THE Turkington family's impressive Wattle Brae Homestead at Pilton has been sold.

While no price has been disclosed, the sale follows an expression of interest process, which closed on October 28.

The buyer is a South West Queensland family.

Locatedat Pilton - 40km from Toowoomba and 45km from Warwick - the scenic 99 hectare (246 acre) property is in two freehold lots.

Wattle Brae Homestead was designed by renowned architect Ron Johnson, who delivered a spacious home to cater for family living and large entertaining events.

The home has four bedrooms. The very large main bedroom is positioned to enjoy the north easterly conditions. There is also a large upstairs office, guest bedroom and ensuite.

The kitchen features tallow and ironbark beams from the Stradbroke Wharf.

All of the rooms open onto a large paved area, adjacent to the heated pool and covered sitting area.

The home is set in a slightly elevated, park-like garden setting with sweeping views to the Great Dividing Range to the north east and views over the property and surrounding countryside.

Wattle Brae ranges from about 40ha of dark to chocolate soils, rising to gentle elevated mountain coolibah, box and gum grazing country.

There are seven paddocks of various sizes, with fencing designed for horses.

Horse facilities include a floodlit dressage arena, and three 4x4m stables, equipped with a feed and tack room, and a concrete wash bay.

Held by the Turkington family for five generations, Wattle Brae Homestead was first purchased in 1910.

The marketing of Wattle Brae was handled by Trevor Leishman and Sue Edwards from Elders Toowoomba.
