For those still considering a tree change, this property sitting atop beloved Tamborine Mountain in Queensland might be the final nudge.
On the market for the first time in 15 years and with breathtaking 180-degree views that sweep from the Canungra valley to the Great Dividing Range, this 43-acre parcel of land is a truly special offering with not one, but two gorgeous homes.
The grand country estate is one of nine in an idyllic enclave of acreage properties ranging in size from nine to 90 acres.
Originally part of a thoroughbred stud farm and now exclusively for private rural residential use, the individual residences – considered some of the “most prestigious” on the mountain – are generously distanced from each other with the whole enclave well-separated from other residential properties on Tamborine.
Drive along a private road through a small stand of rainforest and adjoining National Parkland to reach the gorgeous compound known as Cedar Lodge Retreat.
The homes, on handpicked dual titles, have been strategically located to maximise the glorious, awe-inspiring views.
“Every day you will feel like the last on earth to see the sun as it falls behind the ranges, displaying colours and visual tones which need to be seen to be believed,” the listing says.
The main five-bedroom residence sits on 20 acres and was originally built in 1974 by local craftsmen. Over the years, it has been lovingly transformed, finally being completed in 2010 by the current owners, who oversaw a timeless renovation.
Pitched rooflines, brick work, aged beams, fireplaces and bifold doors that open to the incredible views are all found in the home, in addition to a large entertaining balcony suspended over the home’s own private lake.
This property also has its own tennis court, a large basement wine cellar and an entire top-floor primary suite.
Also of note is ‘The Outlook Bar’ with vaulted ceilings and a slow combustion fireplace, fully equipped with three keg fridges with taps built into the top of the bar and a display fridge. It has private side access separate to the home with asphalt parking for 20+ guests.
There are two fully fenced stables and tack room, huge storage sheds plus timber stockyards with loading ramp. Bore water is plumbed to house, stables and sheds.
The second residence is an architecturally designed four-bed, three bath contemporary on 23 acres, overlooking rolling green pastures and the property’s massive lake.
Through a grand entrance portico you’ll find cathedral ceilings, exposed timber beams, a farm-style laundry and an outlook that enjoys all-day sun. Similarly to the main home, this also has a sprawling primary suite.
There’s a workshop, huge landscaped spring-fed dam, fully operational bore and 44,000 litres of water storage.
“This home would perfectly suit multiple generational families, caretakers, [as a] separate income stream, or simply somewhere to stay if the main residence was used for functions or bookings,” the listing suggests.
It also mentions that the second home is completely council approved and on its own title, so buyers do have the option to on sell at a later date.
Between the two properties there are approximately 35 acres, providing ample opportunity for any livestock pursuit.
