Julatten Acreage - Tropical Paradise in a Fantastic Balmy and Invigorating Location.

The Phone Code for this property is: 26773. Please quote this number when phoning or texting.

Not just a great place to live, in a beautiful temperate climate, this well-equipped, fully-usable 6 acre hobby farm with dual-living/income-generating capability, is both an opportunity to go off-grid, and an excellent jumping off point for exploring the very best of Queensland's tropical North.

THE HOME

Accessed via an excellent palm-lined all-weather concrete driveway, this very solid, strongly built brick home has 3 large bedrooms, with an ensuite to the master bedroom, plus a bright and airy 4th bedroom or office (with NBN available) ideal for a home-based worker. The lounge, dining and kitchen are open plan with a superb open and airy feel and wonderful cross ventilation. All rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and are air-conditioned for the handful of days that get a tad warm. In addition, the ceiling is fully insulated. All rooms are equipped with ample cupboard space and in the kitchen there is a roomy walk-in pantry.

The windows and sliding doors are equipped with security screens (totally unnecessary in this neighbourhood - but hey they're there) so you can truly relax while you enjoy the crisp, clean, cool night breezes.

A pot-belly combustion heater is fitted - although it seldom gets cold enough to warrant using it.

At the rear is a pergola, BBQ area and a ​caged area that could easily be used for a kennel, greenhouse or large aviary.

Overlooking the gorgeous misty mountains of Mount Lewis National Park on the West and Northern sides of the house are extensive tiled verandahs - a great place to enjoy your breakfast watching the sun's first touch, or sip a drink while taking in a spectacular sunset.

THE PROPERTY

The property is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. There is a total of 5 x lock up garages and 2 x covered vehicle parking spaces - so plenty of room for all your toys.

Two of the garages are well suited to use as a workshop-to-die-for with high ceilings, excellent light, ventilation, fans and ample power outlets.

There is a reliable bore producing quality drinking water, backed up by 3 x 20,000 litre concrete rainwater tanks (which can be filled by either rain or bore water), plus a header tank and dams.

There are plenty of established exotic fruit trees providing a steady stream of edible delights and an extensive in-ground pipe network feeds plenty of taps for watering and/or irrigation.

Horse owners will love the two fully-fenced, pastured and watered paddocks equipped with stables, 3 x sun/rain shelters and lock-up food and tack storage. If you don't have horses of your own, you can accommodate someone else's for an additional source of income.

Up on top of the home is a solar hot water system, plus solar power working together to keep your bills low.

THE LOCATION

The property is located in the 'goldilocks' zone of Julatten (not too dry and not too wet) in a very quiet cul de sac. The block is elevated so it catches the mountain views and breezes, but also drains well and there is no risk of flooding. Charming Julatten school is only a couple of minutes away, as is the local childcare centre, and the school bus passes the door. Also within a few minutes drive is the men's shed, community centre, library, tennis club and local tavern.

The neighbouring properties are well maintained by friendly, helpful and house-proud residents who are sure to warmly welcome you into their delightful community.

Many of Queensland's premier tourist attractions are within easy reach including:

Mossman Gorge (25 minutes)

Port Douglas (35 minutes)

The Great Barrier Reef (day trip through Port Douglas)

The Daintree (45 minutes)

Kuranda (Just over an hour)

Cape Tribulation (2 hours)

Cooktown (2 and a half hours)

Tip of Cape York (12 hours)

Plus the many, many attractions of the Atherton Tablelands are all within day-trip range.

Cairns itself is just an hour and a half away along the truly beautiful Captain Cook Highway - surely Australia's most beautiful drive winding past glorious, but largely deserted, beaches and with spectacular ocean vistas - it just never gets old.

If you like your international travel, exiting through Cairns International airport will slice significant time (and hassle) off your overseas journeys as compared to Sydney or Melboune.

On the other hand, if you want a quick, relaxing break closer to home, there are many cool, clean, mountain streams within a couple of minutes drive to take a dip in.

THE GRANNY FLAT

With two bedrooms, a combined kitchen/lounge, toilet and shower facilities, plus a pleasant outdoor sitting area, the granny flat is a fully fledged secondary residence - at a respectable distance from the main residence.

In addition, one of the five lock-up car spaces can be used by the granny flat without impacting on the other lock-up spaces.

ABOUT JULATTEN

Being part of the Atherton Tablelands Julatten has a very temperate climate with maximums between 20 and 30 degrees for most of the year and plenty of rain to keep things clean and green.

It has been declared to have the third best climate in the world by National Geographic magazine.

Because of the pleasant climate, the area abounds with natural wonders and extensive and diverse flora and fauna. Of particular note are the birds. With over 230 species of birds either present in, or migrating through the Julatten area, it is a world-reknown destination for birders, and every dawn is greeted with a chorus of beautiful and unusual bird songs.

YOUR OPPORTUNITY

Further subdivisions are not permitted in the Julatten area and so the properties that currently exist here are all that there are going to be. For that reason quality properties in the region are highly sought after - but tightly held and thus rarely available.

So if you are sick of lockdowns, commuting, pollution, crime, traffic, noise and the hectic and stressing pace of modern life, here is a golden opportunity for you to choose your 'new normal', and grab a comfortable, healthy and exciting lifestyle change for you and your family in the best place in Australia.
