Cottages, Restaurant and Day-spa Business - Lifestyle with income!
With huge scope to improve, enhance, expand and redevelop, 'Chilverton Cottages, Restaurant and Day-spa' is a fully operational and profitable boutique business, catering to those who seek a wonderfully relaxing, pet-friendly retreat in a beautiful, natural setting.
Located in World Heritage Rainforest at the Southern end of the Atherton Tablelands, in Far North Queensland. Set on a picturesque 7 acres (2.42ha), with The Millstream, a natural watercourse habitat flowing through the property, alive with platypus, water dragons and fish. Surrounded by State forest, the property is abundant with birdlife, tree-kangaroos and other wildlife. There's even a dedicated pet-park, allowing guests to let their four-legged friends run-free within a fully fenced area. Well maintained walking paths lead you through the forest, over bridges, with fire-pits and picnic areas to enjoy.
The main residence sits atop the hill, overlooking the towering Rose-gums down by the riverbank. It's currently set as a one-bedroom home with the Restaurant, Day-spa, Games-room and Bar. The Restaurant can seat 30 people and the adjacent commercial grade kitchen is well equipped and designed. The Day-spa has 2 treatment rooms, separate access and a private courtyard area.
There are 2 very private, self-contained cottages on the bank of the river, each with carport, wood-burning heaters, bbq's and all the comforts of home. 2 other cottages are located closer to the homestead, and 2 others within the main residence.
About an hour and a half inland from Cairns, you'll find the Atherton Tablelands. A large green plateau with lots of natural wonders to explore. Local food and wine trails, waterfalls, historic villages and hiking trails, all enjoying a cooler climate than that of the coastal fringe, with less humidity. Evelyn is 1084m above sea-level, a 30 minute drive from Atherton, Lake Tinaroo and Yungaburra, 2 hours from Port Douglas.
The current owners have built their business over the past 14 years, building a wonderful reputation for friendly hospitality. Many guests stay regularly, enjoying time away with their fur-babies, with like-minded people, in this ultra clean and tidy property. Locals enjoy the restaurant also, they come along with their dogs for the friendly vibe and great food.
