A bushland retreat and secret family hideaway, the residence enjoys an elevated position in a whisper-quiet cul-de-sac, with much to be enjoyed in this stunning locale.
Known for its sweeping panoramic views, the Clear Mountain area seems worlds away from the hustle, bustle and distraction of city life, while remaining just 20km northwest of central Brisbane and close to the shops and facilities of nearby Eatons Hill, Samford Village and Albany Creek.
Local bus terminals at Eatons Hill and the Ferny Hills train station provide public transportation options, while Brisbane’s northern corridor and the Bruce Highway to the Sunshine Coast are also accessible with relative ease.
A mere 10 minute drive to Lake Samsonvale offers opportunities for camping, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing, while adventurers will love the bush hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and walking tracks centred around Clear Mountain Conservation Park.
Turn your hand at pottery, local craft workshops and artisan endeavours or explore the many creative arts studios for which the surrounding townships of Samford Village, Dayboro and Old Petrie Town have come to be known or perhaps visit Stephanie’s Mountain Spa or Mandy’s Lakeview Lounge and Dining at the “other” Clear Mountain Lodge and retreat.
Indeed, offering its own quiet and tree-lined outlook over the State Forest and Samford Valley, this unassuming and much-loved family residence offers a rare opportunity to experience this locale as your own backyard.
Your very own Clear Mountain lodge, this charming residence is equal parts rustic cabin and rural retreat.
Lovingly updated over the years by the family who has lived here, there’s an authenticity and ruggedness about this house nestled comfortably into its leafy landscape, with a pared-back and earthy aesthetic seeing timber floors and exposed brickwork intermingle with hardy finishes and industrial elements which, along with a freestanding wood-heater fireplace, set the tone for a warm and inviting family home.
4 oversized bedrooms, 3 well-appointed bathrooms and multiple living spaces emanate out from the home’s heart – a modern, updated kitchen with huge island bench and a suite of quality appliances including induction cooktop.
Soaring vaulted timber-lined ceilings and a huge pop-up skylight welcome in natural elements such as sunlight and breeze, presiding over the home’s sprawling, single-level layout, perfect for growing or multigenerational families who can be accommodated with ease.
A generous covered entertaining area extends out back from the kitchen, with a separate covered entertaining hut, outdoor firepit area and timber-framed courtyard embracing a stunning outlook over the home’s bushland setting marked by an abundance of both tropical and native trees.
With additional generous under-house storage and a huge shed boasting power and water, this unique property also provides covered accommodation for 3 cars and copious on-site parking for many more, maintaining complete privacy from neighbours courtesy of the huge parcel of land.
