House Sold - Oakenden QLD

The opportunity to enjoy a peaceful and relaxed rural lifestyle within 20mins drive of Mackay is a popular choice for Buyers seeking a change in pace, without losing the convenience of living close to the city. You’ll be drawn to this large and solidly constructed brick home that has retained its country character and homely feel. Presented on 6.79acres with an elevated easterly aspect, gentle undulation and set well back from the road, this property exemplifies discreet acreage living.

The home’s wide and inviting entry opens to two separate living zones and large country-style timber kitchen at its heart. All living zones look out over the full wrap-around verandah, stunning mineral pool and pavilion (with a very handy built-in bar fridge!), fenced level lawns, and elevated bush surrounds. You can swim, barbeque, cook and relax all at the same time in one big space. All 4 bedrooms are big with the ability to fit a queen in each of the minor bedrooms and king to the main bedroom. Plus, the separate full-size office has its own separate access, handy if you run a business from home.

We love the relaxed and picturesque drive from town to Oakenden and this property is set amongst a small cluster of acreages dotted along the private and quiet Shackleton Road. Worth taking the time to inspect. Join us at the Open Home and flexible personal viewing times are available.
