Description: Very seldom does a property of such historical significance as Perren Manor get presented to the market; this gracious 1913 Queenslander built by the son of William and Emma Perren, a local pioneering family, originally on a 337-acre parcel of farmland, it remains on its original house site - now a 958m2 block in Rosemount Rise.
Meticulously maintained and lovingly restored it is filled with the old-world grace and elegance of its vintage whilst also offering modern comforts and a family-friendly floor plan with dual living potential - the best of both worlds colliding to create something truly magnificent.
Across two levels it comprises five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, kitchen plus dry kitchenette, office, wraparound veranda showcasing elevated hinterland views sweeping from the range in the west across to the north, and double lock-up garage.
High ceilings, VJ walls, polished hardwood floors, casement windows, French doors, decorative fretwork, clawfoot bath and pedestal basin in main bathroom, transom windows and breezeways - are all traditional period features, timeless in their appeal, that infuse the residence with character and warmth.
Other notable features include ceiling fans, air-conditioning, gas cooktop, saltwater inground pool, 6.6kW Canadian solar system, 10,000-litre water tank, high pressure town water, fast NBN connection, septic system (can be converted), and lush manicured gardens with a variety of mature fruit bearing trees providing fresh produce from garden to table.
The original owners, William and Emma, had 12 children and many of their descendants still live in the area; such was their standing in the community that the Governor of Queensland attended their Golden Wedding Anniversary. They initially farmed corn and potato on the land, then later sugar cane for the Nambour mill.
This is a residence steeped in history with a well-documented narrative - in the boutique Rosemount Rise estate (with streets named after family members), just two-minutes to town, and 15 minutes to coast beaches and the airport. What a gem of a find!
