The house, situated on 5 acres with views of the state forest, is solid brick and was originally a large double garage converted into a cottage with a second floor bedroom and artist studio. Property is located only a few minutes from Blackbutt central on a sealed road for easy access to fuel and groceries. It is a peaceful and private place to live with lots of local wildlife while still being close to all amenities.
The house contains:
A basic kitchen with gas stove, electric hot water, ample power points & lighting.
Recently installed R/C air conditioning and a pot belly heater for summer & winter comfort.
A fixed hardwood ladder leads to the upstairs bedroom/studio.
A walkway from the rear entry door leads to the external bathroom which is weather sealed and has a window overlooking the property.
Ample water tanks and a system of reticulation provides the house, external bathroom, and gardens with rain water. Secondary water comes from the Benarkin Spring and is transported by supplied water cube.
A shipping container and a new small shed constructed of iron, timber & brick is used for storage.
The soil is rich in nutrients and is a composition of volcanic soils and top soils suitable for small cropping.
An earth dam has been installed during the last 12 months.
At the rear of the house a canopy of large trees provides ample shade on a level site.
This property is only 2 hours drive from Brisbane & the Sunshine Coast. Great weekender or peaceful place to live. Lots of opportunity for growing gardens/crops.
