Introducing, 'Larrakeyah'. It is one of Australia's most unique rural residences backed by over six scores of southern Queensland history and situated on 175 hectares of fertile farmland. With views to the Great Dividing Range by day and the glowing lights of Clifton and Toowoomba by night, the setting is magical - away from the bustling city life but close enough when you choose to enjoy it.
Wrapped by a generously proportioned veranda, Larrakeyah is the pinnacle of Queenslander living with 885 sqm metres under roof. Living on the land is done in fashionable style with its citrus trees and rows of garden beds. Preparing fruit preserves using handpicked lemons or collecting fresh herbs from the garden, life at Larrakeyah comes with the ingredients to make a happy home.
It is modern living tempered by the best that countryside living has to offer with wood-burning fireplaces that warm the home and equally warm the heart. Larrakeyah is a home that is abuzz with fun and energy to be enjoyed year-round. When it comes to entertaining, there is plenty of space for everyone to join together or apart with its multiple living areas from formal to casual.
Like many homes, the heart of Larrakeyah is its kitchen and WOW, what a kitchen it is! Designed as a commercial kitchen with stainless steel benchtops, three refrigerators, a restaurant-quality gas stove, and a walk-in larder, the kitchen adjoins the meals room. If ever there was a perfect home for a multi-generational family or a boutique bed and breakfast business, it is Larrakeyah.
In Queenslander-style, the ceilings soar to over three metres with architectural details from ornate ceiling roses to elaborate cornices, fretwork and stained-glass windowpanes. As the saying goes, they don't make things like they used to - Larrakeyah was built like they used to' with ironbark timber and high-quality materials. It is a home built for a lifetime, never to be duplicated.
The eastern wing' of the home is guest quarters with a spacious living room, kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms and a private entrance. It's an ideal set up for teenagers, grandparents or operated as an Airbnb-styled accommodation.
