A ONE-TIME Fernvale church, now a magnificent home and recording studio has hit the market in Fernvale.

The property is Applewood Lane where artists such as Tex Perkins, Saskwatch, Little Odessa and many others have recorded when they want to get away from the urban rat race.

Owners, producer Magoo and his wife Tylea and family have lived there seven years but they say now is time to move on to a new chapter in their lives.

"Applewood has been the most awesome experience for me - to own and record in a church, is the dream for any producer," Mahoo said.

"I would love to see it carry on as a studio, if not only for selfish reasons - I would remain its most frequent customer."

The couple tried to sell up in October 2012 and then withdrew it from the market before setting up the studio, catering to a range of bands from across Australia.

But Magoo said it was now time to move forward for the family.

"I would like to downscale the Applewood Lane operation. The move will allow me more freedom to work without the pressure of running and maintaining a larger scaled studio," he said.

"I would also like to establish a smaller, tailored mixing suite to maximise my work time."

Tylea, who is also studio manager, said Applewood had not only been their home but also their workspace, a place where their children have grown up and a place where much great music was made.

"It is hard to let all of that go, but we know it is the best decision for us.," she said.

The couple said the studio would continue to run as normal until they receive a firm offer for the property and they would contact clients discuss alternative recording arrangements,

This original home is set on 10 acres of treed bushland in a quiet pocket of Fernvale and has three bedrooms, three  bathrooms, a media room, and  swimming pool.

It was originally restored by the Jumelet family - a longstanding Fernvale family.

Applewood Lane is listed online for sale through Karen Bagenal at Realway, Ipswich.
