Paradise Found - Private Acreage Retreat
House Sold - COMMISSIONERS CREEK NSW
Set in an incredibly private, picturesque corner of the beautiful Tweed Valley, this magnificent rural retreat offers a welcome, peaceful escape from today’s fast-paced world.
Surrounded by regenerated sub-tropical rainforest, the 2 hectare/5 acre block boasts a fully renovated Queenslander home with delightful low maintenance landscaped gardens, easy maintained lawns, wide frontage to a babbling creek and spring-fed water hole.
Overlooking world heritage listed National Parks, you’re surrounded by large acreage holdings, providing the benefit of complete and utter tranquillity and privacy.
You’ll be captivated by the gorgeous 120-year-old Queenslander which has been meticulously and superbly restored and extended to perfectly blend its original character features with our modern lifestyle. Originally a colonial worker’s cottage, the home was relocated from Brisbane in 1997 with approval by Tweed Shire Council. The proud owners can list the provenance of just about every floorboard, window, light fitting and feature in the property – a full list is available. Features include stunning original fretwork, gleaming 6 inch wide Hoop Pine floorboards and VJ wall lining board plus 12ft Hoop Pine VJ ceilings.
