“Yooroona” is an historic Tamborine Mountain home built by the Curtis family (one of the early original families to settle on Mt. Tamborine) on this land from locally milled hardwoods from their own saw mill in the early 1920’s. The north facing 26 square, 2 level home has been loved and gently modernised over the years while still retaining the unique charm and character of those homes built in the early decades of the 20th century. All those much loved features are here including 11 foot tall VJ ceilings, VJ timber walls, fanlights and polished hardwood floors. These features blend perfectly with the updating for modern living including the excellent blue kitchen with its solid timber bench tops. No wonder the sellers chose blue! When you see the rare and superb blue glass woodlight windows in the kitchen you know immediately that the kitchen had to be blue.

The home is sheltered from the street by a white picket fence and a dense row of trees and shrubs right across the front boundary. When you open the front gate and walk along the path you are greeted by a magic paved terrace that flows right across the front of the home. This is no small family outdoor living but rather, a spot to gather friends and family by the dozen to have a big gathering. The front entry door is to the left. it opens into a large tiled entry foyer that gives access to the modern self-contained unit on the ground level and also to the stairs up to the front verandah and the original front door of the home. Tree filtered sunlight dance across the verandah during the day so that it is both sunny and shady at the same time.

A new roof was installed in recent years and the home has been extremely well loved and maintained under the current owners stewardship. The old established gardens with massive deciduous trees, rainforest trees, gigantic palms, flowering shrubs such as huge camellias, and areas of open lawn have been improved and added to over the past 15 years to create an awesome setting for the house. A gigantic shed hidden by gardens stretches along the back fence. This shed was used to build the hull of a fibre glass yacht about 25 years ago. A more modern little Alpine style guest chalet also hides in the rear garden with its steep roofline rising above the shrubbery.

“Yooroona” can be purchased separately or with the adjoining wedding chapel & reception venue - see details here for purchasing entire property.
