Live among the gum trees!

Take a moment to admire the Aussie bush views from the front porch, or curl up with a book to watch the sunset and the lights of Laidley town and Toowoomba.
Step inside to a breezy and open living space with high ceilings and beautiful exposed beams. A colourful, open plan kitchen features new appliances (oven/stovetop, rangehood and dishwasher all new), built-in pantry and plenty of storage space. The living space contains a wood fire and AC, for comfortable entertaining in any weather.

Upstairs you'll find a large, insulated attic bedroom (currently art room) with its own air conditioner and chandelier-style lighting. The adjoining mezzanine looks over the living room, and serves as a lovely study nook or storage area.

Downstairs, a hallway brings you through to the bathroom and connecting 'mud room' with a beautiful, separate vanity with ample storage. The remaining two bedrooms are protected from the sun by external awnings and internal blinds. The larger of the two (currently the master bedroom) features a ceiling fan and large built-in cupboards, and comfortably fits a queen bed plus storage. The smaller makes an excellent guest bedroom, with a built-in shelf, mirror and black-out blind.

For the animal lovers

'Garrilpilli', meaning 'wallaby gully' in local language Yuggera, was built in the 80s by avid birdwatchers. The front porch affords views of frequent native visitors, including lorikeets, wallabies, king parrots, brushtail possums, peacocks and plenty more! The especially keen animal watchers may even encounter the resident echidna family or spot a tawny frogmouth!

A lockable cat door opens onto a 22m2 enclosed back deck with professionally installed cat netting to keep small pets safe and away from native wildlife. An inbuilt cupboard has been converted to a cat play tower, with storage above. This setup may suit an adventurous bird or dog.

Gardens and Grounds

Outside, take a stroll through the courtyard with a water feature and admire the various terraced garden beds set up out the front of the property. Irrigation is all set up to the tank network for easy watering. Sit in the old tipuana tree which overlooks the upper dam and listen to the lorikeets above and the frogs in the dam.

Past the dam, walk along the second driveway lined with bougainvillaeas to the stable-turned-veggie patch. Nearby outbuildings and a water tank are set up for you, just start planting! Two established chicken coops stand ready for you to start the hobby farm of your dreams.

The 12x8m industrial shed has plenty of room for hobbyists, featuring a built in workbench and engine hoist, plus plenty of open space for storage, entertaining and more. Power and lighting are already hooked up, plus there's a new, sturdy base ready for a rainwater tank to be connected for an easy water source.
Those looking to expand might wish to build a second house on the established building pad where the shed now stands (subject to council approval).

Closer to the road, you'll find a fenced area previously used for horse pasture and a storage outbuilding, perfect for gardening equipment or horse tack. Nearby is an orchard setup ready for some TLC.

Apart from clearing weeds, the rest of the lot has been left to nature. Many days can be spent exploring the bush section. Follow the creek to discover tiny native jasmines and some beautiful carved rock formations, caused by many years of erosion. Visit the larger bottom dam, which can be pumped up to the house in emergencies. Two clearings nearby are suitable for entertaining or picnics, both are accessible to the road with a 4x4.

The lower section of Kessling Dr past Garrilpilli (towards the town of Laidley) is a gazetted road, traversable with 4x4 but not officially maintained by council. A section of this gazetted road is leased from Main Roads to the owner of Garrilpilli, and is currently fenced as a pasture for livestock.
