Peaceful hinterland hideaway hits the market
YOU certainly don't need to be a millionaire to buy Spicers Ridge, but you will always feel like one if you do.
Why? Firstly it is the very unique location and land - 41 high, private and handsome acres atop of peaceful and beautiful Mount Mee. While an undulating to hilly block, the property possesses a very unique large north-east facing saddle of cleared and beautifully grassed hilltop land.
The soft pastures are ideally suited to run a few cattle or horses.
Mount Mee is located on the beautiful and fertile hinterland between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, some 1600 feet above sea level.
Brisbane is an hour away, its International Airport closer, the electric train just 20 minutes, Woodford just 15 minutes and it is only 45 minutes to the nearest surf beach.
Renowned for its productive farmland, rich volcanic soils, lush pastures, unique climate with cool clean air, high rainfall and wonderful views, Mount Mee is a small country village with a laid back rural community - exactly like it was 50 years ago.
The home is about 20 years old and was designed by well known Brisbane and Melbourne architects Guymer Bailey. As this property is arguably the ultimate position on Mount Mee to capture the unique uninterrupted views, the brief was simple: To create a distinctive home that was to ensure the optimum capture of these amazing views from every space.
Clearly this has been achieved in spades. And what are these unobstructed and unsurpassed views? The unique domes, cones and spires of the World Heritage listed Glass House National Park, along with views from Caloundra to the Brisbane Airport - even the sand hills on Moreton Island.
Especially notable are the unique peaks of Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin - or Mount Crookneck to many - and the unmistakable Mount Tibrogargan.
The views change constantly and can never be built out ... and until the end of time.
The comfortable two-bedroom, two-level home has vaulted ceilings, classic polished timber floors, a slow combustion fireplace and two undercover verandas with timber decking.
Another feature of Spicers Ridge needs special mention, this property has the ultimate position on the sought-after eastern verge of Mount Mee, and regarded by most locals as having the most private position.
Water for the acreage and home is well catered for with two and a half dams, tanks and an envious 55" annual rainfall.
The property is accessed by sealed road by a long and quite country lane so you can feel the stress disappear even before you reach the front gate.
Spicers Ridge is a distinctive ultra-private home ideally placed to capture the finest views of the Glasshouse Mountains and the coast and islands beyond. It is not a property for work but for winding down, escaping or sharing quality time with friends and family.
