Thornbury Estate is a property dominated by quality - From the rich soils of the rolling pastures to the pathways of granite leading you on a journey through roses, lavender and ponds of the gardens. The cavity home features country living in a modern twist of yesteryear.

Pastures of Kikuyu with Fescues, Rye and clover cover the entire Thornberry Estate. Although only 52.35 Hectares (130 acres) the property was treated as a blank canvass with economic viability and carrying capacity thought out in 15 specifically designed cell paddocks with central watering points. All paddocks can utilise the laneway system to feed back to the cattleyards.

The property is located just 18km from Stanthorpe and 70km from Warwick near the peaceful country village of Liston. Liston is a quiet, rural community with the benefit of being only 15 minutes drive to Stanthorpe. It is close to natural features such as Rivertree, Undercliffe Falls, and Bald Rock National Park to the south.

The craftsman built cavity brick residence although possessing old world charm is only 5 years old. Built in sandstone style the charm from the exterior is well joined by the delightful and extensive gardens in which the homestead is sited. Paved pathways lead you on a journey through roses and lavender interspersed with conifers and hedges. Granite floored pergodas, fountains, ponds and ornamental trees all exibite in these master planned gardens

The home is a meandering 320sqm. The main entrance hall opens in 3 directions - Living areas, bedrooms and master suite. There are 4 bedrooms, all king size offering differing aspects from each room. The guest wing has one ensuited bedroom adjoining a private study. 2 other bedrooms open onto the front verandah through french doors . The master as expected offers stunning vistas across the majority of the property, large dressing room and ensuite and as with the main living areas, perfect North East aspect. Gazing up you walk toward the living areas and will see the raw timber trusses in the lounge and kitchen rising with the pitch of the roof. The large open fire place is complemented by underfloor heating throughout the whole house keeping you warm all winter.

The property itself is rich with pasture and is extremely well fenced with 6 barb boundary and electric internal fences.

Thornbury considered by many to be one of the finest properties of its type in Australia. This is a genuine sale in the current market
