This large and airy two story pole home with its spacious living areas, 5 bedrooms and wrap around verandahs is ideal for a large family, or for use as a bed and breakfast business.
Set on 5 acres surrounded by mature palms and native trees with no neighbours in sight, and set well back from the road it offers superb privacy and tropical tranquility. There are great views overlooking Flat Peak which was used as the location for Skull Mountain in the film “The Phantom” starring Billy Zane. It is close to Reef, River and the World Heritage listed rainforest. Without a doubt it is a Tropical Paradise.
The house was a labour of love hand-built by the owners out of the finest tropical hardwoods and was finished in 1997. The poles are Cyprus Pine (white ant resistant), all stud walls, joists and floors are of tropical hardwood, and the rafters and beams are Jarrah. The cladding is Western Red Cedar and interior walls are plantation pine (Pinus Radiata). All doors and windows were built of Marante an Indonesian timber, and the exterior decks are of Quilla.
The kitchen has beautifully crafted benches of 5 types of laminated Oak, the kitchen doors and cupboards are of the exquisite Booyong (Brown Tulip Oak) a very rare Australian hardwood with a beautifully figured grain.
The school bus stops at the end of driveway and all the garden/trees planted attract birds & butterflies. A water hole is at the end of the property for swimming during the summer months. Fantastic fishing, beaches are close by and the Daintree River is just 3 minutes away.
There is a 2 year-old 9x12m garage with concrete floor. The property is serviced with hot water via solar, electricity supplied by 12 solar panels, and water I supplied from a year-round bore. The property comes with a tractor and ride on mower for maintenance, as well as a 12 foot aluminium dinghy and 12HP outboard so you can enjoy fishing the local waters.
40 minutes north of Port Douglas and 80 minutes from the Cairns Airport.
Words cannot describe this paradise. It’s a must see, and the owners are negotiable.
