Valley villa has views to die for
A 20-HECTARE property with an almost new house perched in the stunning Mulgowie Valley is ready to go under the hammer.
"Springwater" is on the market after owner Lachy Brown decided to purchase a large grazing property.
Mr Brown built a Bali-inspired house on the land in 2014.
The spacious house has a modern look but uses materials taken from a historic timber bridge in Ipswich.
From the open deck area, it boasts views of the Great Dividing Range, including Mt Castle and Mt Mistake.
The Mulgowie Valley ends where the Little Liverpool Range meets the spectacular mountain peaks and escarpments of World Heritage Listed Main Range National Park.
The valley is fertile and renowned for its high rainfall.
Ray White Rural agent Barry Quinn said the property, which was accessed by sealed road, had approximately 450m of creek frontage, fed from the nearby mountains.
"The predominately undulating country consists of dark fertile soils which assist greatly both with grazing cattle and the approximately 200 mature and productive mango trees," Mr Quinn said.
"There is also cleared acreage on the creek flats.
"Three surface springs run year round through the property and ensure the large main dam and second stock dam are continuously fed."
Architecturally inspired, the house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study. It features energy efficient glass, 136mm blackbutt floors and marine grade ply timber raked ceilings. The large outdoor covered deck is most noteworthy due to the huge 300x300mm solid recycled timber posts and beams with original rustic bolts, secured from an old bridge in Ipswich.
The auction for "Springwater" is scheduled 10.30am, Friday March 11, at the Level 26, 'One One One', 111 Eagle Street, Brisbane.
