TANK HOUSE & STUDIO in well-established community and nature refuge in SE Qld: on this eco property abundant protected wildlife in this serene setting
Settled into the top of a hill in a private area of a multiple-occupancy property, the Tank House was designed by Riddel Architecture and completed by the current owners in 1995. The purpose-built concrete tank is earth-bermed, providing natural insulation around its external walls. Internal walls are built from Hebel block, providing additional insulation.
Designed around a sunny central courtyard protected from the elements, the three bedroom home also has a large fireplace in an open living area, gas and slow combustion stoves in the kitchen with recycled Jarrah bench tops and a huge walk-in pantry.
A deep liveable front verandah overlooks adjoining paddocks with walking tracks down to the creek.
The spacious bathroom has a deep tiled shower large enough to bath the kids.
Solar hot water system, composting toilet with a view and additional storage space, and a shed providing tool storage, car accommodation, workshop space, all in a natural bush setting.
Satellite TV and radio on the VAST service and satellite internet via NBN Sky muster and ISP.
The addition of a separate timber cabin with its own kitchenette, bathroom and composting toilet plus sunny deck and view to Mt Devlin, makes this a unique and versatile shareholding.
This home has to be experienced to appreciate the aesthetic qualities, the practical and low maintenance features and the peaceful environment in which it sits.
A permanent water supply from North and Middle Branch creeks has proven to be of unmeasurable value to Mandala residents, who have built and maintain a property-wide water system to each of the fifteen shareholdings as well as all common and utility areas.
35 minutes from Warwick, an hour to Toowoomba and Wellcamp Airport and less than 2 hours from Brisbane.
Shareholdings (home sites) at Mandala Community come with two shares in the land-owning Company.
There are no individual land titles, therefore mortgages may not be considered by a Bank.
The whole property is designated and approved (Qld Govt) as a Nature Refuge.
Naturesearch Survey November 2000 identified 15 species of frogs, 70 of birds, 22 of mammals, 17 of reptiles.
There is a Management Committee process to establish suitability for both the community and the prospective new owner, and this can take some months to complete.
