Amazing Queenslander architecture on 1720m2
Home and garden are intertwined into a magnificent Queenslander style country escape overlooking most of Mount Compass and views over the Nangkita Valley. Traditional decked verandahs front and rear grace the weatherboard cladding, elevated above the 4 car garage and massive workshop with 3 phase power below. Front of home is decorated in a profusion of purple wisteria, and a cluster of orange cliveas beneath the grand double staircase are only a hint of the splendour of the rear garden, a true horticultural masterpiece, set amongst a stand of ancient stringybarks.
Built in 2004 on a huge 1720m2 block, this style of Architecture is quite rare in South Australia, with the owners wanting to enjoy earlier reminders of years gone by back in Queensland. The floorplan is semi open plan, offering four bedrooms, two bathrooms, several living areas plus at least two dining/meals areas with fabulous views in every direction. The chef will enjoy cooking in the spacious kitchen with fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden. Lots of outdoor spaces to relax and breath in the fresh country air, listening to a myriad of birds.
The loungeroom greets your visitors after their climb up the staircase, either gasping from the few treads, or most likely from the view behind them, which is absolutely spectacular.
Family room is the hub of the home, though with the panoramic scenery all around the TV will likely be rarely used.
Spacious all electric white kitchen with walk in pantry and dishwasher for cooking up a storm for resplendent dinner parties with white table cloths and your best fine bone china and silver in the formal dining area if you like, or more informal dining adjacent to the family room/kitchen. If its just the two of you, supper will likely be outside, or by the cute little dining nook overlooking the lovely garden.
Massive master bedroom located at the front of the home, with large enquite and walk in wardrobe, located at the opposite end of the home to the minor bedrooms.
The minor bedrooms range from enormous to medium, both with built in wardrobes, to a smaller bedroom, currently used for a sewing room/study.
Large ensuite with room for a second vanity if desired, spacious shower.
3 way bathroom with separate toilet, shower, bath and separate vanity area.
Typical laundry for domestic washing machine, plenty of room for storage and close to outdoor washing line.
It would take a great poet to put into words the magnificence of the garden, Im not even going to try, Lets just say most of the currents owners friends have been shocked this treasure has never been entered in the Australian Open garden scheme. I feel confident if the new owner did enter, they would surely be an instant finalist in any garden competition.
At the rear of the home is a large decked area to sit, relax and admire the live artwork. The first strokes on the canvas were by nature, the ancient stringybarks, from there the work commenced to build a picturesque but low maintenance garden. Enjoy meandering paths amongst rustic garden beds with plants like azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons, wisteria, lilly pilly, clivea, dwarf agapanthus, hydrangeas, princess lilly, magnolia, crab apples, flowering pink gums, roses, crepe myrtle, grevillia, various bulbs and so much more.

WHY ARE THEY MOVING?
A difficult decision to say the least, the owners have a have a yearning to join the grey nomads and experience the wonders of this amazing country we live in.
