House in Gin Gin QLD 4671Listed January 2020
This magnificent property for $460,000 ono, it comprises 5 acres of beautiful red volcanic soil that will grow anything, situated within 2 minutes’ drive from the town of Gin Gin.Queensland. Our property has Town water supply, a 9 million litre Dam that was originally built to act as a gravity storage for the lower front paddock to be filled by solar and wind pumping from the spring system. Dee Bee road is a no through road with only one property past ours so traffic is nearly non-existent with only 6 houses and the local community Church in the street.
The gardens are extensive and low maintenance with many flowering species for the hundreds of native birds. Our home Has 2 very large bedrooms with the master bedroom having a walk-in robe and sliding door access to the veranda. The glassed in sun room is currently used as a third bedroom and office. Construction is concrete block with solid internal walls and 3 metre ceilings and ornate cornice and centre mouldings through most of the house the house was designed so it would be a simple process to extend the hall allowing another 2 or more bedroome to be built.
The open fireplace is constructed from solid Granite with the hearth surrounded by antique tiles in a hand forged steel framing. The chimney is constructed with corbeled brick work giving the exterior a unique appearance as the corbeling takes the chimney around the gable this aids in proper flu draft. The modern kitchen is also unique in design with extensive cupboards and large self-closing draws.
We have a 5-kilowatt grid connect solar power system our last electricity invoice was $350 in excess of usage so they pay us most of the time, the hot water is via a 2-panel solar hot water with 200lt of storage. The house is two extra-large bedrooms and office/sunroom with open-plan lounge, dinning and extra-large kitchen. The large roomy Master bedroom has a walk-in robe and large sliding door to the veranda, while the second bedroom has large sliding window and is very spacious at 4.5 x 4mt, all internal doors are over 100 years old Hoop pine with hand forget steel handles and latches much of the house features Blacksmiths art.
The high roofed Bull nose veranda is a favoured spot to sit and watch the abundance of bird life while overlooking the 9 mega-litre Dam, two open archers give access from the dinning and lounge room to our sun-room/office. On those rare cold winter mornings the massive granite fireplace radiates warmth through its rear wall to warm the sun-room and then flow on to the rest of the home acting as a heat bank. Winters are short last year winter was on a Tuesday Lol this is the start of the mild tropics, the weather is beautiful one day perfect the next.
With the open plan, 3mt (10foot) high ceilings, insulated & vented roof space, 22 solar panels shading the roof and 25 deg pitch this is an extremely cool house in summer with all walls shaded. The house is 18.5mt by 11.3mt giving 209 sq mt under roof so not a small house. Due to the design the reverse cycle air-conditioning is rarely used and when it is the solar puts the breaks on any high power bills.
The town of Gin Gin is 1klm away with modern well staffed Hospital, Police station, 2 hotels, all schools to high school are within 3klm, modern super IGA shopping centre with Chemist and News Agency this property has all the advantages of town living with the seclusion of the country.
