Country living on Brisbane’s doorstep

An idyllic country lifestyle can be found only 25 minutes from the Brisbane CBD on this luxurious 2.4 acre property in the sought-after Samford Royal Estates.

With price expectations exceeding $2.89 million, the four-year-old home boasts six bedrooms and five bathrooms, including a private guest wing with external access, all on town water and within walking distance of the peaceful Samford Village.

25 Warwick Lane also includes a large horse paddock, heated 17-metre lap pool, professionally landscaped gardens and ten car spaces across two garages.

At 671 square metres, the single level custom-built home is unique in the area and was recently used in a Isuzu commercial, according to the proud owner, Donna Aplin.

“Isuzu came and knocked on our door and asked if they could use the property,” said Mrs Aplin, speaking of the commercial.

“ I spent so many hours on the design, I wanted that open plan feel and to also capture the beautiful outlook. ” she said, adding that the property faces north towards the surrounding mountains.

The inside is equally impressive with a flowing open plan incorporating a lavish kitchen along with spacious living and dining rooms perfect for entertaining.

A guest wing with two ensuited bedrooms, and a living area is serviced by a laundry and kitchenette contained in the four-car garage allowing it to be completely closed off from the rest of the house.

“It’s perfect for grandparents, teenagers or younger adults that won’t leave home!” she laughed.

A further six car spaces are available in the large shed adjacent to the house which Mrs Aplin suggested would be perfect for a caravan or boat lover.

Despite deciding to sell, the vendors do not plan on leaving the area.

“Samford Valley is beautiful. Once you’ve lived out here, you don’t want to leave. It’s such a calming place – you feel so far away from everything,” said Mrs Aplin.

“All you hear are the birds but the city is right there if you want it.”

The low-density community still has all the necessary amenities though, according to selling agent and long-time resident of the area, Brett Crompton of Ray White Samford.

“Samford Village has everything: a renowned pub, speciality cafes, doctors, dentist and supermarket,” he said.

The local schools, Samford Primary School and independent Samford Valley Steiner School, are a three and seven minute drive from the property, respectively.

Mr Crompton described the estate as well-located to take advantage of the kilometres of local horse riding trails adjacent to the South Pine River.

“It’s phenomenal countryside, just breathtaking.”

Other features include ducted air conditioning, outdoor entertaining pavilion, fire pit entertaining area, games room, purpose-built home theatre room, CCTV set up, electric gates, 5kW solar power and a 5000L water tank.
The estate is priced at $2.89 million. For more information or to book a private inspection contact Brett Crompton on 0413 744 237 |
