Escape the hustle and bustle and come and discover this little piece of paradise in a serene country setting, yet you are only 10 minutes from the highway and are surrounded by beautiful rainforest clad mountains and lush greenery. There is a permanently flowing rainforest creek which is spring fed from the surrounding mountains.
On an elevated 7.89 Ha (19.5 acre) site, this captivating, open plan home in a rural setting enjoys calming views over the surrounding countryside. Boasting 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, this property is ideally suited as a family home in a tranquil setting less than 30 minutes the town of Innisfail and 20 minutes to the beach side village of Kurrimine Beach where you can relax on the beach or wine and dine at the King Reef Hotel.
The land is undulating with a creek which winds its way through the property and is fenced into 3 paddocks for the cattle and includes the robust cattle yards. (Electric fence on one boundary). Nearby steel shed (24.5m x 10.5m) has a concrete floor and 3 phase power connected and is a great machinery/storage shed with extremely high opening. Water tank – 16,000lt - collects rainwater from the roof. Power runs underground from the shed to the home so as not to impede on the views. Another 3 x 20,000 lt water tanks at the home provide an ‘endless supply’ of water.
Features include the fenced vegetable garden, chook pen, picturesque dam where the ibis, ducks, chooks and guinea fowl all road free. Great soil where you could become self-sufficient and grow almost anything. Plenty of grass on almost 20 acres of green pastures for 10 contented cattle. (Not included in the sale.)
The home has been designed to be low maintenance with its steel framework and western red cedar walls. Hardwood decks surround the home on all 4 sides. Extra wide outdoor deck at the rear of the home is a great winter retreat. Take the sails off in winter and enjoy the warmth of the sun.
Soaring cathedral ceilings in the living area assist in keeping the home cool in summer as the winds sweep up the valley and are drawn through the stackable glass sliding doors and the many louvre openings. As a back-up, there’s two split system air-conditioners in the living area to cool the home in summer. Tiled in the bathrooms and timber laminate floating floors throughout the remainder of the home are low maintenance and easy to care for.
A roomy master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe is air-conditioned and has plenty of window openings to enjoy the views from every corner of the room. There’s another 2 generous-size bedrooms which are light and airy and another bathroom at the other end of the home.
Extensive views from the full-length patios on both sides of the home means that you can choose to follow either the winter sun or the summer shade.
