Marshmallows, corn on the cob and damper, all cooked over an outdoor fire on a cold, winter night. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? That’s what I was thinking about this morning when I stumbled upon this country Queenslander in the Scenic Rim, about two hours south west of Brisbane.

Plus there is this view. From your home. Mountains and sky.

So good, SO GOOD.

Guess what, there are two colonial cottages also on the nearly 45 acres!

Did I mention that this house was not for sale? I know, and I’m sorry. But we can still dream together. So, let’s keep going. Sitting on our (hahah) verandah with a cold drink on a hot day or a cup of tea on a cold, drizzly morning. Yup, that’s a very blurry wallaby sitting out on the grass.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of the property. Remember, it is almost 45 acres, so this is just the ‘house’ paddock. The two little cottages would be perfect for friends or perhaps even as an airbnb rental for the weddings that can be held on this beautiful property.

A close up of the cottage shows us just how charming and adorable she is. And remember THERE ARE TWO OF THEM.

Let’s step inside for a moment. With so much space surrounding the home, the light makes its way freely inside.

A homestead style kitchen goes perfectly with the aesthetic of this home. I love the timber bench tops with the white cabinetry.

Heading back outside, the long drive way really shows how much room there is surrounding the main paddock.

I love the thought of taking the kids down to the dam with fishing rods in hand and making an afternoon of it. Complete with a picnic basket and some books.

Finally, afternoons with friends outside.

With all of the recent upheaval to our lives with COVID-19, it’s been nice to dream of a life where being isolated is not such a bad thing. I hope that you enjoyed coming along this ride with me and this, the perfect country Queenslander.
