A MASSIVE 67 hectare estate an hour north of the Brisbane CBD has sold under the hammer for a “knockdown” $1.95 million — averaging $2.90 a square metre.
The property called Haranel in Mount Mee attracted over 100 enquiries over four weeks, with 55 groups then going on to inspect it, according to agents Ray White Rural Brisbane’s Jez McNamara and Barry Quinn who marketed the property along with Vicki Pain of Ray White Rural Dayboro.
All up that saw 670,000 square metres go under the hammer with a stunning designer Queenslander and a host of other features, with the owner accepting a “knockdown price” of $1.95m.
Four bidders registered for the auction which included one interstate buyer and one international, with the buyer ultimately coming out of Brisbane.
The homestead built five years ago has pride of place at the top of large level plateau 1600 feel above sea level with “views in all directions”.
“It was these stunning views that inspired the owner’s dream to design and build a special home that would both encapsulate the magnificent views but also to share with a large extended family and their many guests.”
The property was listed as “all ex dairy country and ideal for cattle grazing and fattening. The lush pastures can comfortably run 80 plus breeders plus calves year-round”.
It also has a swimming pool with spa, steel cattle yards, a spring fed creek perfect for picnics, a small natural waterfall and a large six bay shed that has a two storey, two bedroom, fully self-contained managers’ quarters.
“A family favourite activity is a campfire and picnic down by the quiet and shady waterfall, the trickle of the water so soothing and restful and ideal on a hot summer’s day for a swim,” the listing said.
The agents said the owners had already bought elsewhere when the property went to auction.
The massive property is one of four like it that Ray White Rural Brisbane has sold at Mount Mee in the past two years, the firm said.
