Rural homestead is stunning

MAGNIFICENT is an understatement.

This stunning rural homestead with wraparound verandas is set on 60 hectares and is only 20 minutes from Ipswich and Kenmore.

It was built as an Arabian horse stud farm and has all the necessary features such as stables, grassed foal yard, tack room, feed shed, horse float bay and a 15m round yard to suit the most discerning of equine enthusiasts.

The property boasts a huge 15m x 12m shed with its own bathroom and laundry facilities and roller door that will house the biggest boy's toys and farm equipment you own.

There are 17 fenced paddocks and plentiful water supplied to home, stables and shed.

The homestead is a huge five-bedroom home with both the master and a second bedroom having ensuites.

All bedrooms open on to the massive wraparound deck which overlooks an impressive saltwater pool.

The kitchen would be a delight for any chef thanks to the gas cooktop, dishwasher, a huge eating bar and a butler's pantry that will also house any small appliances.

This area overlooks the open plan formal dining and casual lounge area, with the central focus on a big open fireplace.

It also leads to the decked pool and entertainment pergola, making it perfect for any season.

There is an additional movie room, lounge or children's retreat at the opposite end of the home.

The master suite is separate from the remaining bedrooms and has an impressive ensuite with spa and a massive walk-in wardrobe. Three of the other bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, while the fifth bedroom has its own sliding door entry and can be used as a study or toy room.
