Sweetwater Estate in the Hinterland

1620 Maleny Stanley River Rd

Maleny, Qld

Two spectacular homes on one 40-acre property. This property you simply must consider as your new home. “Sweetwater” was purchased in 2006 by the owners and since then has undergone a transformation to become one of the most sought-after locations on the range.

The original house, The Cottage, was renovated and expanded in 2007 while the Manor House on top of the hill was built in 2012 by Storybook Cottages.
During the entire time the property itself has undergone a complete regeneration and revegetation program.

It is one of the last sub-tropical rainforest areas in S E Queensland. Having the privilege of its own spring fed water course and spectacular waterfall, the owners have painstakingly built a series of rock steps and paths to access this beautiful part of the property and built a hut and picnic area providing a private sanctuary.

Perched on top of the Blackall Range with uninterrupted views stretching to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, the Manor House at Sweetwater is known by the locals as “The Castle House”. Occupying a commanding elevated position, its three-storey turret can be seen as you drive along Maleny Stanley River Road.

This extraordinary dwelling exudes luxury and style and offers comfortable living for the discerning. The design features include quality fittings and trims, unique light fittings, an Italian designed residential lift, a built in library, designer kitchen, insulated internal and external walls to control the interior climate, a view from every living area, enough solar panels to eliminate your electricity bill, and tinted windows to protect your valuable furniture.

The kitchen is a delight when touched by the morning sun and offers a walk-in pantry, granite bench tops, quality finish, and magnificent Falcon Classic stove with a 5 burner gas cook top, a warmer, griddle, and duel ovens with one conventional and one fan forced. A designated cupboard with stainless steel racks for your glassware and a rack for your wine bottles. Twin dish wash drawers complete your needs.

The upstairs living room is open plan and allows enjoyment and appreciation of the fabulous views while partaking in meals and entertainment. The genuine antique wooden mantel surrounding the fireplace was sourced from a heritage hotel in Adelaide.

At the bottom of the spiral staircase leading to the tower is a delightful sitting room for a quiet cuppa, a chat or to read your favourite novel.
The third floor Tower Room makes you feel on top of the world and is the ideal place to watch storms and weather events roll across the coast and Brisbane.
The two impressive interior wooden staircases are made from quality Tasmanian Oak and Kwela timbers and compliment the rich Jarrah floorboards on the second floor.

The first floor has been creatively used by the owners to accommodate their special interests. The media room has been used for a museum that houses their treasures while the first floor of the tower is used as a music room.
All the bathrooms have custom made benches with granite tops and quality tapware. Even the laundry is impressive.

The second dwelling, Sweetwater Cottage is also famous it its own right having hosted weddings and functions in recent years. It has a lovely ambiance and is surrounded by sub-tropical rainforest and beautiful easily maintained gardens. The cottage has a unique character you will fall in love with. Its leadlight fittings, expansive granite kitchen and wonderful undercover entertaining area make it an entertainer’s delight. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 fireplaces and a special feature is the filtered spring water in the kitchen which is second to none.

This unique property offers so many opportunities for the discerning buyer. Two family homes, a family home plus a rental, or endless business opportunities in this sought after and very popular tourist location in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. You simply owe it to yourself to consider this first offered very special property and possibly your future own special piece of paradise.
