A secluded haven, Dove Farm has exquisite views from every part of its beautiful mature landscaped gardens and residence. Rarely does an estate of this size and grandeur become available and it represents an incredibly unique offering in the prestigious Tallebudgera Valley. Bordered by its own rainforest, lake and picturesque paddocks, with the Tallebudgera, Cougal and Bally Mountains beyond, its central vista over the water to the majestic escarpment of Springbrook is quite simply, stunning. So magical, in fact, that it has been used as a location for international films. The single level home with high ceilings and grand proportions has wrap-around tiled verandas, and a French-Provincial style rear courtyard with separate wine cellar and utility room.
Living areas flow with ease, from the chefs kitchen complete with walk-in pantry, Miele appliances and a commercial sized cold-room, to the spacious breakfast area, sitting room and formal dining room and lounge. The massive master suite adjoins a generous wardrobe and dressing room area, and a large bathroom with spa, and double shower. There is an entrance foyer and reception area with two additional double bedrooms, two more bathrooms, ample office, laundry and sewing room, and a linen room. Copious built-in storage spaces are provided throughout. Ducted air-conditioning, cedar windows and French doors from every room to the veranda and gardens beyond give comfort, warmth and ambience. The wide driveway through the main gateway to the residence circles an island of palms to undercover parking for six cars, out of sight of the house. Set in gardens above, a l2m resort-style pool with cabana and heated spa offers complete privacy in a tropical setting with an expanse of lawn and mountain views.
Completely separate from the main residence, a two bedroom, self-contained guest cottage set in its own garden adjoins the rainforest and overlooks the lake spillway. Paths lead through the trees to the jetty and lakeside lawns. A charming self-contained studio adjoining a workshop and large carport can be accessed from a second gated entrance which also services the house. Sharing ownership of the lake with one other neighbour, the property has licensed pumping rights and a large-bore, underground high-pressure outlets and sprinklers through the gardens. This also tops up the domestic water storage ensuring an endless crystal clear supply.
Located 15 minutes from beaches, major shopping outlets and commuter trains serving Brisbane and Brisbane International Airport; 20 minutes from the Gold Coast International airport, and approximately an hour from Brisbane’s CBD, the property is within striking distance of every amenity. Many fine schools are within the valley or surround it and can be accessed via school bus services.
