optimal environment for both land and animals.
At the bottom of the property is a beautiful rainforest that follows the creek, ideal to establish a rainforest walk and the option to build cabins (with council approval) so guests can experience the joy of staying amongst the bangalow palms and rainforest trees.
The residence is like a small homestead complex made up of a number of different buildings. The main house, built in 1993, is a large double brick home offering space and multitude living areas that would suit the largest of families. Located on a north facing rise it allows for summer breezes and panoramic views over the farm and Buderim Mountain.
Five bedrooms, each adorned with BIR’s, and two well-appointed bathrooms provide ample accommodation. The modern kitchen stands as the heart of the residence, characterized by extensive stone countertops, abundant storage options, modern appliances including a double oven, and ample space for refrigeration. Dual living areas, comprising a family room adjoining the kitchen and a generous separate living room with bar and wood fire heater, offer distinct spaces for relaxation and entertainment. The family room and kitchen seamlessly transition to a spacious patio measuring 13mx6m, boasting insulated panels for comfortable year-round use. Overlooking the in-ground pool, this space is perfect for casual outdoor gatherings, and the pool itself is nestled on the northern side of the house, fully fenced, and partially shaded for sun protection.
At the rear of the house is a 12mx6m brick building that was originally a 4-car garage, which a previous owner renovated into a work from home office. This could be utilised for a variety of uses such as art studio, home office or converted to a granny flat. An adjacent 5mx4m powered shed offers practical space for a workshop. The house yard is fenced and offers ample room for further sheds or buildings.
The home has 50,000 litres of rainwater, a new waste water treatment plant, 24 solar panels with a 6-kw inverter, NBN internet connection, under sink water filter, ducted air conditioning, ceiling fans, insulation and security screens.
Christensens Road is a cul-de-sac with minimal passing traffic, offering seclusion and accessibility. While a short gravel stretch presently leads to the property, we are led to believe that the local council intends to asphalt this road segment by late 2023 or early 2024, further enhancing convenience.
Situated 8 minutes (5 km) from Palmwoods and 12 minutes (10 km) from Nambour, the property affords effortless access to amenities. The coastal allure of Maroochydore beach lies just 22 km away, while the renowned destination of Noosa beckons a mere 54 km (50 minutes) from the estate.
For those seeking to limit their engagement in farming activities, a neighbour is open to leasing a paddock or two for cattle. The choice and flexibility is yours.
For precise navigation, it is advisable to input the address “75 Christensens Road” into digital maps. This will circumvent a route along Hamilton Road at the property’s rear, a road not formed. A mud map is included in the photos which shows directions from Palmwoods.
Owner is committed to sell so, inspect and submit your offer.
