Here’s something very unique.
In the hills outside Brisbane, Australia, there is an area called Pine Mountain.
Here you will find Stokes Cottage – a rare surviving part of Pine Mountain Colonial history.
Situated on 8.65 acres, Stokes Cottage was built by Edward Stokes for his wife and children after he purchased the land in 1865.
The property remained in the stokes family for the next 116 years.
The country church building which now makes up the central part of the ‘Stokes Cottage’ property was built in 1901 at Deep Creek in the Brisbane valley.
The church was much later sold at auction to the current owners who had it moved and incorporated into the Stokes Cottage compound.
Have a look inside…
The former church has been meticulously renovated into a fabulous living space that still retains many of its church features.
Isn’t it stunning?
Stokes Cottage is being offered for auction in mid-February. No word on a starting bid price.
It features a high cathedral ceiling and mezzanine bedroom in what was once a choir loft.
Beneath the loft is the kitchen and bathroom.
Apart from the large loft bedroom, there is also a bonus office room…
The former church is joined by breezeways to the other living spaces that make up Stokes Cottage.
There is also an entertainment pavilion complete with surround sound and feature lighting.
Adjoining the old church, there is a restored 2-bedroom cottage with a study that could be used as a third bedroom.
The master suite includes a lounge room with an open brick fireplace and veranda at the front.
This unique property offers a fascinating combination of colonial history and a beautiful rural environment.
Other features of the farmstead include: a barn, workshop, 3 stables, garden shed & greenhouse as well as a lighted tennis court.
What a stunning place for some lucky bidder in the Land Down Under!
