It comes with a raft of features including a lunch room, study halls, animal shelters and horse yards.“This is a rare property with huge upside potential,” Mr Thomas said.“It’s a blank canvas for someone with a unique vision as there is plenty of flat land available to make further improvements and take this property to an entirely new level.”Mystery Mountain was developed by Jan and Garth Keppie, who bought the property in 1999 when it was a humble farm with a small rural residence offering spectacular views of the Coast. Check out those views from the deck. The couple enlisted architect Daryl Brown, of Burling Brown Architects, to design a new farmhouse to accommodate a major farm-stay business.The property comes fully equipped for the farm-stay market with amenities to accommodate up to 50 guests, including a lunch room, living areas, study halls and toilet and shower facilities.The nine-bedroom, 14-bathroom homestead comes with a fully equipped kitchen.“As a going concern, there is nothing of this scale available on the Gold Coast as a farm-stay facility,” Mr Thomas said.
