A gracious and beautiful property retaining all things grand and eloquent of an era gone by situated in the heart of Gympie’s tourist drive on 2.47 acres (1ha). Steeped in history the 4 bedroom homestead was built in 1897 at the height of the Gold Rush and is testament to the grand designs of country estates of that time. Manicured lawns, beautiful trees and landscaped gardens provide the perfect backdrop for the home and numerous historic outbuildings located on the property. Adjacent to the house yard is a fully fenced pine tree plantation, offering a private forest sanctuary and income potential from the millable timber. Naturally divided into 3 portions and perfect for subdivision into at least 3 lots if not more (STCA), the 2.47acres includes the homestead and sheds, the fully fenced pine tree plantation and a separate portion of vacant land extending to the other side of the railway with its own street frontage.

Signature features of the residence include stunning stain glass windows, beautiful floor to ceiling french doors, hardwood timber floors throughout and a magnificent central hallway stretching from front to rear of the home. Soaring ceilings, ornate fretwork and traditional timber arches lead to the 4 bedrooms, expansive living areas and original kitchen complete with wood fired heater at the rear of the home. The beautiful country style bathroom as well as a separate toilet are centrally located yet tucked away down a private hallway between the bedrooms.
The oversized main bedroom features stunning casement windows and hardwood timber built-ins. Wide verandahs on 3 sides capture cool breezes and spectacular views over the countryside and provide additional living spaces including an enclosed verandah at the front perfect for guest accommodation, office or separate retreat.

The historic outbuildings of the property all in good condition include 3 original stables complete with 3 phase power, shelving and tack rooms with 2 stables converted to provide double lockup car accommodation plus garden shed. There is an original blacksmith’s shop 5m x 9m towards the rear and a large 8m x 5m high set shed with timber floors and front porch previously used to display arts and crafts and pottery items. To the side is another small shed complete with concrete floors and power with separate cow bail and milking bay for a house cow. Located near the home and in excellent condition is the original washhouse complete with copper facility and concrete floors currently used for storage.

The new owners of this unique property will be spoilt for choice with multiple opportunities to retain the original features and/or subdivide and develop (STCA). This magnificent property captures the charm and essence of a traditional country estate with beautiful grounds and multiple historic features combined with the huge unlocked potential in the size, location and quality of the land rarely found.
