Slice of paradise in the Granite Belt Wine Country
Here is a rare chance to purchase a slice of natural Australian bush in the heart of the granite belt wine country. This 37.31 ha property is situated in between award winning wineries, Symphony Hill and Twisted Gum and within minutes of Ballandean village with a primary school, general store, petrol station, pharmacy and the Ballandean Tavern. Ballandean, with it’s cellar doors, cafes, excellent restaurants, tourist attractions and National Parks is 20 minutes drive south of Stanthorpe.
The 350 m frontage to Eukey Road is relatively flat and partially cleared and in the past had been worked as a market garden. An all-weather road winds away from the road and rises for approximately 450 m away from the road to the site of the 2 bedroom weekender at a level of 950 m above sea level.
The “shack” was designed by celebrated Brisbane architect, Sean Lockyer, and the current owner, also an architect, has improved and extended the unique and comfortable weekender. It perches on the escarpment with magnificent 180 degrees views over Ballandean Station, Sundown National Park and north to Fletcher. A short bushwalk to the south and on to a massive granite rock you have elevated views over Girraween National Park. The property is virgin natural Australian bush with massive granite rock outcrops and is a bush walkers dream with an abundance of native wildflowers at all times of the year.
The shack has 2 bedrooms, living room with a fireplace, dining room, kitchen and large decks that take optimum advantage of the view. It is totally off-grid with solar electricity, battery storage bank, a back-up generator , 3200 litre rainwater tank and instant gas hot water system.
The property also boasts a great dam for swimming with a granite rock diving board and a 3.6 x 3.0m storage shed.
A unique opportunity like this is does not come along very often and has to be seen to be appreciated. You can just enjoy the privacy, views and peace and quiet, yet still be within minutes of local wineries, restaurants and surrounding National Parks.
