This Classic Pole home was built 16 years ago, to take full advantage of the stunning northerly outlook.
Permaculture principals were incorporated into the design to ensure shade in summer and warm sun in winter, on the extensive verandas overlooking the magnificent view of Mt Cooroora.
Set high in the foothills, the open-plan living area has raked ceilings and a glass wall with three pairs of French Doors opening onto the veranda, designed to capture the summer breezes. With the centrally located combustion fireplace this is an easy house to warm and cool. Both double bedrooms and the living area also have air-conditioning, and there are ceiling fans throughout.
The main bedroom has French doors opening on to an east-facing deck, with a large walk-in robe.
There is also a lovely room with raked ceilings, wonderful sunset views and double concertina doors opening on to the living area, which would be ideal as creative studio space, or as a third bedroom.
Downstairs is a private retreat comprising a double bedroom with ensuite, study, walk in robe and a gas operated Cedar Hot-Tub set into the secluded lower deck, again with magnificent views of the mountain.
Beautiful timber floors throughout provide a comfortable and easy surface to clean.
12 Solar Panels deliver economic power, and ample firewood comes off the property.
The huge 10,000 litre tank has recently been re-lined, and has never run dry -- the water is sweet, natural and free.
This 2.3 hectare property has been divided into 3 'zones' -- around the house is an easy living area, with a small orchard, 2 car carport, and circular driveway. Three well-fenced stock paddocks and 2 sheds are suited to keeping Alpacas, Goats or Horses. A third shed and carport house mowing and farming equipment.
The second 'zone' was planted out as a Farm Forest twenty years ago and is now a mature native forest.
Past the forest, at the bottom of the hill, is a meandering creek which feeds into Skyring Creek and the Mary River.
Zone 3 is beyond this creek, a steep climb up to Enchelmeir's Road which is the Western border of the property.
Part of this area, in conjunction with the neighbouring property, was used as a quarry during the 1930s Bruce Highway construction, and now has some significant forest re-growth which has been formally recognised as 'Land for Wildlife.'
This area is also designated as part of the Mary River Catchment Area, and so will never be developed.
The Property is 3 km from the charming hinterland town of Pomona, 10 km from Cooroy and a half-hour drive to Noosa, Nambour and Gympie. It is in an exceedingly private and secluded setting, with access via a 100m sealed easement to Pomona-Connection Rd.
