Auction action: the ‘out of this world’ sanctuary with some tramendous accommodation options

A boutique hinterland getaway with eccentric living has been labelled one of a kind, ahead of its expected sale.

No. 171 Ewarts Road, Cooran, was passed in at $3.5m on Friday and was expected to sell within days, after it received significant post-auction interest.

Rosecliffe Boutique Farm Cottages boasts some bold and unique features, aside from its centrepiece, a 1900s Queenslander.

The 93-acre hilltop property has four other accommodation options, including an original Melbourne tram, a Sydney bus and two cottages.

A Queenslander, more than 100 years old, is at the heart of the property.

The Licensed Real Estate Agent at Wythes Real Estate – Noosa Hinterland Alise Wythes, said it was an “amazing” and rare property.

“It’s out of this world,” she said. “In my 18 years of selling real estate, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

The property is perched high above the rolling green hills of Pinbareen Valley, surrounded by nature.

The homestead was built in the early 20th century and was relocated from Brisbane. It still has charm and character but has been revamped with all the mod cons.

But it’s the alternative living options that set the property apart.

“The amazing original Melbourne tram has been fully refurbished, as has the bus,” Ms Wythes said.

The arrangements boast almost everything one could need, including a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen settings.

The tram boasts almost everything you need.

The bus is stationed at a ‘bus stop’ with extra amenities.

There are also two other cottages, infinity waterfall pool, running creek, dam, Olympic-sized arena, stables and barn.

There are views from Double Island Point to Noosa and across sweeping hills.

“I reckon I’ll get an offer in the next couple of days because (post-auction) interest has been really good,” Ms Wythes said.

The property has been owned, operated, and hosted by Nadia Bellerby for the past 30 years, but she is moving to South Australia and is ready to hand it over to someone else.

“She bought it when she was 21, as a block of land, and has built everything there,” Ms Wythes said.

“She’s an incredibly creative woman, who has created something very special.”

Ms Wythes said the property could continue to be utilised as a holiday destination or it could become someone’s private residence.

The lay of the land, including all accommodation options.

“It’s been such a successful business,” she said.

“It has run at 95 per cent capacity … you can’t get in there. So, there is some potential to expand and build even more accommodation because the demand is certainly there, providing it is approved by council.

“Or you could just live there and enjoy it as it is, or make your own changes.”

The property welcomed the crew from television show Creek to Coast recently and it’s expected to be showcased in November.
