Your own piece of paradise

IF you love a classic Queenslander with all the period trimmings - but also hanker for the sleek functionality of an as-new bathroom and a modern kitchen with Miele appliances - then inspect 22 Jirrama Crescent, Cooroibah.

Here is a charming 100-year-old home that ticks all the boxes for period features such as high ceilings, tongue and groove walls, French doors and wide, welcoming verandahs where one can curl up to read a book or enjoy a sundowner.

It is a perfect house for families, entertaining a crowd or accommodating ageing parents or noisy teenagers in its separate, self-contained garden granny flat.

This fabulous property is set in five acres of beautifully landscaped, well-established grounds completely hidden from the road and accessed via a private driveway through a fully-fenced front paddock perfect for a pony.

People seeking a rural idyll will love not only the warmth and comfort of this unique home, but also the added features such as a tool shed and workshop, potting shed and ready-made chicken coop or barn to suit a couple of goats.

Agistment is also a possibility in this horse-loving locale that has bore, dam and water tanks plus fully-fenced front horse paddock.
