Two Roads is a peerless, multi award-winning masterpiece of grand scale set on 185 acres of the Queensland Sunshine Coast’s hinterland.

Located in the hills behind Maleny, it is the first time the HIA 2016 Queensland Home of the Year has been offered to the market.

Boasting an intense sense of privacy – with views over the Witta and Curramore Ranges – the 15000sqm, 6-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 7-car garage home is a mere seven-minute drive from the heart of Maleny.

Taking its design cues from the opulent retreats found on the South Island of New Zealand, the exterior of the home sees Alpine granite and Buffalo granite used as the prevailing materials.

Inside, the home uses a select palette of polished concrete and stained hardwood flooring alongside New Guinea Rosewood feature ceilings and dark-stained hardwood shiplap cladding.

The kitchen features European appliances and a polished concrete benchtop with a separate concealed butler’s pantry adjacent.

Large glass doors combine the indoors to the outdoors, with the wraparound veranda, alfresco dining area and large pool featured outside.

Throughout the home one can expect a plethora of living and entertaining spaces – including a large games room and commercial sized gym – office, library guest room and temperature-controlled 1000 bottle wine cellar.

Adding elevated appeal to the home is the use of gas fireplaces dotted throughout the home.

Solar panels are used throughout the property to heat the alongside and Envirocycle system and rainwater tanks capable of holding 300,000 litres to ensure the home tracks towards becoming environmentally neutral.

Further, the grounds are privy to a full-size floodlit tennis court with spectator seating, Olympic size dressage area and helicopter landing site.

These features are further coupled with two self-contained luxury eco-cabins and a renovated 3-bedroom manager’s cottage.

Elsewhere on the property is manicured gardens, pastures, native rainforest, kilometres of walking trails, multiple waterfalls and swimming holes.

As a working farm, it currently has 45 head of cattle, five horses and stockyard, sheds and machinery.

There are few properties in Australia like it.

The listing is with Mosaic Property Group’s Deon Calder (+61 400 551 635); POA.

Amid looming rate rises, there are reasons to be cheerful as mortgage holders head into 2023

Mon, Feb 6, 2023 2 min

Mortgage holders should brace themselves for more pain as the Reserve Bank of Australia board prepares to meet tomorrow for the first time this year.

Most economists and the major banks are predicting a rise of 25 basis points will be announced, although the Commonwealth Bank suggests that the RBA may take the unusual step of a 40 basis point rise to bring the interest rate up to a more conventional 3.5 percent. This would allow the RBA to step back from further rate rises for the next few months as it assesses the impact of tightening monetary policy on the economy.

The decision by the RBA board to make consecutive rate rises since April last year is an attempt to wrestle inflation down to a more manageable 3 or 4 percent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that the inflation rate rose to 7.8 percent over the December quarter, the highest it has been since 1990, reflected in higher prices for food, fuel and construction.

Higher interest rates have coincided with falling home values, which Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee says are down 6.1 percent in capital cities since peaking in March 2022. The pain has been greatest in Sydney, where prices have dropped 10.8 percent since February last year. Melbourne and Canberra recorded similar, albeit smaller falls, while capitals like Adelaide, which saw property prices fall 1.8 percent, are less affected.

Although prices may continue to decline, Ms Conisbee (below) said there are signs the pace is slowing and that inflation has peaked.

“December inflation came in at 7.8 per cent with construction, travel and electricity costs being the biggest drivers. It is likely that we are now at peak,” Ms Conisbee said. 

“Many of the drivers of high prices are starting to be resolved. Shipping costs are now down almost 90 per cent from their October 2021 peak (as measured by the Baltic Dry Index), while crude oil prices have almost halved from March 2022. China is back open and international migration has started up again. 

“Even construction costs look like they are close to plateau. Importantly, US inflation has pulled back from its peak of 9.1 per cent in June to 6.5 per cent in December, with many of the drivers of inflation in this country similar to Australia.”
