Acreage with so much exciting potential

Amber Werchon Property presents to the market 251 Burnside, Burnside. Just minutes to Nambour township & Burnside schools, and under 25 min to Maroochydore, this stunningly beautiful property holds incredible potential. With 17 acres of undulating pastures, the site is unusually large given how close it is to Nambour. Having two large dams, two attractive residences & a granny flat, the property may immediately be used as a farm, and indeed it has been running cattle & horses. It may also be used as a scenic and peaceful wedding venue and this too has already happened. Being located in the very heart of the Sunshine Coast's Hinterland, the property could welcome farm, health or eco-tourists, with some of Queensland's most popular tourist attractions on its doorstep and easy access to the Sunshine Coast beaches. Alternatively, this property could just be taken over as dream homes for one or two families who enjoy horse-riding.

About the bespoke dwellings…
A long gravel road lined with shady trees and lawns leads to the two residences and granny flat. To the left are idyllic rolling green hills. To the right are views of the valley and the two large dams which are more like small meandering lakes.

The main house presents as a cross between a Californian Bungalow and a Swiss mountain cottage with a lower Australian-style roof, so the Californian-style gardens really fit in.
- The south-east facing tiled veranda extends with a massive covered timber deck, ideal for a large wedding party. The timber handrail is over-sized to double as a bar top, inviting enjoyment of the spectacular panorama of the dams and the valley all the way down to the sea, all framed by the surrounding hills and mountains
- A custom-made multi-paned timber door provides an impressive entrance to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, which features raked ceiling, exposed beams, ceiling fan, polished timber flooring, glass-fronted fireplace with stone surround, two storage rooms, and a wall of glass looking out on the landscape
- The real chef's kitchen includes an island bench, stainless-steel appliances, double sink, pantry and one solid timber benchtop
- An office and a games room (with full bathroom and rustic bar) open onto the pool
- The resort-style swimming pool has an infinity edge and rockery, surrounded by timber deck, sandstone terracing and glorious views of the countryside
- The three bright and spacious bedrooms feature ceiling fans, timber flooring, built-ins and more breathtaking vistas, the master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe
- The bathroom has French shutters, decorative tiles, shower and separate bath
- Massive farm shed with roller door has room for about seven cars. There is also a massive carport for two cars plus a tiled area for sauna and jacuzzi

The second home is smaller but bursting with character. It has the feel of a log cabin with timber lining to internal and external wall faces.
- Striking corrugated steel and timber flooring throughout. Louvre windows along one wall provide plenty of ventilation and there is a pot belly stove when it is cold
- The kitchen includes a pantry, recessed shelving and a solid timber countertop
- Both bedrooms are spacious. The master has a walk-in robe. French doors with red glazing make a bold entry to the second bedroom, with built-ins & adjacent study
- A wide verandah allows alfresco dining and looks out on the landscaped garden
- This home has a single carport

The one-bedroom granny flat has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with a bathroom and covered patio

Potential for agriculture (STCA)…
The land is zoned Rural and makes an ideal hobby farm or the basis for intensive agriculture. While cattle and horses have been successfully grazing on this land, other animals such as goats and alpaca could do well on this green, elevated and hilly land. Consistent uses in the Rural zone include less than 21 standard units of pigs or less than 1,000 birds or poultry. The land receives exceptionally high rainfall (annual mean of 2047mm), and with its high average temperature of 17.7 to 28.5 degrees and high humidity of about 77%, may suit tropical crops such as avocado and mango or renowned local crops like ginger and macadamia. The two large dams support stock and potentially also aquaculture.

Potential for weddings and tourism (STCA)…
The existing dwellings can already be used to receive guests for peaceful country B&B or farm stay. There is already a resort-style swimming pool and a tennis court could easily be added. The homes may also be used for weddings. The addition of an art and craft centre (up to gross 300m2) could potentially be added in the Rural zone. The planning scheme also makes a camping ground or addition of up to 8 holiday cabins a possibility for nature-based tourism. The site would make an ideal eco-resort or health resort.
