Escape to the serene countryside and embrace a self-sufficient way of life on this remarkable 39.56-acre (16.01Ha) property. Located just 3 minutes in-off the Bruce Highway in Scotchy Pocket, just 20 minutes North of Gympie.

Enjoy a peaceful lifestyle and comfortable living in this low-set family home that offers the perfect setting for relaxed country style living. The expansive 16m front and rear verandas are a very inviting space providing the ideal spot for entertaining and soaking in picturesque views whilst inhaling the fresh country air. Inside the home features a u-shaped kitchen with an electric upright stove making easy catering, centrally located between the veranda and dining room. There is a large air-conditioned lounge which leads out onto the front veranda and a second sitting area nearby which could also be utilised as an office if need be. Four carpeted bedrooms are placed to one end of the home, of which three contain air conditioning, while two include built-in wardrobes. The bathroom is conveniently located near the bedrooms and features a shower over bath and a single vanity. A large internal laundry and a separate toilet are easily accessed from the back veranda while fly screens on all the windows and doors ensure comfort and security along with a family-sized electric hot water system for convenience.

Outside you are sure to be impressed stepping into your own private mango and citrus orchard, complete with dripper irrigation for each of the 55 fruit trees including but not limited to: mango, mulberry, macadamia, banana, dragon fruit, grapefruit, olive, apple, avocado, loquat, orange, mandarin, lemon, lime, kaffir lime, lemonade, guava, cumquat and jaboticaba—you'll certainly have a diverse range of fruits at your fingertips! The orchard is also thoughtfully fenced with wire netting to keep your free-roaming chickens in check whilst they continually fertilise the orchard as they meander around. A dedicated chicken coop ensures a fresh supply of eggs daily.

Further infrastructure includes a 9x6m lockable, 3-bay zincalume shed with concrete flooring, a two-bay, high-clearance shade shelter and two-bay carport providing ample space for all your machinery and vehicles. Portable cattle yards with a crush and loading ramp are ideal for managing any livestock, with the property capable of carrying 9 head with progeny in the right conditions. The land is divided into two separate rhodes grass paddocks, with a versatile 17-acre flat, rich in alluvial soils which could be used for an array of agricultural pursuits.

Water is secured by two dams, plus a deep lagoon with an excellent catchment area while three 5,000-gallon tanks store rainwater to the home. Provisions are also set in place to pump/transfer water from the back lagoon to the front dams should you ever need.

This prime rural property enjoys double bitumen road frontage and is just a short drive to Gunalda, where you'll find a local primary school, shop, bakery and pub. For additional amenities and services, Gympie is only a 20-minute drive to the south, offering a range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options with the Sunny Coast and Brisbane less than 2 hours away.
