This pristine 61.27ha property sits partly amongst the world heritage listed Rainforest. One of only 43 Houses in Australia listed within this Rainforest. It is the perfect mix of Rainforest retreat with 2 fresh running springs fed creeks, and open grazing country. Approx 60 acres of the property is cleared to pasture and has recently been home to 40 head of aggisted cattle. The house sits on an elevated pad overlooking the cleared pastures where the cattle graze and beyond to the Russell River National Park and the peak of Mount Bartle Frere, Queensland's highest mountain.
The home features a versatile floor plan with modern kitchen, open plan living, and stunning views from every window. It is fully air conditioned and light and bright with high ceilings.The master bedroom and en-suite is huge and connected by the covered Al-fresco breezeway to the home. It would be ideal to air B&B or run as a farm stay/guesthouse. There is even an outdoor bathroom where you can lay in the tub and watch and listen to the forest. Services include main power, telephone and broadband, garbage collection and bucket supply of water.
There are two large machinery sheds as well as undercover parking for 2-3 cars. The grounds around the house are salted with tropical fruit trees including Citrus, Papaya, Dragon-fruit and Lychee's. The property is fully fenced and is only a few minutes to the beach, shops and local watering holes. This property is suitable for more intensive horticulture, an income producing guest house, or stock. You could retreat from the world here and become self sufficient - growing your own fruit and vegetables, running chickens and producing your own milk, butter and cheeses. A few beehives would complete the picture. Though this property is only 78kms from Cairns with its international airport the worries of the world are a million miles away.
