Turf Farm with Luxury Home
Bendle’s farm at Glenview on the Sunshine Coast, comprises 13.66 hectares or 33.75 acres and is being offered with 11 hectares or 27 acres of turf under production. The property has been under turf production for the past 25 years with the current owners owning and operating the farm for the past 20 years. During that time, they have supplied turf to home owners, builders, developers and commercial projects on the Sunshine Coast and northern suburbs of Brisbane.
The farm is fully irrigated from a spring fed dam and bore with underground mains and three phase pump. The farming area has been laser levelled to provide gentle drainage and could be converted to carry stock, produce fodder crops, horse training or polo fields.
New owners can take advantage of the established crops such as Wintergreen couch, Tropika Blue and Carpet grass in various stages of growth. Turf farming is a lucrative rural enterprise. This sale offers the new owners the opportunity to continue the farms long history of growing turf and continue the business with a large supply of established turf ready to sell. Each hectare of 10,000 sq metres has the potential of producing three crops every two years. The farm is being sold bare of machinery but all equipment including a fully automatic Trebro turf harvester is available for purchase by the buyer after the sale if required.
The residence has been completely renovated and extended to offer a luxurious 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with a separate office. The home is presented “as new” and has been totally renovated from top to bottom, even with a new roof. The home since the renovations has never been lived in. There are all brand new appliances (that have never been used) including stainless steel French door ice-making refrigerator, gas range, microwave, dishwasher and Vintec dual zone under bench wine cabinet. The home features quality, high-end fixtures throughout. The modern kitchen is open planned with marble stone waterfall benchtops, Blum self-closing doors and drawers with concealed handles and a large walk-in pantry.
Throughout are porcelain tiles, beautiful newly laid polished Blue Gum hardwood flooring and New Zealand wool carpets. Double sliding barn doors lead into the family lounge with a limestone wall surrounding the new fireplace, raised hearth and feature concrete look walls. The fire place is one of the outstanding features in the interior.
The homes quality fittings continue with an entertainment hub and study area. All bedrooms are queen size and have built-ins and fans. The main bedroom has a double entry walk-in robe, all Blum self-closing drawers including jewelry drawers and racks for shoes and clothing. The ensuite has double sliding barn doors, dual vanity, walk-in shower and a spa bath that overlooks the beautiful farm.
There is a large verandah at the rear of the house overlooking the swimming pool for entertaining, and a patio off the main bedroom.
The home is protected by quality security screens and a comprehensive electronic security system. Eight CCTV cameras have been installed outside and motion sensing alarms inside.
Outside there is an office for the turf business with its own toilet and shower and verandah. The office is attached to the house but has its own entrance and separate verandah ideal for people to the farm for business yet still be separate from the main living area. Entry to the rear of the house is via an ornate gatehouse that provides privacy and tranquility with soothing water features.
The gardens are fully landscaped with endless free water from your own bore. You could be toasting marshmallows around the fire pit in cooler weather or on those hot summer days, jump into the new magnesium mineral swimming pool that overlooks the entire farm. The home has a solar hot water system, NBN connection and town water.
