Unique 'Creekside' retreat in a nature refuge and rural intentional community

Sold - North Branch Qld

This is a unique opportunity to join a thriving land-sharing, multiple occupancy, intentional community and gazetted nature refuge in south-east Queensland, Australia (approximately ½ hour drive to the town of Warwick and approximately 1.5 hours to Brisbane CBD).

‘Creekside’ is a personal homesite situated on a one-hectare (2.4 acre) area of the Mandala community.
You will also own a share of Mandala’s approximately 112 hectares (275 acres) and all the facilities that go with it, including the beautiful walking tracks.

‘Creekside’ is a two storey A-frame cottage, part mud-brick, stone and timber, overlooking the creek and surrounding mountains. It has one fully enclosed bedroom downstairs and two open plan bedrooms or study/sunrooms (both areas fit queen size beds) in an open loft upstairs.

Open plan lounge and dining with cypress pine-lined ceilings, separate kitchen (outlook to creek) and separate bathroom and septic toilet downstairs.

It has a wood-fired barrel heater for winter nights, two undercover outdoor verandas for summer days, and an upstairs deck for star-gazing.

The house has mains electricity, gas stove, satellite dish (tv) and landline phone connections (and enabled for internet connection), as well as high-pressure creek water supply (including gas hot water).

There’s a small established olive grove and chicken coop. Plus there’s loads of potential for vegetable gardens, composting and chickens, as well as renovating and installing tanks and solar.

You can see and hear the creek from the house when it’s flowing, and there are frequently wading pools and swimming holes just below the house, as well as larger swimming holes closer to the common areas during summer.

The common land, including the riparian area are mostly reserved for conservation. However, approximately 20 hectares are set aside for human purposes including grazing areas and a community centre.

The community centre includes a meeting room, workshop, shelter shed and camping ground with a BBQ, septic toilet and water supply, as well as storage for the community’s tractor and other shared equipment.
Sale price $255,000 (includes some optional furnishings).

The Mandala company constitution and the non-freehold nature of Mandala’s Licence to Occupy do not allow conventional mortgage finance from lending institutions, however the Company may approve a purchase involving vendor or other sources of finance.
