Get Back to Nature

On 1.8 acres on the edge of the village with captivating mountain and surrounding countryside views, this picture perfect sustainably-built cottage is all you need to get off the corporate ladder, to get off get into the property market and get back to nature.

Built by Cooroy-based Eco Cottages, this modern take on the Queensland country cottage was crafted from locally-sourced cypress timbers. Known for its durability and density and natural white-ant resistance, Cypress has been used in the framework, structural beams and tongue & groove flooring.

Located in a high value newer estate of small acreage properties off Coles Creek Road, it is an easy walk to school, or to the shops and cafe of Cooran village.

The construction is durable and low-maintenance, and the clever design has one bedroom with walk-in robe and main bathroom at one end of the house, and the master bedroom with wardrobes and ensuite at the other.

Between them are the kitchen, living room and study, all complemented with decks, breezeways and louvres to capture every breeze and bit of shade on offer in summer and every ray of sunshine in winter.

This is a compact but very comfortable home for a young family starting out, or the professional couple or single choosing to drop out. Would also suit single parent one-child household - and anyone wanting to live a simple life.

The sloping block is stepped, allowing for the large carport and shed behind the home, with large gravelled parking area to the front of the home.

Extensive landscaping presents screening from neighbours and bird life to watch, with vege patch and orchard started, including Bowen Mango, avocado, macadamia, orange, lime, banana, paw paw and passionfruit.

Keep your own chickens, grow your own food. This is the ultimate ‘get back to nature’ property.
