Purchased 27 years ago by Patrick and Cynthia Knapp “The Limit” was a rundown farm located on one of the best pieces of land of its type in South East Queensland. Not only was the land perfect to build their family home but it was in the highly desirable Sunshine Coast hinterland town of Flaxton and the property is only 4km from the heart of Montville. The region is renowned for its beauty, stunning views, ideal climate, café’s, art galleries, cellar doors and is a popular weekend destination. It is only 1.5 hours from Brisbane and is only 35 minutes from the many Sunshine Coast Beaches.
The 9.73ha (24acre) property is situated on one of the highest points on the range at 440m above sea level and has approximately 10 acres of gently undulating land. This is incredibly rare and is what makes the property so special. Patrick and Cynthia set about the task of creating what became the exceptional property on offer today.
A very comfortable two bedroom cottage was built first and is ideal for family and guests. “The Limit” extends over 350m east from the road this gave the Knapp’s the ability to build in the middle of the property approximately 150m from the road providing complete privacy and stunning views of the entire Sunshine Coast and beyond. The quality home has been strategically built over the last 15 years with the final stage only completed 12 months ago.
The large rendered brick home exudes quality and has been designed to incorporate contemporary features while having a traditional feel. The house has been designed to take in the stunning views and provides many different spaces to take advantage of the stunning vistas. The executive home features expansive hard wood floors, soaring 14ft ceilings, huge living area and 4 ensuited bedrooms including a huge master suit. Other features are a chef’s kitchen, 10m x 10m family room, multiple decks and verandahs, bitumen driveway, air conditioned, 5kw solar and a 7m x 15m shed.
Rich soils support beautiful established gardens, magnificent trees and fruit trees including citrus and avocados. Throughout the rainforest, rock lined paths lead to several sitting areas for you to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the setting.
Given the growth in tourism for the area and the large useable plateau the current owners believe that there is a fantastic opportunity to develop the property for tourism subject to council approval. It was actually marketed as a tourist development when they purchased the property 27 years ago. Then again the new owners could do what they have, keep it for themselves, friend and family and enjoy every minute.
