Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: We purchased the property in 1980 and built the second house in 1996. After retiring in 2004 we started to garden around our original house and since 2005 have opended the 2 acre garden to the public to benefit the Australian Red Cross. In 2012 we decided to holiday let our second house as we love the area.

Why the Owner Chose Brisbane:
We present the house how we would like the house to be for our comfort. We travel a lot and understand what people would like if they come for a holiday. We bought the property originally because no trees had been cut down. It was a 'virgin' block. We have left it so and planted gardens around and amongst the trees.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A Home away from home with plenty of space and comfort for a family. It is being away from the 'madding crowd', concrete jungle and noise of a city and yet we are just 30 minutes away from Brisbane. The Birds and wild life love the area as much and we often see wallabies, kangaroos, possums and goannas.
