Living in the Hinterland
Buderim is about an hour and fifteen minutes north of Brisbane and 45 minutes from Noosa Heads. It sits overlooking the Sunshine Coast in a region filled with waterfalls, verdant forests, birds and wildlife. Founded in 1860, Buderim was the first European settlement on the Sunshine Coast and the volcanic soil yielded everything from bananas to coffee. The largest ginger processing factory in the southern hemisphere was built in neighbouring Yandina in the 1940s, and the area around Buderim was once home to the region’s famous ginger farms.
These days, Buderim Mountain is a thriving community with excellent schools and a multitude of first-class facilities. People come here to get married in the great outdoors, walk in the Buderim forest, enjoy a gourmet meal or attend the region’s many special events and fairs. With the beach at Mooloolaba just minutes away, you get the best of both worlds with spectacular coastal views and no end of watersports, golf and fishing. Buderim is an all-in-one outdoor paradise, whether you’re looking for trees, sand, or a nice glass of wine in an unbeatable Sunshine Coast setting.
If you feel like a field trip, the boutique shopping, beaches and scenic vistas of Noosa are only 45 minutes down the road and on the way, you’ll pass endless golf courses, attractions and open markets. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up in the morning and find your biggest challenge is deciding whether to head for the beach or the bush?
The Home in Buderim
This classic Queenslander has terrific curb appeal, set well back from the road with clean lines and a wrap-around front verandah with polished timbered floors. The entryway leads into the central living area that is sectioned off with unobtrusive partitions, preserving the abundant natural light and spaciousness of this elegant room. It incorporates a dining area, a cozy lounge with a large flat screen television and built-in bookcases, and a sleek kitchen with adjoining butler’s pantry. To the left of the entrance, there’s a second enclosed living room with a fireplace. In case you need to do a little work from home or check your social media, there are study nooks on either side of the main living area. A large media room with plush seating gives you a comfy place to curl up with a film or indulge in your favourite hobby.
The sumptuous master suite has an enormous walk-in robe and a lovely ensuite. The deep soaking tub opens onto the verandah in case you want to listen to the birds when you’re enjoying a bubble-bath. The three additional bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home, and one has its own ensuite. The main bathroom has a tub with jacuzzi jets and a walk-in shower.
With the exception of the fourth bedroom, every room in the home opens onto the verandah or covered alfresco. The home is built into the side of a small grade, elevating the rear above a double carport and large recreational space beneath the alfresco. The massive forested lot is a true oasis with a small pond, stone pathways and pocket lawns. You’ve even got your own chicken coop if you feel like having a never-ending supply of fresh eggs.
This really is a hinterland sanctuary and with another $20,000 in gold bullion thrown in, you can even afford a new vehicle to get you there. With the winning ticket in draw 487, you could soon be calling Buderim home.
