RURAL HAVEN IN DULONG
Forest Views, is an exclusive horse and cattle property, boasting 38 lush acres with modern house, separate guest quarters and spectacular views.
Meander along the majestic 400m concrete driveway, through the solar powered entrance gates passing the impressive equestrian facilities and arrive at the very stylish, renovated low set house, studio and offices bathed in a colourful array of manicured hedges and shrubs.
This gorgeous family home beautifully positioned on the knob of a hill, with panoramic views is a home to yearn for. Renovated according to Feng Shui principles and with a flavour of both modern and country, this home emits a beautiful, relaxed energy for families to prosper and flourish.
The feature of the house is the magnificent stone island bench and breakfast bar in the kitchen. The forest views have been captured by large glass doors and windows throughout the home, especially in the main living areas. Step outside the sliding doors from the kitchen/dining room and delight in picking the fruits of the established citrus trees and herb garden. Or simply slide open the stacker doors in the lounge and sit back and enjoy the views, tranquillity and aroma of bush gardenia and orange blossom.
This cute Queenslander styled building, currently functioning as 2 offices, has been cleverly designed to convert into a second liveable dwelling. The dividing wall between the 2 offices is demountable and has water, power, phone, computer, stone bench tops and cupboards for kitchenette plus 2 A/C units. This 64m2 raised steel framed, timber clad building with Jarra deck, French doors and separate wheelchair access door and timber ramp would make an excellent granny flat.
GUEST ACCOMMODATION / GARAGE:
A 20m2 extension added to the existing 2 car brick garage, has a kitchenette, toilet, shower, vanity, wall mounted TV and fold out sofa bed, currently used by staff but also functions as separate guest accommodation.
The adjoining garage, currently used for business and storage, has A/C, phone and computer points, and can easily be converted into a teenage retreat, games room, gym or larger accommodation.
The garage has a single roller door allowing parking for one car plus an adjoining carport for additional under cover parking.
The saying, A shed is never big enough, is not true in this case. This massive 31m x 14m shed with a ceiling height of 4.5m can accommodate the largest of horse trucks, boats and farm machinery.
In fact, it houses another shed which has been converted into a tack room, feed room, gym and storage area and cleverly adjoins the two stables. The monster shed has 3 phase power, 15 amp and 20 amp power points for the largest of power tools, a work bench, huge sawdust and wood bay, and room for another 6 horse portable stables.
The equestrian facilities are set up for the professional equestrian enthusiast with top of the range facilities including 2 x Olympic dressage arenas, 20m diameter round yard, and a 70 x 30m show jumping arena. All arenas are floodlit with excellent drainage and enough car and float parking for small equestrian clinics and training days. In addition, the equestrian centre has toilet facilities, coffee facilities and is far enough from the main house for facilities to be leased.
The facilities include 3 lockable tack rooms in equestrian area, Wash-bay with roof and concrete base, 4 day yards, 4 paddocks, 5 large grazing areas for horse and cattle rotational grazing, water to all paddocks and yards, tack room – in shed, feed room – in shed and 2 x Stables each 4x4m adjoining shed.
Property typically runs 20 – 40 head of grass fed drought master beef cattle. 5 large fully fenced grazing areas gated for paddock rotation, all with water. Beef Boss cattle crush, loading ramp and yards.
4 x concrete water tanks with storage capacity of 120,000 litres. Huge roof area from house and shed means all water tanks fill from minimal rainfall, 1 x spring fed dam approx. 500,000 litres, access to Echidna Creek and South Maroochy River. High rain fall area approx 1500mm per year. In a nutshell, you will never run dry on this property!
Hot-wired black timber post and rail fencing borders all horse yards and paddocks with quality electrified horse rail fencing subdividing land for pasture rotation.
This property is suitable for families large or small looking for a healthy, relaxed, country lifestyle but still wanting the beaches, schools and all amenities reasonably close by. It’s ideal for the small farmer, equestrian enthusiast, vet or home based business person who would like to make a living from the land or business.
