Unique high end rural estate boasts 565ha, fully renovated mansion, two guest houses and a 1km airstrip with two aircraft hangars.
Wirraway, an award winning, state-of-the-art mansion and 565 hectare property in the Scenic Rim region has been placed on the market and is likely to attract international interest.
Wirraway is an hour drive from Brisbane and Gold Coast, located at 351 Armstrong Road Biddaddaba. The owners extensively renovated the property after they purchased it in 2012.
The impressive estate includes a four bedroom mansion with a grand ballroom, wine cellar, home cinema, fully equipped gymnasium and library; a 30 metre pool with roof mounted automated diving board; two guest houses and tennis court with an indoor air conditioned viewing area; two aircraft hangars, a private 1km airstrip and a large machinery shed.
The property is being marketed by Ben Forrest, Deborah Cullen and Rawdon Briggs of Colliers International via an international Expressions of Interest campaign closing 11 November.
“Originally this property had a large scale four bedroom traditional homestead with a ballroom which was in disrepair. Both the property and the home needed major renovation,” said Mr Forrest.
“The owners demolished old buildings and finished off existing structures like the aircraft hangars. Just about everything in the house was custom made, they wanted top quality in every part of the renovation, and done perfectly.
“The house features highest quality finishes such as imported Italian cornices in the ballroom, iron bark flooring, Catherine Martin wall paper and European appliances.
“The IT system manages many of the property’s features including the CCTV, gatehouse and security, home entertainment, fireplaces, irrigation, energy management and lighting.
“The remainder of the property is utilised as a stud cattle operation, running Droughtmaster cattle. The land is made up of 565ha comprising irrigation land, improved pastured grazing land, improved pastured timber grazing, scrub as well as buildings, grounds and airstrip.”
The impressive renovation undertaken by Carpentology Group Pty Ltd has won them the Master Builders House of the Year award in 2014 on the Gold Coast. For its integrated IT system, the property won the CEDIA Best Integrated Home and Clipsal & Schneider Best residential Project.
