Foldable timber shack sells for more than $1.5 million in Queensland

A buyer has handed over more than $1.5 million to secure a foldable cabin in idyllic rural Queensland.

The property at 825 Maleny Kenilworth Road, Elaman Creek, is situated on a 175-acre parcel of land, and what makes it truly unique is its compact and transportable design.

Sold for $1.52 million earlier this month, the hardwood timber cabin sleeps four people and can be transported around the grounds with its “fold-down awning and deck”.

There are no inside shots of the shack on the listing by Jason Bartholomew of Maleny Realty. However, it does have off-grid power and there is a composting toilet on site.

The 175-acre block of land with its cosy cabin is described on the listing as the ultimate “hinterland weekender” that offers “total privacy and seclusion.

Elaman Creek is a rural locale in the Sunshine Coast Region, about 87km from Brisbane.

It offers peace and serenity with a population of just 55, and an average age demographic of 40 to 59 years.

Caloundra’s popular beaches are approximately a 50-minute drive away, while a trip to the local shops is just a 10-minute trip.

The buyer will be able to enjoy the rainforest and bushland setting, as well as the creek, swimming hole, horse and motorbike trails on site.

Agent Jason Bartholomew suggests there is “plenty of Instagrammable material” should the buyer be that way inclined, as well as potential to build onto the site.
