There’s an unbelievably authentic English atmosphere in this romantic 2 bedroom 2 bathroom mini mansion nestled in a sweetly fragrant country garden with roses and roses behind a pretty white picket fence. This exquisitely captivating Cotswold Cottage was lovingly hand crafted to replicate all the most enthralling features of Old World living. The cosy lounge opens through double doors to the sun drenched morning room and beyond is the protected outdoor terrace sheltered from the wind by the rustic garage.

Quaint little doorways, heavy timber beams and dreamy upstairs dormer windows combine with the timber stairway and huge old brick fireplace to create a sense of cosiness and warmth that is very difficult to create in a modern home. Polished timber floors on the upper level and quarry tiles on the ground level seem perfect with the English cottage decor and the stark white walls that echo the whitewashed interiors of an age long gone. The kitchen is traditional but practical and the bathrooms have all the comfort and facilities you would expect wrapped up in the shell of yesterday.

The garden is a story of all its own. It has been designed as an English cottage garden with little walkways between the beds and trellises for the climbing roses. Perfume is the predominant theme. Indeed, this little garden is so special that it has been used as a display garden in the Open Garden Scheme.

Imagine winter nights in “Fig Tree Cottage” with the rain beating a tune on it’s diamond pane leadlight windows while you are all cuddled up snug and cosy by the fire. Or maybe it’s a Sunday morning in summer time and you take you early morning cuppa out into the sunny sheltered courtyard where the scent of the roses and other perfumed plants mingle with the clean Mountain air to add something extra to the joy of just being alive. Breakfast can come later! When you feel the need for sustenance you can lock the door and stroll up around the corner into the bustling world of Gallery Walk with its cafes open and ready to provide a delectable Sunday morning breakfast on the table.

Does this all sound too good to be true? Not really! Not when you live in dreamy “Fig Tree Cottage” in Wongawallen Road just east of the old Moreton Bay Fig in the middle of the roundabout! You can live your dream here 365 days of the year or on wonderfully relaxing weekends and breaks from your hectic city life. You can surround yourself with the simple pleasures of quaint country cottage furnishings and thick rugs on tiled floors because the seller will include most items in the sale price. You can take a gentle stroll to MacDonnell National Park and wander down its cool green tracks where the dappled sunshine lights your way and the gaudily plumed birds of the forest are illuminated by shafts of sunlight slanting down through the canopy as they dart about in search of their own breakfast.

If you have always longed to live in an English cottage, then you’ve found the cottage of your dreams. But, if you are not quite ready yet to spend the rest of your days on Tamborine Mountain, you can still buy your dream cottage and continue to allow Lane Realty to Holiday Let it for you. It will be a successful little income spinner until you are ready to move in permanently. That way you can holiday in it yourself and use the income from it to pay most, if not all, of your mortgage. This way you will also get a tax benefit for maintenance and outgoings. We have forward bookings in place & Liz (our holiday Rental Manager) hates cancelling them!

You may never get another chance to own this unique and delightful Cotswold cottage on Tamborine Mountain, so do take the opportunity to procure this little gem while it is still available.
