Modern, spacious, 8 year-old master built home on 10 acres of your own botanical gardens. Situated 30 minutes from bustling Hervey Bay (with all major retailers and services), 5 minutes from the historic, self-contained village of Howard, and just 15 minutes to the beautiful ocean beaches at Burrum Heads. And for golfers, Burrum District Golf Club is within easy walking distance of the property.
The house is currently configured with 4 bedrooms, including a luxury sized master with retreat area, double shower ensuite and huge walk in robe, good sized main bathroom, separate laundry, a huge open kitchen/formal dining/breakfast nook, 2 large living areas (one formal), separate library, office, walk in linen, and alfresco dining area with covered verandah and orchid house attached. It could be easily reconfigured to 6 bedrooms if required.
It boasts all the luxury features, including ducted air-conditioning, quality ceiling fans, 2.7 metre ceilings, a chef’s kitchen with huge benchtop areas, 900mm Bompani oven/5 burner gas cooktop, and a large butler’s pantry with appliances bench. The house is fully insulated with security grill insect screens.
The landscaping is breathtaking, with rolling lawns, fruit orchids (dragon fruits, citrus, apples, avocados, nuts etc), exotic flowering trees, your own personal, small rainforest with brick paths and benches, and a shaded picnic area, flanked by garden beds, at the edge of the main dam. Two rose gardens, and a large cultivated vegetable area with a nursery shade-house complete the picture.
Storage is plentiful, with a huge 12mx9m garage fitted with remote controlled doors that can accommodate multiple cars, trailers etc, a 9m x 6m shed with two roller doors for tools and mowers, a smaller garden shed, and a generous chicken shed which can be shut tight at night.
The property is fully fenced (dog proof) and flood free. Water is harvested from every available roof and stored in 7 water tanks holding 67,500 litres for the house, and around 58,000 litres for the gardens. These, together with a bore and 5 dams connected to electric pumps and hundreds of metres of piping, ensure absolute water security. There is also a 22 panel solar system, a SolarHart hot water service, and a Taylex waste management system.
Annual rates $1501. Quarterly electricity around $50
A must to inspect if you aspire to one of the best and affordable lifestyles Australia has to offer.
