The running theme of 2020/2021 has been to keep your distance from others. For those who have the requisite funds, keeping a safe distance entails exceptional real estate perched amongst the clouds, like the breathtaking Maleny hinterland palace: Two Roads.
Described as an exceedingly modern, grand-scale masterpiece, this award-winning residence is – without a doubt – one of Australia’s best hinterland escapes, converted from a century-old farm into the sumptuous homestead you see today. Overlooking the Witta and Curramore ranges within Queensland’s Sunshine Coast with picture perfect north-facing views, its vantage point is certainly anything but ordinary.
Set upon a considerable 74.8-hectare parcel of primo Aussie land surrounded in lush greenery and manicured lawns, the elevated Two Roads home itself offers 1,500 square metres, six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and countless living / entertaining areas – rich with New Guinea Rosewood, dark-stained hardwood, polished concrete, and extensive hand-laid stone-pitched walls.
As one would expect from a dwelling of this calibre, the usual run of staple amenities included range from a heated pool, temperature-controlled wine cellar (1,000 bottle capacity), gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry, rumpus room, library, office, fireplace, to somewhere with some sexy design to unwind, take a bath, forget the world, etc.
Other notable features – which aren’t exactly staple amenities in every high-end pad – are as follows:
- Full-sized tennis court w/ flood lighting & spectator seating
- Commercial-sized gym
- Olympic-sized dressage arena
- Native rainforests w/ multiple waterfalls & swimming holes
- Kilometres of walking tracks
- 2 x self-contained luxury eco cabins
- Renovated 3-bedroom manager’s cottage
- Working farm facility w/ 45 cattle, 5 horses, multiple pasture-improved paddocks, stockyards, sheds, machinery
- Helicopter landing site
- 7-car garage
“Nothing can quite describe how it feels to be standing at Two Roads, surrounded by some of the most stunning natural landscape in Australia – among the clouds, in absolute peace and privacy, almost 2,000 feet above sea level,” explains Brook Monahan of Mosaic Property Group, who currently resides here with his wife Kathryn and four children.
“We are close to so much, yet it feels like you are a million miles away. Everything about it has been planned, designed, built, and finished with clear, meticulous intent to achieve… what I believe to be, an amazing and privileged living experience.”
This occasion marks the very first time Two Roads has ever been available to purchase, meaning the matter of dollars + cents is currently unclear. But safe to say, it certainly won’t be cheap. Excellence, after all, often comes with a price.
