Honey I bought the town... (more real estate)

Recommended Posts

Wow! 
First, I'd send in the exterminators (did you SEE the size of those cobwebs?) then cleaners, then I'd look at the place again.
The blurry photos didn't help. And since when is "original outhouse" a selling point?

I think it could be lovely if renovated , and that is a lot of land for the money!

Yes, I think it could be stunning if renovated properly. I personally love that style of building, but it would be a lot, and I mean an awful lot, of work. Someone could probably flip it and do ok selling them separately.

Tbh I think it's really for someone who wants the lot to form an intentional community. I don't think any flipper would seriously recommend buying in the a*se end of nowhere with no services for some distance.

I have no idea where it is on a map (I'm really bad with geography), hence the probably could flip it. It's lovely and green there.

Oh ye gods what a dump

The hand drawn floorplans weren't selling it for me, nor the photo of the outdoor thunderbox.

Reminded me of my friends house I use to stay at for sleepovers growing up. Shudder.

Its located inland QLD near Toowoomba and Warwick. Wild horses couldn't make me buy there. Middle of nowhere, down the road from no one, right by nobody.

In this day and age, with people holidaying at home, I can see this being a lovely farmish/holiday setup.

I lived in Stanthorpe for a few years as a kid. Then again I err currently live in the Kimberleys in WA. You want remote, nothing like being 240kms from the next nearest town which is tiny anyway so we don't visit, heck it's 600kms to the nearest kmart :lol:  It hasn't been unknown for us to drive 1500kms for a 4 day getaway.

It would take me two border crossings and 1500km to get to Kooroongarra too. Youd be amazed in lockdown how driving there for a Saturday open sounds almost fun right now

I do like the name! 

The name is derived from Aboriginal words, kooroon meaning resting place for birds and garra meaning water.

So many surprises...

that lounge suite

the dunny (brings back my childhood)

the “no kids” sign

free mattress @Tessied 🤔

that horrific slide/playhouse combo and merry go round 

I was trying to find giant spider webs, missed them somehow. 
 

It looks like the next set of Silence of the Lambs or something.

Don't look too far and theres  gotta be some den or dungeon with the skin suit 🤢

 

 

The barbeque area was quaint, leaving the BBQ there in the sale is overcapitalising!

Oh my - some of those "original features" would probably sell well.

Definitely a renovators delight - or graveyard...

I love it too, saw those original external window shades and I was hooked.  

The horrors though of renovating it.  It would be a bit of deja vu for me, given the 1920 house I bought in my thirties was sold as a block of land. Three new weatherboards went on the front when the house was restumped.  The bath not only looked exactly like that, the hot water was in the roof, and having barely been used for decades, once it got down a bit dumped a huge lump of sludge on me one morning as I was showering for work. There I was, covered in sludge, no hot water left.  Part of a ceiling fell in one night after restumping, exactly a week to the hour from when my niece had been sleeping in that spot.

I do agree with pps, though, my first thought was it had a bit of a commune look about it.

It also looked like the renovator woke each day and started on a different project every day of the week, never quite finishing any.
