With one of the best views to Mt Cooroy, this colonial Queenslander home is privately set on a beautiful and established 1.7 acres. A poinciana lined driveway sets the scene for this quality property. A true classic, the timber home has a timeless appeal and was originally built in 1896 for the original settlers of Nambour. It still reflects a romantic style and the glory of yesteryear. Fully restored and in excellent condition the home has been recently painted and is now air conditioned in the living and main bedroom too. Butterfly stair case entry, wide hallway with decorative breezeway details, and merbau timber decks are just the start. All bedrooms are a good size with the main bedroom featuring a modern ensuite bathroom and a walk in robe! The main bathroom is more original in style and boasts a claw foot bath. Timber ceilings and VJ walls throughout that stretch to 11'7" (3 metres) and gorgeous 6" polished timber boards on the floors emphasise the homes absolute charm. The country style kitchen overlooks the property and features gas cooking/electric oven and is situated with direct access to two verandahs. Doors and louvre windows are screened and capture the gentle breezes and outlook.
The impressive in ground salt water pool has grassed surrounds and is shaded by another gorgeous shady poinciana tree that adds to the usability of this area. An enjoyable stroll around the grounds finds a mixture of manicured lawns and gardens with a mature mango grove, large dam and a 2 bay shed (9m x 7m) currently used as an artists studio. Car parking is underneath the home with under cover stairs direct to the verandah, plus this area has a lockup storage/workshop space with work benches included. This delightful property is surrounded by larger acreages giving that sense of space without the maintenance of more land.
