Invest in a piece of local history. Established in 1914, Abbeywood School opened with 30 students. Abbeywood was given its name by the school inspector, Mr Fox, after the suburb of London which was his home before coming to Australia. Abbeywood School closed in December 1969.
Over the last 6 years the current owners have transformed this cute country cottage school into a beautiful off grid home. Your fridge and cooking is by gas, heated with an Australian made Nectre wood heater. Electricity to run your lights and power points comes from the 4 x 300w solar panels and a bank of 8 x batteries. Water is supplied from your 4 x water tanks!
If you love pottering around in the garden or building and restoring furniture, the beautifully manicured gardens and plenty of sheds will keep you enthralled for hours on end. You will find a 5 bay colourbond shed which has two lock up roller doors, 2 open bays and a workshop area plus a drive through caravan shed. Keeping a horse or cow won't be a problem as this property also has a large paddock plus animal yards and shelter for keeping sheep or goats. Taps are conveniently located through the property for easy water access.
On the old school tennis court you will find a well laid out area where the chemical-free well constructed vegetable gardens, pineapple patch and rosemary hedge are situated. The netted orchard next to the large shed has approximately 19 varieties of different fruit trees, all grown in the rich red soil of the South Burnett.
Presented at $369,000.00.
This renovated home is definitely something to admire from the minute you walk through the old school gate.
Enjoy the country life with this beautiful property that is ready to move into.
