June 17, 2017Mrs Bennett said the couple had both lived in the home and rented it out while living in a neighbouring house, and listed a practical layout as one of the building’s drawcards.“It is a very large house on a small piece of land and features two outdoor balconies and very reasonably sized bedrooms,” she said.“If there is someone working in the kitchen, you can still be very involved in the life of the family because it is all open. “You can open the doors to the outdoor balcony which leads to the canal and all that is one open room – it’s just lovely.”The pair, who spent some time working in Papua New Guinea as fly-in, fly-out employees said the home’s easy upkeep would suit those working away or couples with demanding careers.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days ago“You don’t have great quantities of lawn to mow and gardens to look after but you feel you’re in a green tract,” Mr Bennett said.

Huge hinterland holding offered for the first time in a century

first_img The original brick homestead, once the Eden family home, remains on the property.The Eden family no longer live on the land, with a caretaker appointed and residing in the original homestead, a lowset brick home with four bedrooms.Mr Williams said a Town Planning report was being prepared on the land which is zoned both Rural and Rural Residential and encompasses 12 lots with 12 titles.The lots range in size from 1.445ha to 8.288ha with the holding being offered as a whole. “The potential uses could be associated with tourism or an eco type of use, subject to council approval,” Mr Williams said. “Alternatively, someone could come in and potentially utilise the existing 12 titles and sell them off individually. There aren’t many opportunities on Tamborine Mountain to do that.”Tamborine Mountain is a popular destination for locals and tourists, being perched on a picturesque plateau behind the Gold Coast and one hour from Brisbane.

There are also speculators looking at keeping a component and selling the other titles or alternatively selling them all.”Mr Williams said it was impossible to put a price guide on the land which is being offered under an expressions on interest campaign, closing on 2 July at 4pm.“It’s such a unique holding that it’s very difficult to do so [offer a price guide],” he said.“The Eden family have clearly owned it for a very long time so we need to go through a process which is really a market-driven outcome to see where the offers are.”last_img read more
