Rarely do a business, home and location so perfectly mesh as with the Eltham Valley Pantry, providing a lifestyle and/or investment opportunity that is solidly established as well as suitable for new ideas and expansion.

The Northern Rivers region is one of Australia’s most desirable locations, and the Eltham Valley Pantry part of the vibrant village culture shared by Bangalow, Clunes and other small towns that boast fine dining, and appreciation of the arts and the finer things in life.

Set in the historic and picturesque Eltham Valley, nestled between the vibrant seaside town of Byron Bay and the growing regional hub of Lismore, the award winning Eltham Valley Pantry enjoys a reputation for excellent, locally sourced food served in beautifully renovated farmhouse with a large commercial kitchen and seating for 88 diners.

As an established, highly regarded farm and hospitality business, the Eltham Valley Pantry encompasses 20 acres of rich agricultural land with some 440 metres of lovely Wilson River frontage.  While the emphasis is currently on the vibrant, busy breakfast and lunch business, the property comes with a working pecan farm with over 300 mature trees, and a pecan processing factory with cool room, drying room dehumidifier, silo and all necessary equipment to process up to 40 tonnes of nuts.

Sanquhar – something special in Noosa

With the recent attention on Noosa as one of Australia’s most desirable locations, Sanquhar stands out as something very special indeed.  This serenely private, stunning five-bedroom home has some of the best views on the entire Queensland coast and is just 10 minutes from the heart of Noosa.
Sanquhar's swimming pool and entertainment areas
Sanquhar is one of those  rare, perfect marriages of built and natural environments, a home that invites the gorgeous  ocean and hinterland views into a casually elegant interior where rich timber tones accentuate bright open spaces and the charm of an old Queenslander takes on a crisp contemporary elegance.

A gum-lined driveway off a rolling pastoral landscape sets the tone as you approach the main house and an ample three car garage. Atop the garage sits a large sprawling loft currently set up as an open entertainment area. A separate guest bedroom with ensuite and private balcony taking in Coral Sea vistas completes this charming building.

Connected by a covered walkway, the main house combines contemporary flair with warm, country charm and an overriding feeling of quiet confidence. Surrounded by shaded verandas with polished timber decks and priceless views, Sanquhar is breathtaking and breezy, maintaining many of the features of a traditional Queenslander with a clean, modern style that makes use of ample light to highlight a bright, spacious interior that feels open yet intimate.
Sanquhar's cosy, contemporary, comfortable lounge
The comfortable casual lounge and dining area has an open fireplace and sweeping views to create a restful ambience, and the adjoining spacious open kitchen invites entertaining as well as culinary inspiration.

For more formal entertaining and gatherings, the main lounge features a beautiful timber table with seating for 14 people, and a Jetmaster fireplace as the cosy central focus of a spacious sitting room opening out onto another veranda overlooking the pool.  Whether relaxing in the shade or enjoying a swim, the views are magnificent.

All four bedrooms in the main house have their own ensuites and, with large windows and French doors opening onto the verandas, enjoy ample light and their own lovely views. A comfortable study and enclosed laundry are quietly tucked away.

Sitting atop a ridge, Sanquhar’s perfectly manicured two acres are set off by lovely gardens and a full sized tennis court with views that make it hard to keep an eye on the ball but offer extra incentive to spend more time outdoors.
Tennis anyone? It's 'love all' at Sanquhar in Noosa
With such a sense of secluded, private enjoyment it’s hard to believe that Sanquhar is a mere ten minute drive to the heart of Noosa with its fine dining, sophisticated shopping and eclectic nightlife. With Brisbane less than a two hour drive away, and the Sunshine Coast Airport at Maroochydore only  a half hour away, it is no wonder that Noosa continues to attract people looking for a lifestyle that is becoming more precious as opportunities such as Sanquhar become increasingly rare.

Stunning views of Sanquhar and the Noosa Hinterland

To fully appreciate Sanquhar and its exquisite environs, contact Nicolette van Wijngaarden at Unique Estates to arrange a private inspection.

Artist Ken Johnson puts Incatrole up For Sale

Incatrole, an exquisite Northern Rivers luxury estate, is Australian Artist Ken Johnson’s masterwork where his home and art blend harmoniously. The eclectic influences of Spanish, Rajasthan, Moroccan and Mexican design and décor create a lively backdrop to Ken’s own paintings and sculptures.

There’s a warmth and feeling that Ken’s artistic inspiration and creations all live happily together under one roof. Incatrole in fact encompasses much more than one roof. The main house is laid out around the Moorish style courtyard pool and a covered patio dining area leads to Ken’s painting studio. A walk through the subtropical gardens takes you past a separate guest cottage and across to a marvelous barn turned sculpture studio.

The views from Incatrole’s enormous kitchen and entertaining areas take in the panorama of Byron Bay hinterland just 20 minutes from the famous surf beaches. Many forms of wildlife wander through the extensive property and platypus play in the large pond that attracts birds from jabirus to black swans.

Ken has and continues to travel widely, with this year seeing him off to teach and exhibit in Norway, UK and Italy before returning to a project that has touched his heart – building a medical clinic in a small village at the foot of the Himalayas. Many villagers in the area had to walk for days to receive treatment, but thanks to Ken’s high profile fund raising efforts, they now have access to doctors nearby. Ken’s passion to help doesn’t end there. He has plans for an orphanage and school where students can train as sculptors.
