294 GANYAN DRIVE, SPEEWAH
Did you know that since the pandemic, there has been an Intense migration to the tablelands?
Buyers are seeking Wide open spaces that have Tranquillity, Privacy and are within an easy drive of their workplace.
Here, at 294 Ganyan Drive you have all of that & more!
Ensconced within Lush rain forest, a small patch of land has been selectively crafted to accommodate a stylish high-set Queenslander.
Here, you have an Idyllic private retreat surrounded by natural rainforest.
The Land is adjacent to a large natural wilderness which is home to nearby Ganyan Creek, feeding into the Clohesy River.
This habitat is rich in wildlife. In particular the rainforest wallabies, butterflies, cassowary & birds of many types, call this place home.
It is not unusual for you to witness Cassowary’s, with chicks, traversing the estate.
Entry to the estate is via a long driveway that meanders through lush Rainforest, leading to your home.
Arriving at the house you will notice that it is supported by sturdy steel posts.
The area below the house accommodates the laundry & can be further altered to suit your requirements.
A short flight of stairs leads to the front patio.
As this is facing east, this is where the early morning cuppa takes place!
Enjoy the views of your own private estate, along with birdsong & the sunny open location.
From the patio you step into a large open plan dining & lounge area.
The natural feel of natural timber, varnished architraves, tall ceilings, timber wall panels, are in keeping with the original era when this house was created.
Period furniture enhances the early settler feel of the home.
In particular the tall ceilings allow ample air circulation during the summer months.
A split air conditioning system is fitted to cool the lounge, dining & bedroom areas.
A lovely touch is the numerous multi coloured glass panels also known as “Lites” that make up the many windows.
The painting has been meticulously undertaken to highlight the cornices & other design elements of the home’s architecture.
The dining & kitchen areas open onto a spacious rear hardwood deck via
the wide varnished timber French doors.
These doors are fitted with large clear panels of glass, allowing in ample light.
With so many doors and windows this is a bright home with an elegant feel.
The kitchen is a feature in itself & a bonus for the enthusiastic home cook or chef.
Take a look at the photos & you will see that a quality Belling stove has been fitted. The perfect instrument to roast meats, bake biscuits, cakes, or breads.
And if you like food preparation, there is the centre island and the other wide work areas.
A large double sized fridge can take all the leftovers!
Another feature that I like are the many shiny round brass handles fitted to the draws & doors.
The pot rack is supported via a sturdy chain over the hardwood centre island.
This is such a quick & easy way to store your pots & pans.
No more bending & looking into dark areas. When washed, you simply dry & hang them up on their hooks!
Great, I Like that!
If it’s getting Hot & Steamy in the kitchen, well don’t get out … just simply open wide the varnished timber French doors which fold back onto the deck.
I really like the outdoor/indoor connection the deck area has with the kitchen.
Cook the snacks & pass them straight out to your guest enjoying their outdoor lunch.
This home has many terrific areas.
After the kitchen, let’s go to the bathroom!
This sensual environment has been designed to cater for the human sense of touch & feel.
A beautiful shiny enamelled claw footed bath, reminiscent of Days of Olde, sits proudly atop a black & white checked tiled floor.
The six windows each with their own set of eight coloured “lites”
If you are in a hurry & no time to indulge in a bath… then why not take a shower instead?
A large shower cubicle is simply perfect for the task & is sited opposite the bath.
After the bath, I guess that its bedtime, so please do retire to the spacious master bedroom.
Again, another set of six windows each with eight lites are installed on the eastern & northern wall.
The master bedroom is roomy, with tall ceilings & a comfortable space … just for you.
Your family members have two other bedrooms to choose from & both with the same window design.
Whilst the house does cater admirably for you & your family’s needs, there is also a huge workshop comprising a large three bay 9m x 9m shed.
This area has been used by the current owners for woodworking /metal working projects.
In addition there is enough room for a mezzanine level if you need to store more stuff.
The workshop is outfitted with a 10 amp/15-amp power circuits with fans and lights.
This property is on bore water with septic.
The driveway and areas around the house/shed have been recently graded and gravelled.
There is also a large concrete pad which can be used for entertaining or parking the family’s cars/toys.
A trench has been dug behind the house to funnel water away from the premises, into the bush, thus ensuring that these areas stay dry during the wet season.
In conclusion, this home has History – it is a Bunda Street railway cottage transported up the hill & has been completely renovated from
floorboard to rooftop!
Priced to sell at: $669,000
