Property

Wild horses could never drag you away from Eumundi address

THIS brilliantly appointed property has already been privy to the birth of one horse. It is so well set up you could almost set a movie here.

National Velvet? The Horse Whisperer?

The choice is yours.

There have been significant improvements in the house and property over the past four years, including a new dam and drainage, three bridges and extensive landscaping.

The contemporary home's original design and newer extensions have all been created by the expert touch of Stephen Kidd.

Curved timber feature walls greet you in the cool entry foyer. Polished concrete floors are cool underfoot. An office on the right looks out over the back of the property and paddocks.

Soaring ceilings enhance the space, filled with natural light from a high void.

Timber veneer cabinetry was the last of its kind in Australia. There are no more like it in existence.

Split face tiles surround the fireplace in the lounge, giving a dappled sandstone effect. Look out through wall-to-wall louvred windows to the 4500 timber cabinet timber plantation alongside the gated entry drive.

These have all been planted across the back and towards the gully, so there is never any shortage of hardwood for a roaring fire.

Follow 20m of glass doors and louvred windows across to the kitchen and living zone.

You could easily entertain a couple of hundred people here.

The interior opens effortlessly out to the covered alfresco deck. Water and land merge into one with a 20m wet-edge lap pool and spring-fed fully-stocked dam.

The dressage arena, paddocks and stables perch on the crest toward the perimeter.

A new hill rolls down to a fire pit at the left of the dam. It's a great spot to kick the footy around with the kids, roast marshmallows, or lounge about with an afternoon picnic.

Stride your way up to the dressage arena, filled with Mary River sand. Polvin fencing is all electrified.

Horses can be moved through the paddocks with ease, depending on conditions. Courtesy of landscaping, one paddock is always dry so they will not get seedy toe.

The stable has its own tank, and the trough is plumbed from the house so stock will never run out of water.

Feed can be delivered directly to a lockable feed room with rear access. There is 1500m of invisible electric fencing for dogs. It's a very functional set-up, and easy to care for.

Originally owned by a renowned Noosa chef, the heart of the home is its commercial-grade kitchen with marble benches, a separate cold room and walk-in pantry.

Industrial-style Zanussi fittings include an icemaker, commercial deep fryer, teppanyaki grill and Salamander heater.

The main bathroom has a sunken bath submerged in shimmering mosaic tiles.

A floor-to-ceiling glass door opens out to the barbecue area, with a stainless steel pizza oven from Western Australia.

All additional bedrooms and bathrooms are situated in the left wing, with an entertainment zone and kitchenette.

Whoever is lucky enough to sleep in the furthest bedroom has one of the best views in the house. Gaze out to the bordering national park and separate artist's studio in the far paddock.

Drawing a line from north to south across the boundary, you pick up around 100m of greenery before you hit the forest itself.

Another fenced paddock in the south-west corner has direct access to the forest with dedicated riding trails.

You could keep horses or stock here while on holiday and nobody would know.

It's a 65m distance back to the master suite in the opposite wing. Glass doors open out to a deck at the fore with private spa and outlook over the grounds.

A large ensuite offers twin basins, twin shower, and a walk-through dressing area.

It's not often you find a property that feels this much like a home. There's parts of it you would never be able to replicate elsewhere.

You could be anywhere in Australia with privacy like this. Yet you're only seven minutes away from St Andrew's College, and a short 12 minute drive is all that's needed to take you to Peregian Beach.
