If the classic facade of this period home creates expectations – the interior spaces will deliver delightful surprises.  This Federation, Bungalow-roofed house (1890-1910) is rich in period detail and is beautifully positioned in a rambling garden on a 3603sqm block adjacent to park land and overlooking hundreds of acres of farmland with extensive views of the surrounding countryside.

The interior retains a wealth of yesteryear character like traditional central hallway with high ceilings, polished timber floors, VJ walls, double hung full length windows, French doors and verandas on three sides.

The front door leads you into the grand entry varnished timber hall with an arched hallway entry to the formal lounge and dining room with a slow combustion heater for winter warmth. Turn left and past the two queen sized main bedrooms off the hall that will lead you to the single child’s bedroom or office and eat-in country kitchen with massive picture windows overlooking the rural beauty outside.

The lower level also presents with a large living room offering versatility as a second living area, media room, family rumpus or teen retreat with private access to the garden. The modern family bathroom, separate toilet and laundry are also down stairs from the kitchen. Upstairs adjacent to the kitchen there is a half bathroom and toilet.

This private sanctuary with fully landscaped gardens is the perfect environment for the children to play in.   The back of the property was recently fenced.  A private laneway between the property and the working farm behind, gives privacy and security.  For 20 years the owners have maintained the adjacent parkland which also acts as a firebreak for this side of the property.

Positioned discreetly near the house is a six bay shed that has three car ports and a fully timber lined workshop ideal for the antique restorer, the handyman looking for a clean environment or for use as an artisan’s studio.  The rear of the shed boasts a full length pergola perfect for outdoor entertaining.

This stylish Queenslander is twenty minutes west of Ipswich and 60km east of Toowoomba. 

With 60,000lt of fresh tank water with house pump, septic toilets, grey water system and 3.3kw solar power (back to grid).

Accommodating a lifestyle where entertaining areas and private retreats coexist to create privacy, safety and seamless flow at every turn. The owners have lovingly restored, refurbished and landscaped this country home and are ready to move onto a new adventure, leaving some minor jobs and cosmetic updates for the next couple who fall in love with “Gladville” at Minden.
