Claremont on Cootharaba - Open Home Cancelled 5th of August

Privately located on a peaceful country road this homestead enjoys fresh sea breezes each afternoon from Lake Cootharaba approx. 1.7km away. The 5 acre fenced block is slightly elevated and near level with the 2008 built house and pool gazebo near the centre point. On a quiet night the breaking surf on the north shore will whisper you to sleep. Four ancient Moreton bay figs adorn the property with shade from the west and provide ever-changing natural silhouettes from sunsets. The filtered light streams across the homestead gently spilling into the covered verandahs. Cootharaba is a renowned native bird area and offers one of the widest varieties in Australia.

The house is a perfect example of what passionate builder given free reign can create. Blending the functionality of the modern design with the essence of the gentler federation era has proven a successful marriage and special features enhance the simple and elegant design.

While the land is over 60% cleared, behind the home has been created a natural oasis with a rainforest walk with trickling rock pools and frog habitat. The lawned areas of the property are easily maintained with a ride on mower, and a loose sticks and leaves can be repurposed to the fire pit. Finally we have not forgotten about guests with the self- contained studio with kitchenette, bathroom and laundry, just perfect for long term visitors or air BnB. Explore the hinterland when visitors arrive with the famous Apollonian Hotel's Sunday lunches and picnics and sailing by the Lake right in your neighbourhood.
With 3 very large bedrooms and a spacious office the home services the family very well and the open planned living design with extended verandahs are popular places for interactions. The apparent beauty of this property goes beyond the relaxed picturesque homestead appeal. The extras and infrastructure means everything is in place and no further money needs to be spent by the new owners to enjoy the modern country home for many years to come.
