Almost 2 Acres 10 Minutes From Broadbeach.

There are very few, in any, properties in the heart of the Gold Coast that possess the unique combined features and heritage of Braeside. In brief, Braeside is a beautiful acreage property with a restored original 113 year old farmhouse, with guest accommodation and an authentic replication of an older-style chapel, surrounded with ancient trees and landscaped lawns all just ten minutes from the surf at Broadbeach. The owner's firm decision to move on' now gives a wonderful opportunity to new owners to become part of historic Braeside.

With extensive frontage to Gooding Drive, sited on the eastern side of the Motorway and bordering the world class Jack Nicklaus Signature Lakelands Golf Club, Braeside has a location the envy of most. The property is fenced on 3 sides and has 150 metres of wide creek frontage. The 7,177 square metre or almost 2 acre property is literally surrounded by some of largest amount of growth the entire Gold Coast has experience in the last ten years. Obviously any future development will be subject to the new owners obtaining the relevant council approvals but there is no doubt the potential is there.

The farmhouse was built in 1897 from local timber cut and floated down the Nerang River. Polished timber floors are a feature as are the traditional hallway and verandah, built to allow cool flowing breezes to the 3 bedrooms. There is fully ducted air- conditioning. Water is a real feature of this acreage property with town water connected, along with a large underground tank and unlimited pure spring water from the bore. The separate guest accommodation or office / retreat building has timber floors, air conditioning and screens.

Unique to Braeside is the chapel, with the spotted gum timber floors, antique lead-light windows, air-conditioning and built-in sound system. The chapel seats 90 and is approved for its current use as a Wedding Chapel. Importantly this has proved an excellent income source for the current owners over the last decade, and with the continued growth of this industry on the Gold Coast will allow the new owners this same opportunity, if desired. Alternatively the chapel would also be ideal as office- space or other business.

The large mature trees, gardens and huge landscaped lawn area, fantastic for young and older children alike, is what sets the ambience Braeside is known for truly a peaceful setting with it's surrounding wildlife and fauna.

Braeside unites country charm acreage with history mere minutes from the idyllic lifestyle and business centres of the Gold Coast. A well-loved and easily maintained residence with superb location and income prospects.

Offered for genuine sale.

The owners have appointed Barry Quinn (0409 828 342) and Peter Douglas (0407 172 101) from Ray White Rural Brisbane to market and sell the property.
