Maleny house prize worth over $2 million

A custom-built home in Maleny is set to be the most expensive home ever given away by the Endeavour Foundation.

Endeavour Foundation’s Kirsty Moore said the $2.19 million luxury Maleny home, at 155 Tallowwood Street, showed just how far the Endeavour Foundation Lotteries’ fundraising efforts had come over the past 60 years.

“In the early days, we were relying on meat trays and hat parades to fund our valuable programs,” Ms Moore said.

“In 1962, we offered our first prize home – a property at Cecil Downs on the Darling Downs. Before long there were art unions for seaside blocks, sugar cane farms and cattle properties across Queensland.

“Our prize homes have changed over time to reflect the great Australian dream.”

The Maleny home offers a four bedroom home with two living spaces, an outdoor lounge with a wood log fireplace, two bathrooms, two powder rooms, mudroom and an inground pool.

Offering a high level of luxury, the sprawling home features Herringbone dark wood floors throughout, integrated appliances, Velux skylights and even a Ralph Lauren pendant light in the lounge. 

Set on 3071 square metres, the expansive property boasts stunning views and comes complete with a pool and a John Deere ride-on mower.

Building designer Peter Taylor said the home was “absolutely stunning”

“It has a strong connection to the outdoor living verandahs and pool, and the indoor spaces are very inviting, warm and calming. The lucky winner is going to really love living in this magnificent home.”
