Seeking a positive lifestyle change? Then look no further than this magnificent Capricorn Coast hinterland hideaway. Set high on the side of Mt Barmoya, yet only eight km from the sea, it offers amazing panoramic views that stretch almost 180 degrees from Great Keppel Island, to Curtis Island and Mt Larcom in the far distance, and around to Mt Archer above Rockhampton. In the near distance are Yeppoon CBD, Rosslyn Bay, Mt Wheeler and Mt Jim Crow. This rare piece of paradise includes a large, lowset brick home set on a hectare of orchard, landscaped gardens and natural bushland.
Imagine having your morning coffee on the expansive veranda as the rising sun creeps over the Pacific Ocean and Yeppoon town. Or you might wake instead to a valley of ocean-like fog stretching out to sea and inland, reducing Mt Wheeler itself to an island. Or enjoy an evening drink as the last of the setting sun rests on, and highlights for you the rocky heights of Rosslyn Bay and The Bluff. Here, you are living in another world – in fact a different world each day.
Almost completely renovated in the last five years, the solid metal-framed house offers two enormous, but quite separate air conditioned living spaces. One, a suitable parents’ retreat or study area, has four bedrooms leading from it, including a master bedroom with attached ensuite and walk-in-robe, and three roomy bedrooms with built-in robes. The second large living space, connected to both the dining room and large kitchen, is ideal for entertaining. The laundry and bathroom (bath and large shower) and separate toilet are approached from the central hall. All floors are of maintenance-free polished cement, and eight large glass sliding doors give easy access to the wide veranda and terrace garden, keeping the interior bright yet cool, and allowing most views to be enjoyed equally from inside the home. The house is supplied with both rainwater and potable bore water.
The modern fully equipped kitchen runs the full width of the house and features an appliance cupboard and bench with concertina doors, and considerable other cabinetry and pantry space. A well-windowed dinette, at the ocean end of the kitchen is perfectly placed to take in that sunrise over breakfast.
Other features include:
• Easy access to main roads (Rockhampton airport only 40 min.)
• 6m x 6m open bay shed for cars, a smaller general storage shed
• Rainwater tanks
• New bore pump
• Orchard of mango, jackfruit, star-fruit, lychee, lemon and guava trees
• Rich soil vegetable garden
• Pergola with ever-fruiting passionfruit vines
• Interesting and extensive animal and bird life
• Bush walking tracks with access to the wet season waterfall.
If you desire an inspiring, yet tranquil lifestyle on Queensland’s beautiful Capricorn Coast, make sure to inspect this slice of paradise. It will not disappoint.
