Misty Mountains Estate, golden opportunity to acquire a world-class property and resort business South of Cairns, Queensland Australia

For Sale EOI by Friday 29th October 2021

Motoring up the three-kilometre private and gated driveway toward the Misty Mountains Estate homestead is like arriving on Jurassic Park's movie set. With an ancient fig tree towering over the rainforest, rare tropical flora and fauna to rival an international botanical garden, and cascading waterfalls flowing to freshwater mountain creeks - to describe the property as unique is an understatement. More fittingly, Misty Mountains Estate is a golden opportunity to acquire a world-class real estate asset of significance with a green future.

Misty Mountains Estate is a 55-hectare landholding situated on the second-highest mountain in Queensland and surrounded by Wooroonooran National Park. It is the choice of the buyer to retain the asset as a private residence with an associated resort component or guest quarters. Alternatively, action the Council approved Development Application, which allows the land subdivision into two equal parcels that share the private road.

The first parcel consists of 25 hectares of land and the jewel in the Misty Mountains' crown, the grand homestead required ten years to complete. Building materials exclusive to the region include hand-cut fossilised pink Dreamtime granite exterior walls and features bespoke timber windows and doors. Generously proportioned interiors and a handcrafted Tulip Oak timber and glass semi-circular staircase set the tone for this family home with an entertainer's kitchen and an abundance of space for dining and enjoying the easy lifestyle afforded Queensland tropics. Surrounded by flowerbeds and manicured lawns, the homestead amenities include the stable and fenced paddock, a vegetable garden, a chicken coop, and a machinery building.

Bordered by World Heritage Listed Rainforest, the 30-hectare second parcel, known as Misty Mountains Retreat, is a pristine wilderness with the infrastructure and systems to operate as a boutique resort and wedding venue. The resort facilities include a Queenslander-style residence with two apartments, a cottage known as The Hideaway, a yoga studio at the river's edge, a gazebo, machinery building and workshop, a glass-walled nightclub, and a lagoon-style swimming pool with a poolside cabana. There is a large open lawn to accommodate commercial helicopters and kilometres of nature trails for exploring. In addition to the retreat, Misty Mountains Retreat enjoys a secondary revenue stream as a film and television production location.

Opportunity knocks once as it is not every day that a mountain estate comes to market. One call to Barbara Wolveridge starts the conversation to make Misty Mountain yours.
