A very unique slice of Hinterland paradise has just come to market on the Sunshine Coast. It's size, privacy and location make this property a rare gem to be snapped up by the savvy buyer as the potentials are endless...

Situated in the beautiful Obi Obi valley, nestled just 10 minutes from the picturesque villages of Mapleton and Kenilworth, lies this 195-acre secluded sanctuary complete with rich history, waterfalls, rainforest and trails. The original homestead has plenty of space for a self sufficient lifestyle, with its 6-bed permaculture designed vegetable garden and 27 types of fruit and nut trees already grow in it's fertile soil. It has about 10 acres of grassy open spaces tastefully nestled amongst the gardens and a pebbled seasonal creek that runs along the whole valley floor. The rest is gorgeous rainforest with trails leading to your own private waterfall. Water is abundant; with 2 wells, 5 poly rainwater tanks and the torrential river that flows through the creek after a good rain. Its absolute privacy affords a wonderfully relaxing lifestyle, where you can meander along your own forest trails whilst listening to the birdsong and enjoying the diverse native wildlife that call this place home.

For the entrepreneur, this property would be ideal as an ecotourism venture or a tiny house community, perhaps a downhill mountain bike park or a very exclusive healing retreat. The possibilities are endless but one thing is for sure, this special property will appeal to tourists, families, environmentalists, off-gridders, community living, conservationists, yogis, permaculturalists, authors and artists to name a few. The property was already home to Buddhism on the Sunshine Coast in the 1970's, where it grew all the food for the community, hosted spiritual retreats and was a meditation mecca. The original pagoda remains.

For those seeking a tree change away from the busy city and have their children grow up amongst nature, the school bus picks up at the end of the road for both Mapleton State Primary and Maleny State High, making mornings a breeze. The house itself is nearly a 100 years old and in the style of a high-set Queensland farmhouse with plenty of potential to raise the house if a family needs more space. It has been lovingly restored, with key features from its past being retained to allow a mixture of modern amenities, and true country charm.

There are two main living areas. The traditional 'snug' has a wood combustion heater which keeps the house cozy in the winter and overlooks the house lawn and pretty springtime cottage garden beds, The second living area is an open plan family room that incorporates a new large country style eat-in kitchen, large reverse cycle air-conditioner and office nook.

There are three bedrooms plus a study and one shower room. The main bedroom overlooks a stunning Magnolia tree; a beautiful sight in the morning. The second bedroom is a double sized room with its polished hoop pine floors and ornate breezeway accentuating the traditional character of the house. The third bedroom is a large single room which overlooks the vast tropical house garden to the rear.

If you are ready for a change of pace and lifestyle without having to forfeit all the things you love about living on the Sunshine Coast, contact us to make a viewing appointment.
