Lodge / Large home / Farming / Extended family – Endless possibilities
Acreage Semi-rural Sold - MAPLETON QLD
This 13.8ha (34 acres) property is nestled between the Mapleton National Park and borders the Mapleton Falls National Park. It has so much to offer and so many options. Whether you have an ultra-large family or multiple generations who want to live together or maybe you are looking for a tree-change and want to live in the Hinterland and manage a lodge, 6 Daymar Road has got it all covered.
When entering the property, you are met with views of 5 acres of landscaped gardens around three separate dwellings. Ancient trees are scattered throughout and further down the property, you’ll find two dams, one of which is spring fed. However, there is also a borehole and water caught from the roof can be stored in the water tanks that hold 80,000l and are strategically positioned around the property.
This property comes with some amazing ingenuity. Firstly, the two main water tanks have been placed at the top of the property allowing for high pressure water to feed the dwellings. The second amazing set-up is that each dwelling has its own instant gas water heating and is independent of electricity. When you put the two together, what you have is an almost unlimited supply of water that can be heated, all without electricity.
A walk around this acreage will take your breath away, literally and figuratively :0) There are also numerous fruit trees and several beautiful big avocado trees. At the very end of the property is the most magnificent view of the Obi Obi Gorge and it quite literally, will take your breath away.
Currently, the property is being run as a highly rated guest lodge and offers 3 suites in the main building, one of which is completely self-contained. There is a fully renovated, self-contained cottage, separate from the main building and another cottage, to be completed, which will also offer a separate, self-contained dwelling. In the main building the owners have use of 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a large sunny lounge and private verandah. As the property is a lodge, meals are prepared in the commercial kitchen which could potentially serve a restaurant if that were something you were considering.
The kitchen leads into a large open plan dining and cozy lounge area before separating into the various guest suites. Another lounge offers more space and privacy and there is yet another large room which could be used for a wide variety of purposes. Each room offers an ensuite and the largest of these also has its own lounge and kitchen. The design of this home and the breezes blowing in from the hills keeps the property at the perfect temperature all day long.
This property can be set up in several different ways to cater for your specific requirements. Some of which are:
GUEST LODGE – the lodge comes fully furnished, includes all linen and everything you need to move in tomorrow and continue running the lodge. The owners believe it could double its turnover with enough effort and there is potential for a further 6 more cottages or glamping sites (subject to council approval) if you want to grow the lodge even further. They have established a successful and repeat client business receiving great reviews from visitors. The owners have indicated they would be more than willing to help with a smooth handover/takeover.
LARGE FAMILY – The property offers a potential 9 bedrooms, 7 lounges and 4 kitchens. If your family is bigger than this, there is plenty of space to build.
GENERATIONAL FAMILY LIVING TOGETHER – The main building can accommodate 2 families and each of the cottages can be utilized offering space for parents, grown kids and possibly even uncles and aunties.
FARMING – The substantial amount of land offers the ability to do some sort of farming, be it grazing, fruit trees or even vegetables and there is no shortage of the most important ingredient when it comes to farming… Water!
This is a must-see property if you love the hinterland but enjoy the comforts of the city too. Only 5 minutes into Mapleton and 36 minutes’ drive to Maroochydore and 30 minutes to the Sunshine Coast Airport. The owners are reluctant to sell but are retiring and need to downsize so this beautiful gem-of-an-acreage is now on the market. Do not miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.
PS, if you are coming to look, bring your walking shoes so you can get a good feel for the property.
