‘Gunnadoo’ A Rustic Hideaway Awaits
496 Wheelbarrow Ridge Road, COLO HEIGHTS
Framed by the pristine Yengo National Park and the soothing allure of the Colo River valley, ‘Gunnadoo’ is a multi-faceted, 25 acre canvas of nature’s splendour, promising tranquil mornings and serene evenings amidst the backdrop of Australia’s majestic outdoors.
Nestled within the sprawling, north-south orientated expanse, the main residence stands reminiscent of a rustic mountainside log cabin. Spanning 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and loft – perfect for a study room, it boasts a split-level design and a robust brick and tiled exterior that effortlessly harmonises with the surrounding landscape.
The kitchen, a beacon of warmth, is equipped with a Bega woodfire stove and electric cooking, while the living space also reveals a slow combustion fireplace inset within an exposed brick mantel. Slate floors and timber beams complement the home’s historical undertones, crafted from recycled materials, convict-era bricks, and Wunderlich Kiln bricks.
Further enhancing its charm, a second cottage, privately positioned, features 1 bedroom and an outdoor bathroom, presenting itself as a potential entertainment extension or quiet retreat from the main homestead. And for those looking for more, an original studio awaits a creative touch, whether reimagined as additional accommodation or a handy home office.
Beyond the main dwellings, ‘Gunnadoo’ boasts an array of functional additions. Multiple water tanks stand on the property including a generous 28,000L water tank alongside a sprawling 13x10m work shed. Various carports and additional sheds dot the property, catering to tradespeople, machinery storage, or car enthusiasts. The verdant land itself is enriched with an enticing orchard of orange, lemon, mulberry, grapefruit, and passionfruit trees and a diverse range of wildlife, promising daily encounters with nature’s wonder.
Situated with adjoining access to the national park, the property also boasts RU1 zoning, presenting numerous recreational and land-use opportunities (STCA). Additionally, with Colo Heights Public School nearby and the historic Windsor township just a 40 minute drive away, the property seamlessly combines seclusion with convenience, appealing to those seeking a unique home experience.
