Hidden from the road in a peaceful pocket the only sound you will hear is that of nature's own amphitheatre of native birds caroling.

This exclusive mountain retreat was originally built by writer & poet Barbara Blackman (whom was previously married to artist Charles Blackman) & her then partner Marcel Veldhoven as a nurturing escape.

Evolved from the land itself the home is hand built and integrates the tapestry of textures such as mud bricks, paddock rocks, local timber and unique temple like roof line makes Indooroopilly one of the most interesting and individual places in the area.

On the property there is a main house plus an additional cottage. The main house has recently been extensively renovated and now consists of 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, customised kitchen, lounge and dining. There is also an additional Auditorium within the main house that makes for a perfect alternative entertaining space, a kids getaway, or even a conference area.

Outside there is a great cubby house, kids swing set, trampoline and a fully fenced pool.

The cottage consists of 1 main bedroom, 1 Loft bedroom with adjoining balcony, plus a fold out couch (suitable for kids).

One of Berry's finest holiday homes - Indooroopilly cultivates a retreat to sooth the soul.

Client Testimonal:
"Just wanted to drop you a quick message... Firstly, we had such a fantastic time - everyone absolutely loved the place. All of us do quite a lot of travelling both in Australia and overseas, and it was the first time in ages that our expectations were exceeded in terms of pictures on the website vs reality when we got there. We really had to force ourselves to leave yesterday afternoon, after seriously contemplating phoning your office to ask if we could extend our stay by another night. Unfortunately everyone is busy at the moment so work spoiled that idea.

Thanks again - please pass on our appreciation to the owner.
