Mainwaring’s Magnificent Mount View

75 Moy Pocket Gap Road

Moy Pocket

This very private country farm named “Mount View” has a world of possibilities.

It would make the ultimate lifestyle retreat: with four separate buildings all designed by architect John Mainwaring. This property exudes the sophistication, that only an architect with cart blanche can achieve, and how great that outcome can be…when client and Architect collaborate and equally have a passion for excellence. Quality workmanship, attention to detail and overall great design make this property irreplaceable at this price.

The original 1890‘s Queenslander was painstakingly deconstructed by the Architects and re-built maintaining the aesthetics of the old and whilst reinventing it, with contemporary design components. Part of this process included adding a two-story wing that integrates seamlessly with a modern element. What a great outcome the architects achieved, not only do you feel like you are walking into a home but an actual piece of artwork.

The main house features: 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a large dining and living area, kitchen all with large verandahs or decks to relax and enjoy.The views from the main house overlook the Blackall Ranges and the pool (designed by the architects to feel like a billabong) and then onto a lovely treed grove that leads to the 100 metre frontage to the Mary River.

The separate guest house has that “great bush semblance”, that Mainwaring integrated into his scope for Mount View, with big wide decks and great ventilation. This gorgeous pavilion contains: 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, living/dining, kitchen and laundry. The third residence is a large single roomed office designed to be a modern take on a Queenslander. Again Mainwaring added new elements to the traditional construction and create a modern workspace. There is also the opportunity to make it into another guest house.

The fourth “out building” designed by Mainwaring is the split level workspace/shed: meticulously designed with large windows, natural light and high ceilings- this is another fantastic space.

The lower level has power and a large storage room as well as a “cave” wine cellar, built in traditional European style- with a concave arched brickwork that can accommodate 1000 bottles of wine. Whilst the upper level would make the perfect Yoga room, artists studio or as a back up, “boy’s toys room”.

The property itself is gently undulating just under 9 hectares (22 acres) it has a wonderful pastures land and easy care garden as well as a man-made huge lake and river frontage.
