A Nairne home offers expansive views and plenty of room to live, work and play.

Rebecca and Jaemes Collingwood bought the property 23 years ago, creating a beautiful family home and a wonderful environment in which to raise their children.

“The land was just a paddock, and we designed the home and built it ourselves in 1999 and established the whole property essentially,” Mrs Collingwood says. “We didn’t want flat, boring land – we wanted something that was a bit interesting and as soon as we found this property we knew it was the one, and we set about creating a beautiful open-plan family home our children could grow up in.”

The home has five bedrooms and a study, several indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces, quality fittings and fixtures throughout, and plenty of space for kids and animals to roam.

“It’s an amazing home, I don’t think I’d change anything,” Mrs Collingwood says. “We’ve got three kids and they’ve loved living here. It’s a great party house. Back when the kids were younger we’d entertain pretty much every weekend – it was always about having a kitchen that could facilitate lots of people and an outdoor area where we could enjoy the view and summers around the spa.”

Quality was paramount, with every aspect of the home meeting the couple’s high standards.

“Jaemes is a manufacturing jeweller – and he used to work in his own space in the shed, which was great – so it’s all about quality for him and being creative as well,” Mrs Collingwood says. “So he has done a lot of the building works around it and done it with quality and attention in mind, and I’m a perfectionist and my keen eye has run over everything he’s done and we’ve made it as perfect as it can possibly be, as well as functional as well.”

With the family now moving to Noosa, the time has come to say goodbye to the home they have loved for more than two decades.

“We are very proud of it,” Mrs Collingwood says. “For us it’s been a real labour of love – we’ve created a house we have truly sunk our heart and soul, and our blood, sweat and tears into, and to be able to pass that on to someone else is going to be pretty special.”
