This 58 acre property and house are located in a private setting with sweeping views of bushland, ranges, sunsets and the night sky. While set in natural bushlands close to farms in the Lockyer Valley, the property is close to local towns and cities in south east Queensland, only 105 km west from the centre of Brisbane. The local rural towns of Grantham and Helidon are just minutes away, and it is only 20 minutes to Toowoomba and 75 minutes to Brisbane.
The large Queenslander house (early 1900’s) has classic features, including verandas across the front and down one side, French doors, fret-work, pressed metal ceilings, VJ timber walls, polished wooden floors, and high ceilings. This renovated house has four bedrooms, separate dinning and lounge rooms, stained timber kitchen, bathroom with claw-foot bath and separate shower, patio and two toilets. The house has been rewired, reroofed, restumped and replumbed, has insulation in the roof, and has very good paintwork inside and out. Two rain water tanks provide 72,000 litres of water for the house, and all waste-water is recycled onto fruit trees via a domestic waste-water treatment plant.
Infrastructure of the property includes two large sheds near the house, horse paddocks, horse yards, shelter shed, a round yard and crush, individually fenced paddocks with improved pastures, two hot houses, two green houses, a flower and foliage plantation, and an underground water system.
The hot houses and shade houses are suitable for commercial use, and the plantation produces foliage and flowers for wholesalers in Sydney and Melbourne. The plants are irrigated with water from the dams through dripper lines.
The water supply for the plantation, hot and green houses, horse troughs, fruit trees, gardens and lawns is supplied from two very large irrigation dams. Each dam, containing at least 8 mega litres, is around 8m deep, 40m wide, and back approximately 120m up the creek. Water from these dams is distributed by a 10 hp diesel motor and Southern Cross mono pump. These dams have never been dry.
This very attractive property, with natural bushlands, heaps of native plants and animals, sandstone outcrops and two creeks, provides a great lifestyle for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
All this for $459,000
