A stunning property with a side hustle of llamas and a pizza yurt has hit the market in Brisbane’s north.
Made up of five luxury cottages, a herd of llamas, a “pizza yurt” and 15.38 hectares in which to roam, plus a house currently used as a manager’s residence, the property brings home the bacon so to speak, with triple income streams.
Not only do the cottages get rented out to tourists and visitors, but there was also the llama walk and seven fenced paddocks, some of which were rented out for cattle to graze.
Real estate agent Vicki Pain of Ray White Dayboro said it was a unique offering, in a good spot, offering entertainment and accommodation options for those wanting to get away to the Brisbane Hinterland.
“The previous owners set up Llama walk,” Ms Pain said. “They originally bought the top house and then purchased the bottom title and built the cabins. The views from up there are just stunning.”
Its unique features saw the Dayboro Cottages & Llama Walks star on Channel 7’s ‘The Great Day Out’ program. It has a four star rating from the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, as well as a 4.5 rating on Tripadvisor.
“It’s good for someone looking for a change of lifestyle. It’s an hour’s drive to the city, an hour to the airport and close enough for families to come out,” Ms Pain said.
One of its sources of visitors was its location close to popular venues like Ocean View — an award-winning winery, while a popular wedding venue Glengariff Estate was just opposite the property.
“It services a lot of those who come up, because we’ve got wedding venues up here with not enough accommodation for guests. The cabins are quite popular. We do get weekend people (too).”
Each cottage has a kitchenette, laundry facilities, an ensuite — one of which also has a spa bath — raked ceilings, polished floors and large balconies looking out over a panorama of the Dayboro Valley with the D’Aguilar range in the distance. Even the two-bedroom manager’s residence has a large deck and the same jawdropping views.
“Set well back from the road these bushland retreats offer perfect peace broken only by the sounds of the birds,” was how it was listed.
Apart from the llamas, there were also alpacas and agisted cattle using the pastures. The property also has a chook house, large storage shed and stable, with a spring fed dam and tank water.
Ms Pain said a separate property next door was also for sale — a hilltop farm house used by the owners.
