Murrun (circa 1900) - Maroon, Scenic Rim, South East Queensland
Murrun is a 205 acre productive cattle grazing property with a lovely restored original Queenslander located in a very special and most attractive part of the Scenic Rim.
Sited at Maroon and only 90 minutes from Brisbane and under an hour to Ipswich.
Murrun's lovely homestead and well grassed paddocks are located in the heart of the Scenic Rim. This is a beautiful region with incredible mountain views in all directions, no less so that at Murrun's homestead. The views are of the spectacular mountain rugged peaks and escarpments of Mt Barney (Queensland's second highest mountain), Mt Maroon and Mt May, which all form part of World Heritage Listed Mt Barney National Park, a designated wilderness zone. The two nearby dams (Lake Moogerah and Lake Maroon) are havens for water sport and fishing enthusiasts. The nearby town of Boonah is the centre of a thriving farming community and really buzzes, especially with its historic pubs, sidewalk cafes, four schools, pre-school, banks, churches, numerous shops and hospital.
The 83.3 hectare farm can be operated by one person. It has approximately 1.2 kilometres of double frontage to a permanent creek which bisects the property, Stockyard Creek, and has a large dam. The property is ex-dairy country and is a combination of fertile creek flats with rich black soil and undulating forest grazing land.
The circa 1900 homestead was tastefully restored and extensively renovated by the current owner only last year. It is very private and offers spectacular views is all directions. The 3 bedroom home is packed with original features including French doors, leadlight windows, polished wide timber floors, antique parquetry floors, pressed metal ceilings and high ceilings.
The fixtures and vanities in the 2.5 bathrooms are superb. There are three wide verandahs which allow covered outdoor living to the north, south, east and west all with those special views. The large country style eat in kitchen has a new Ilve 5 burner cooktop with Teppanyaki plate and gas stove. The new Esse Ironhart wood stove is ideal for cooking as well as warming the home in winter. Three large water tanks comfortable service the house.
Other improvements include a new four door shed with slab, generator shed and cattle yards with loading ramp.
The owner had planned to retire here, however her plans regrettably have changed and has made clear instructions to have the property sold now.
