"Maringa" Timeless Grace & Elegance! Plus Separate family Home!
Located in arguably Maleny's most prestigious street, is Maringa, a gracious Queenslander circa 1922, plus with a charming post-war family home, idea for home office or dual living on a glorious parklike 2927m2 corner block with two separate driveways and lush leafy gardens, the type of property so many hinterland buyers seek, yet so rarely find!
Maringa, relocated to this site in 2009 from Newmarket, was originally owned by coach and tram builders, rich in history, if only walls could talk, think of the stories and wisdom they could impart!
Highset, it is complete with three bedrooms, one bathroom plus powder room off master bedroom with toilet & hand basin, formal and informal living plus office/sunroom, Caesarstone kitchen, wraparound verandah, single carport with drive-through access to rear, and masses of storage under.
All the features that make this vintage of home so elegant and timelessly adored are present including 10-foot ceilings, wide board hoop pine floors, cedar archways plus original silky oak cabinetry in dining and lounge, wide hallway, original windows with coloured panes and stained glass, claw foot bath, antique style pedestal basin, antique Art Deco lights, VJ panels and walls, French doors, 2 x combustion fireplaces, and decorative fretwork.
Other features of note include gas cooktop, insulated ceilings, 5.7kW solar system with inverter under house, Taylex water treatment plant on main home, septic on cottage, 2 x 22,500 litre poly tanks, bore, electric hot water for cottage and gas hot water for home.
Maringa second home, circa 1950's, currently generates an attractive income via Airbnb; or your own home office and is complete with three bedrooms, modern renovated bathroom, two toilets, kitchen with timber benches, one living area with combustion fireplace, new front and rear timber decks, plus two car parking and storage under.
With both homes fully self-contained, not only is there the potential (currently realised) to generate an income stream, or dual living for the extended family.
The grounds are flat, beautifully manicured with established trees and colouring plants and flowering shrubs, and the outlook from the north facing verandah of the main house is resplendent! Whether enjoying a high-tea, a twilight bubbles soaking up the gentle breezes, a morning coffee, or a family BBQ - the verandah can accommodate all occasions with impeccable style and panache.
Located within 6 minutes' drive to Maleny town centre with its many amenities including dining, commercial, retail, galleries, parks, schools, hospital/medical, and sporting facilities; and 35 minutes to the coast. This is a location and lifestyle to savour, with a classic residence and charming cottage that will continue to age graciously and with dignity.
