Best of Tweed Valley views
PLUMBER Mark Foster with his partner high school teacher Julie Harrold have put their magnificent home up for sale to caravan around Australia.
The couple helped to design the spacious three-bedroom, craftsman-built home before moving into it in 2004.
Set high on a 2100 sq m block on the ridge at Farrants Hill, the house soaks up 270 degree hinterland and coastline views.
All the details have been looked after in the design of this executive home, which features spotted gum flooring, an in-ground salt-water pool and resort-style spa bath in the roomy master bedroom ensuite.
Mr Foster said the couple chose the block, only 20 minutes to Gold Coast Airport, for its privacy and fitted it with a sound system, ready for you to plug in.
“It’s for the love of music,” Mr Foster said. “We’re little rockers and enjoy music for all different occasions, like when we’re working outdoors and we’ve got two music speakers outside in the pool area.”
The spacious open plan design with high ceilings and features a gourmet kitchen with stone benchtops.
A generous north-easterly verandah provides a perfect setting for alfresco dining.
The 300 sq m yard is fully enclosed with established low maintenance gardens and a full irrigation system.
“We’re surrounded by large acreage lots and have only got three neighbours, so you feel like it’s very, very private,” Mr Foster said.
“It’s very quiet, so if you feel like relaxing or entertaining it ticks all the boxes.”
