Few homes speaking so strongly of Tamborine Mountain’s history as this 2 storey home built by the pioneering Geissmann family in the 1960s and located in one of the 2 streets here named after them. This was a family of timber getters and saw millers to whom fine timber was a way of life and who believed in using great slabs of the very best hardwoods only. This history speaks through the walls here when you look at the strong structure and the profligate use of internal lining timbers that clearly suggest that “only the best” like Silky Oak, and probably Red Cedar, will do. Like all long term residents here, they had a fine appreciation of the value of the northerly aspect, so they built on an excellent, gently upsloping and north facing block looking down onto a treed outlook rather than houses across the street. Later on that area below the street became Geissmann Oval, but many wonderfully big trees there still provide a perfect outlook today.

Unlike many older homes, this one is full of natural light. Historic windows and period windows have been combined here to ensure that the light flows into every room and the vistas out into the mature gardens provide a green and restful scene. High ceilings, more reminiscent of the early decades of the 20th century, get added emphasis in the large upper level living area where the ceiling heights are varied. Vertical timber linings here also add to the sense of height. There is space here for real family living and relaxation with all the modern comforts, including a large white colonial kitchen with stainless steel appliances including an extra large European gas cooker to handle the biggest turkey and an extra wide stainless steel pull-out rangehood. Nobody could complain about the amount of kitchen storage or work bench space in this kitchen with its long breakfast bar. Nor could anyone complain about the size of the dining area which could easily handle a 12 seater solid timber suite from the days of yore.

The lounge area opens out through 2 sets of sliding glass doors onto the huge covered and lined front verandah that includes a matching pair of skylights in its roof. Whether you are sitting in the comfort of the lounge or out on this party sized verandah, you look right out into the canopy of the many trees in the front garden. Imagine the vista when those 2 Jacarandahs bloom in October and November! An identically sized area directly below the top verandah is another huge, protected relaxation area and an ideal wet weather play area for kids. It is really up to you whether you use the neat little painted timber shed near the back steps as a kids’ cubby house, or a great big dry and safe storeroom.

Then of course there is the studio - a rather large timber building with quaint front verandah, soundproof lining and original polished hardwood floor plus 3rd bathroom. This space is perfect for teenagers and for any budding musicians in the family, although it would also make an excellent computer room for anyone working from home.

Yes, this is a home full of unique character and monumental charm that will captivate and beguile people who dislike modern homes but still want all the comforts and pleasures they include. It will delight people who own larger solid timber furniture, antiques and especially Australiana. The ideal location in a quiet little side street with no through traffic, yet within just a couple of minutes walk of North Tamborine’s Main Street (where you can enjoy the social life of the village that revolves around the various cafes, restaurants and drinking holes and the convenience of shopping without taking the car out of its garage) is just another factor that adds to the many reasons you will want to live here.
