Peace and Privacy in Tropical North Queensland.
After 25 years the owners are moving on to new and exciting things, giving some lucky individual/s the opportunity to own and enjoy this beautiful, extremely private and unique sanctuary.
The 9.2547ha block is situated in the shadow of Mt. Dryander (tallest peak in the region), embraced by two ridges and backs onto Dryander National Park making this property a very private and peaceful place to truly live the good life.
The property has two seasonal creeks which form most of the boundary. The main creek 'Deep Creek' is utterly stunning and has multiple private waterholes to enjoy during the warmer months or you could just take advantage of the 'recycled poly tank' plunge pool to cool off.
It is perfect for anyone with horses or someone who wants a small hobby farm, as the property is about 95% cleared, usable land with plenty of feed for horses/cattle, etc.
The house is made from Hardwood and hardwood weatherboard and all buildings have been constructed to above Category 5 standards, which has made it possible for the properties buildings to withstand multiple cyclones unscathed, including cyclone Debbie.
The house consists of two large bedrooms with built-ins, a bathroom with separate toilet, large kitchen and open plan internal living areas with both polished hardwood/cork tile flooring and ceiling fans throughout. The kitchen is a good size with a large timber bench top area, huge pantry, large under counter storage cabinets and a gas oven/stove.
Apart from a large veranda out the back where the toilet and laundry are located, the house also boasts a huge fully screened front veranda that has been enclosed with waterproof mesh and sea-grass matting on the floor to create a cosy and bug free outdoor living space, with a wood fireplace for those cooler winter nights.
In addition to the house, there is a lovely little powered cabin (22.3 m²) adjacent to the main house that is currently being used as a semi self-contained granny flat.
The cabin is constructed of steel and clad in colourbond.
It is fully insulated, ready to be lined internally and would make a great third bedroom/guest space, but would also make a fantastic art/craft studio.
The massive 279m² shed is a world of its own and has been used primarily as a work shed for the boat builder owner. It is fully powered and enclosed, has 7 entry points and it plays host to the large solar bank and hard-wired back-up generator system, which make the property both energy efficient and resistant to blackouts.
Water is no issue on this property with two rainwater tanks and a very clean and plentiful bore that is also connected to a large pipe network that feeds into the main tank to keep the tank full during dry times and to the many gardens, a huge veggie garden plot and to keep the many varieties of fruit trees such as Avocado, Star Apple, Orange, Chilli, Mandarin, Mango, Passion-fruit, Papaya happy and healthy.
To risk leaving the best for last, the house sits on the banks of a large industrial lined dam/lagoon with an island, surrounded by native trees and shrubs, and a 99% cane toad proof fence.
The water and lack of toads and large snakes make it a very attractive place for wildlife and in fact has created a sanctuary for water birds, birds, turtles and various other creatures you do not see every day.
Sunset with a few coldies, cheese and crackers, overlooking your own private watery wildlife sanctuary with a backdrop of Mt. Dryander national park. What more could you wish for?
