Common sense tells you it would be impossible to find a lovely 40 acre property ideally suited for a family just 35 minutes from the Brisbane CBD. However "Windwhistle" at Camp Mountain, the closest rural acreage to Brisbane and overlooking the beautiful Samford Valley is just that but a whole lot more. Located in the most sought after part of Samford Valley, "Windwhistle" is surrounded by large acreage properties. Unsurprisingly only a select few of these have changed hands in the last 30 years. Importantly the entire property has the ideal northerly aspect, is peacefully quiet and offers beautiful rural views, predominantly of the D'Aguilar Range National Park including Mount O'Reilly, House Mountain Range and Mount Glorious. Also noteworthy Ferny Grove City Train Station is a 10 minute drive.
The land is rich black topsoil and has extensive areas of cleared well grassed paddocks. There is an attractive dam and the seasonal creek runs the length of the property, including through a pocket of remnant rainforest. In addition the property has an excellent water supply for both a large family and any stock in all seasons.
The four bedroom home was designed firmly with the family, entertaining and the lovely views in mind. Constructed of double brick and a steel frame, the large low set country residence' is in excellent condition with complete privacy from both the house and the extensive outdoor entertaining areas. The separate spacious living areas, the stunning slate floors and the beautiful Western Red Cedar throughout are just some of the homes features. The craftsman built new kitchen has stone bench tops and a separate meals area. The extensive outdoor areas are featured with brick and timber decking (being a combination of quila and gum) and a beautiful large leopard tree. The salt water pool is an ideal size for a family.
The recently resurfaced floodlit tennis court faces north/south.
Other features are the separate lockable barn which accommodates four vehicles plus storage, quality fencing and gates and the covered horse shelter with yards. Of real interest though, especially for special family get togethers or when entertaining, is the large country fire pit with rustic timber table and seating. Sited well away from the home and by a large Moreton Bay fig tree it really is near impossible to remember you're just 35 minutes from the CBD while you're camping on your own property.
Very importantly "Windwhistle" has one other key feature that cannot be expressed in words but only experienced by being on the property it exudes charm and simplicity.
After thirty years of idyllic country living, the owners have purchased in the inner city to be near their grandchildren. Their decision to sell "Windwhistle", named by the current owners after a country property in Scotland, now creates an unrivalled lifestyle opportunity for another family.
The property is scheduled to be auctioned on Friday May 4th at 10:30am at the 'Riverside Centre', 123 Eagle Street, Brisbane.
The owners have appointed Barry Quinn from Ray White Rural Brisbane to market and sell the property.
