For the past 23 years the current owners have adored living here in this spacious family home, raising their children and now grandchildren. Set privately on 6000sqm (almost 1.5 acres) the home offers a peaceful and private lifestyle and ample space inside and out. The home boasts a huge outdoor entertainment area, 2 great indoor living spaces, 3 full bathrooms and heaps of vehicle storage.  Best of all is a relaxed and country lifestyle just 24km from Brisbane CBD.
