Description


Impressive Home With Separate Guest House, Pool & Studio on 12,500 SQ.M. in Albany Creek’s Finest Cul-de-sac Adjoining Bunyaville State Forest

A very rare opportunity now exists to purchase this stately and spacious home on 12,500 sq.m. of prestigious blue-ribbon acreage in Albany Creek’s finest street, all adjoining the Bunyaville State Forest. This impressive property comprises of the grand main house, a separate two-level guest house and a lovely studio behind the pool area.

Coming home, you’ll drive into your street past many other amazing acreage properties, then at the far end of this prestigious cul-de-sac, enter your own circular driveway and either park in the triple garaging or pull up and park under the entry portico. Step into the entry foyer under the soaring cypress pine raked ceiling and onto beautiful parquetry timber floors. The huge formal lounge boasts a stunning chandelier over the room, beautiful built-in timber display cabinets line the far wall and a wide and inviting brick fireplace flickers in one corner of the room, providing warmth through the home. Ducted air-conditioning is also zoned throughout the main house for all year-round comfort. The parquetry floors lead from the lounge and the entry hall, through to the meals area and the enormous and classical Tasmanian Oak kitchen, once again under high, raked cypress ceilings with two large skylights providing lovely rays of natural light. The wide benchtop provides an abundance of preparation and serving space, and long banks of timber cupboards and drawers provide an abundance of storage space. Should you require even more storage, then there’s a large walk-in pantry suited for the largest family. This huge kitchen is perfect for preparing meals to be enjoyed in the adjoining formal dining room, spacious enough for the largest of dining tables.

The main house entry features a curved block wall on the left-hand side, leading to the bedroom wing with 9-foot ceilings throughout. Behind this wall, at the front of the home is the study, overlooking the driveway and cul-de-sac. Next, bedrooms 2 and 3 are both very spacious with ceiling fans and built-in robes. Nearby is the elegant and generously sized main bathroom. At the rear of the home, overlooking the lush green backyard, is the master-suite with its own lounge retreat area, an enormous walk-in robe and a classically appointed ensuite with a wide timber vanity, large shower and corner spa.

The main house connects to the guest house (or granny flat) via a gorgeous long alfresco area, boasting a timber lined high raked ceiling, right next to the sparkling in-ground pool. The pool has a bubble seat and a cascading water feature which you can enjoy whilst sunning yourself on your pool lounge, or for shade you can retire to the lounges in the stunning shingled Balinese hut.

The guest house (or granny flat) offers an enormous open plan rumpus and dining area next to the kitchenette / bar area. There’s a full 3rd bathroom (with shower) and laundry nearby. This area opens onto the 3-car garage, which has a tiled floor should you ever need even more undercover entertaining space. Upstairs in the guest house, there are two more large bedrooms (each with a built-in robe, a desk area and a sitting area) plus a great study area located between them at the top of the stairs.

Behind the pool area, there’s a great separate studio (approx. 4.5m x 3m in size) with power and lighting, and an adjoining storage shed of a similar size. The studio overlooks a wide spanning timber pedestrian bridge at the rear, crossing a deep creek-bed that often features running water from the forest. On the other side of the bridge, there’s well over two acres of your own natural tree-studded bushland abundant with beautiful birdlife. Around the dwellings, the grounds are well kept with expansive level areas of lush turf, tall exotic palms and groves of fruit trees.

There are too many other features to mention them all, including solid double-brick exterior construction, recently re-pointed tiled roof, plus security screens throughout.

Alpinia Court is lined with other million dollar plus properties and is well admired by locals as a very exclusive, desired and respected pocket. This exclusive acreage is only 15 km to the Brisbane CBD, a mere 850 metres to city buses, and under two kilometres to the Woolworths Shopping Centre and the Albany Hills State School. Inspections will be by prior appointment (to Len Worthington on 0402 297 355). This property is one of a kind, and sure to impress!

After retiring as a Major from the Army in 2000 (including service with the United Nations in Rwanda and Kenya, and postings to Royal Military College Duntroon and Enoggera Barracks), I began my real estate career. That was over 19 years ago, and during that time I have built several of my own properties in Eatons Hill, Albany Creek and Cashmere, renovated 2 other properties, and raised my 3 children (all at University) who attended local schools, sporting teams and were actively involved in the local community.
