‘No comparison’: Landmark estate hits the market
A FORMER dairy farm transformed into a “spellbinding” multimillion-dollar property has come onto the market for just the third time in its life.
Kiamba Estate, an 11-bedroom property at 53 Upper Hutton Rd, Kiamba, has been held by three successive family generations for the past 100 years.
Ken Guy Buderim principal Danny Redman said the property has “no comparison” on the Sunshine Coast.
The property is marketed without a price and available by expressions of interest only, which close on January 24.
Mr Redman said the suburb of Kiamba was a sleeping giant of the region.
“A lot of people think Kiamba is central coast of New South Wales when they see the suburb, it is largely unknown,” Mr Redman said.
“People think you have to go over the back of the range to find this exclusive lifestyle, but it’s just 17 minutes from Buderim.
“I am in my 40th year of real estate and I’ve seen nothing like it.”
The estate was originally owned by dairy farmers who used the land as their winter feed area before it changed hands in the 1980s.
The current owners discovered their uncapped potential for design when they purchased the property and added “significant” touches to the sanctuary.
Mr Redman said the current owners established their young family on the Coast but are selling due to business opportunities in Melbourne and Brisbane.
The property sits on 56ha and encompasses three separate dwellings, the main on 1006sq m.
Other features include 5km of bushwalking, riding and vehicle tracks, a private lake and an in ground trampoline.
“The current owners really put their stamp on the property, and have done an amazing job,” he said.
“One of the owners realised she had an amazing platform to exercise her creative flair.”
He said potential buyers would quickly realise the unique opportunity.
“It’s a landmark property. There’s a lot high-end investment directed to the northern end (of the Coast) and ‘Kiamba Estate’ is equally exceptional.”
The property has 2.5km of Maroochy River frontage and bordered by state forest offering “absolute privacy”.
