    "Avoca Downs" Tarome via Aratula


      BIDDING REACHED $550,000

      Divorce in the short term rarely produces anything positive but it certainly will for the fortunate new owners of "Avoca Downs". This property is ideally suited for first time buyers seeking a nice inexpensive country weekender, whether they are families or empty nesters. "Avoca Downs", located within a stunning environment just over an hour from Brisbane, was never meant for the market but reluctantly it is and with all the furniture now gone a cut and run sale cannot come fast enough for the owners.

      The 30.24 acre (12.24ha) private property which overlooks the beautiful neighbouring 30 acre dam, simply offers a wonderful country lifestyle with rural and mountain outlooks as good as anywhere south east Queensland has to offer. Sited on a level rise high above sea level in the Scenic Rim Shire, the fertile all cleared property provides 360 degree vistas encompassing landmark mountains near and far, rolling green hills and soft surrounding farmlands. The World Heritage Goomburra National Park with its striking escarpments is just 'touching distance' away. "Avoca Downs" truly is a place to just peacefully enjoy with yourselves or the family or impress and entertain friends in comfort.

      The 5 year old home, constructed of sandstone brick on an elevated concrete slab with wrap around verandahs on 3 sides, has 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and was built with sympathy for the beautiful surrounding environment firmly in mind. Designed for easy relaxed family living, the rooms are generous in size with the expanses of glass bringing the outside inside. The bi-fold timber doors are the feature of the internal living areas and lead straight onto the timber verandah. This large verandah faces east, can seat 40 for a meal under cover and offers sensational views over the dam and onwards to Mount Greville. This dam is home to large numbers of bird varieties, including black swans and pelicans.

      The spacious kitchen is noteworthy for the New Guinea Rosewood cabinets, the European appliances including the extra wide 900mm Ilve stove and offers a servery directly to the verandah. The entire home has full ducted air-conditioning.

      Other improvements include a modern 4 car garage, 12m2 horse yards with automatic water, quality as new fencing and gates and established gardens and trees. Water is a real feature with 40,000 litres of rainwater storage servicing the home, shed and home surrounds via the high quality pump and sterilizer. In addition there is an excellent bore, that when equipped, produces 1,500 gallons an hour.

      Community and quality facilities are both nearby. Aratula is 10 minutes down the road and thriving Boonah, a business and government hub with numerous shops, schools and quality cafes, along with a hospital is just a 25 minute drive.

      Inspections are by appointment. The owners have appointed Barry Quinn (0409 828 342) from Ray White Rural Brisbane to market and dispose of "Avoca Downs".
