A class act in the country

NOTHING quite prepares you for this magnificent property.

Just to the north of Maleny, you continue down a country lane, up and over a rise and into the gated estate. Then it appears before you ... much like a villa in France I suspect.

Stylish without being overdone, the two-level executive home is on 13.67ha with the southern boundary enjoying about 1km of Obi Obi Creek frontage.

There are park-like surrounds but towering trees and rainforest is along the creek that features dramatic 40m-high sheer rock cliffs as a backdrop.

You have a strong sense of arrival at the house with a grand entry arcade then marble-tiled atrium foyer.

There's a tower for guests above the garage, while a sun room or gallery connects to the main house. It features a guest suite as well as two more bedrooms and main bathroom on the ground floor, leaving the entire top floor for the main bedroom suite.

A fireplace is in the spacious dining or games room - it's actually a double sized room, almost a copy of the media lounge ... only bigger. Both look to the water feature in the courtyard.

To the south east is the 25m infinity-edge, saltwater swimming pool and the bushland backdrop.

Upstairs, the main bedroom suite has an ensuite with circular stand-alone bath, walk-in robe plus private balcony and bridge.

A matching theme has been carried throughout the entire residence. Ducted air-conditioning is in the main residence and 10m by 4m sunroom linking to the east wing that incorporates a tiled two-car auto garage plus entertaining/rumpus and bathroom.

The upper level is self-contained with bathroom, kitchen, living and bedroom area. It also features a veranda and access to a rooftop observation deck.

The property contains a 9m by 6m two-bay shed with carport plus second 6m by 6m shed. There are even places to land a helicopter.
