ARGYLE, locally known as ‘the big house on the hill’, is an elegant country homestead at picturesque Rosevale.
The 32 hectare (94 acre) property is within easy reach of both Brisbane and Ipswich.
Owned by Jordan and Maree Schulze, Rosevale is high quality farming land in the beautiful Scenic Rim.
Argyle adjoins the sought after cultivation pocket of this valley. This is real farm country, close to Brisbane. Argyle is said to carry 30 breeders and their calves, along with some horses.
The vast majority of the property is useable well drained chocolate and black soil country. The grasses are predominantly native and described as ideal for grazing, especially cattle. The front of the farm has specifically been set up as two horse paddocks with plain wire.
Argyle is described as a well watered property with three dams, an equipped bore and 125,000 litres of water storage. The seasonal gully has spring fed water holes, with crayfish.
The views at Argyle are superb, not only to this particular area of the Scenic Rim, but to South East Queensland itself. The views of the soft irrigated dairy country below and the Little Liverpool Range are great but it is the spectacular mountain peaks, ranges and escarpments of the Main Range National Park.
Built in 1985, the modern style homestead has a relaxed country feel and was designed to encompass the stunning views. The five bedrooms and two bathrooms make this an ideal family home. The beautiful polished cypress pine floors are a real feature, as is the black pot belly fireplace. Verandahs wrap around on three sides and offer both sun and shade in all seasons.
There is an in-ground pool set among landscaped rock gardens, alongside a large undercover entertaining area. Originally constructed as a stage with lighting, access to the homestead is by a timber boardwalk. It is an ideal area for large family gatherings and meals.
Other improvements include a three bay vehicle and storage shed, and a small machinery shed. There is good vehicle access around the 32ha property via the well maintained existing tracks.
Argyle will be auctioned by Ray White Rural in Brisbane on September 21. Inspections are on Sundays by from 10.30am to 11.30am, or by appointment.
