Set on 3.4 acres of level land, “Frogs Hollow Retreat” is characterised by stunning 150-year-old grand oak and English elm trees and heritage listed buildings. In fact, it was first established in 1876 as the Emu Vale State School and continued running as such until 2003.

The current custodians of the property, who have been operating a hugely popular and successful art school and short stay accommodation business, have tastefully restored and renovated the original school house and play shed into a charming 4 bedroom country residence and detached art studio with loft.

The beautifully restored 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom timber residence (circa 1876) features:

  • A modern country kitchen with stone benchtops, quality cabinetry, Belling oven and cooktop. The black and white tile flooring creates an ageless elegance that will withstand the test of time.
  • A main lounge and living area, with polished timber floors, high raked ceilings and casement windows. It retains the original chalkboard as a feature piece.
  • Timber verandahs on 3 sides featuring French doors that open out from the living area onto the huge screened timber deck. Being situated on the eastern end of the residence makes this the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and breakfast or glass of wine in the evening whilst taking in the stunning mountain views.
  • A vintage inspired farmhouse bathroom featuring deep claw foot tub with overhead shower and freestanding vanity.
  • A vast master bedroom with ensuite plus an additional 3 bedrooms.

Around the grounds, grand old oak and elm trees (planted by the pioneers to the district some 150 years ago) take pride of place amongst the cottage garden and kikuyu lawns. The picket fence entrance winds its way up to the original school play shed which is now a dedicated art studio with loft and adjoining entertaining area.

The property’s very own water well, now equipped with a modern electric submersible pump, allows the avid gardener an abundance of water for lawns and gardens as well as providing water for livestock.

“Frogs Hollow Retreat” is located in Emu Vale, a small hamlet at the foothills of the mountains approximately 20 minutes East of Warwick, five minutes to the village of Yangan and approximately 10 minutes to Killarney. A comfortable 2 hour drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the property is popular with city visitors who come to unwind in this relaxed peaceful setting.

The hassle-free lifestyle and endless opportunities for day trips to the region’s attractions, from nearby Queen Mary Falls to the wineries of the Granite Belt, was at the forefront of the current owners decision to purchase and restore this beautiful piece of local history. Now it’s somebody else’s turn to be the custodians of this gorgeous historical property.
