Bidding for rural retreat to start from low $200,000s
ABOUT 32 hectares of rural heaven and the majestic beauty of the Great Dividing Range awaits a bidder with a vision.
The Yuggera property at Rosevale is set to go under the hammer next month, representing a fine opportunity for anyone looking to build a home with a dream view.
Ray White Rural agent Barry Quinn said the property sat on top of a picturesque ridge, about a 30-minute drive south-west of Ipswich.
"It is an extremely pretty site - the view of the escarpment is spectacular," Mr Quinn said.
"The owner, Alana Bolger, has owned it for 10 years and had planned to build a house and live there ... but her plans have changed.
"It has the perfect site for a house to be built - a relatively flat area with a view right around."

The property, which is named after one of the Aboriginal tribes native to the Ipswich area, is fully fenced on all sides with four-strand barbed wire.
It is predominantly cleared, with some pockets of trees remaining.
There is a small dam and a bore and the undulating native grassland is capable of holding a few cattle.
Power to Yuggera is not far away, as there are two powered homes at the adjacent properties.
The historic Rosevale Retreat Hotel is just a few minutes down the road, while Rosewood is about a 25-minute drive away.
Despite the quality of the location, Yuggera might not be so out of reach to the average bidder.
Mr Quinn said bidding was expected to start from the low $200,000s.
The property is for sale now, with an auction scheduled for Friday, September 5.
