Peace & Tranquility, Breathtaking Natural Beauty!

This ultra-cosy, charm-filled cottage tucked away amongst 12.16 acres of virgin forest in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, offers the opportunity to embrace a gentle, eco-friendly lifestyle off-the-grid in the most resplendent leafy setting – where your peace and harmony is maximised, and carbon footprint minimised.

The cottage itself is a rustic design that complements its natural surrounds and comprises a loft bedroom and ensuite, open plan living with fireplace, fully functional generous-sized kitchen with stacker servery windows to expansive covered deck overlooking forest, powder room/laundry combo, double bay workshop with roller doors, plus additional covered storage.

Designed for self-sustained living – features that enable this include .4kW solar power with 220 amp batteries (it’s a micro system with inverter to run tv, Foxtel and lights), gas hot water, gas cooking and gas fridge, 3 x water tanks with a total of 50,000-litre capacity, and a bioseptic system. There’s lush rich fertile soil to grow crops – including herbs, vegetables, and fruit trees; set up a chook pen and you can have fresh produce from garden to table.

The cottage is easily accessed from the road, and there is also a pathway down through the valley that leads to a potential house site, should you wish to build a second dwelling. The majority of the land is heavily treed; however, there is approximately two acres where you could run livestock, and there is a spring on the power easement, where one of the local creeks originate from.

Framed by majestic forest filled with an abundance of birdlife and wildlife, it is a veritable pocket of natural beauty that is truly breathtaking. You will feel a million miles from civilisation, and yet in actual fact, the major amenities of Nambour including hospitals, schools and rail to Brisbane is less than a 10 minute drive, Sunshine Coast Airport and Mudjimba Beach is 20 minutes, and it’s only 25 minutes to Maroochydore.

This could suit a number of buyers from the city-dweller looking for a hinterland weekender, a tree-changing single or couple, or even an acreage buyer looking to build – you can live in cottage whilst building and then rent it out for income stream.

Current owner built the cottage in 2014 and this is the first time offered to the market. If any of the above resonates, you won’t be alone – act immediately.
