'Serenity' at Deepwater, with 554 metres of absolute beach frontage is a 121-hectare rural retreat located on the southern boundary of the Deepwater National Park. It is a very special property as it is all about total freedom, somewhere to relax, be yourself and to enjoy all that nature, in all its glory, has to offer.
The land was purchased by the current owners in 2004 with the intent of creating a Queensland beach side holiday paradise. What better way to do this than with a typical Queenslander design home, built for the tropics. They identified the future location for the home and caretaker cottage and cleared 15 acres of land surrounding both future dwellings. Whilst creating the driveway, they uncovered a few surprises along the way, including an old mango plantation.
Construction of the massive homestead was completed in 2006 and has been a treasured private holiday home enjoyed by family and friends from Australia and Europe ever since.
This two-storey home with front and rear stairs, features an extremely spacious open plan kitchen, living, dining area, plus 3 bedrooms with en-suites, and a 4th bedroom or multi-purpose room and a powder room. There is enough room to accommodate friends and family or for it to be offered as a luxury beach front holiday let or bed & breakfast.
The bright kitchen has plenty of storage and bench space for meal preparation. It includes a SMEG dishwasher, an electric stove and oven and wide fridge space plus the balcony off the kitchen is a lovely spot to enjoy a morning cup of tea and listen to the birds.
All of the living spaces and three main bedrooms open directly onto a wraparound veranda, typical of a Queensland design home. The three bedrooms with en-suites are spacious very and the fourth bedroom is handy when extra guests are staying or may alternatively be used as an office. A separate powder room and is also available for the convenient of guests.
Light and airy this home is situated in a slightly elevated position 200 metres from the beachfront, so it enjoys the cooling sea breezes without the sea spray. The 3-metre-high ceilings upstairs as well as under the house provide lots of cool spaces to relax and play. Red Gum timber flooring and tiled bathrooms are complemented by ceiling fans and deep wrap around verandas, plus screens on all windows and most doors allow for continual air flow. It is very much designed for residents to enjoy both living indoors and out.
Underneath the house has large open spaces plus a secure garage to accommodate up to 4 vehicles and oversize storeroom and laundry rooms, both with abundant storage.
Services comprise of solar power with the panels installed on the roof of the caretaker cottage and electricity is underground. Two rainwater tanks have a capacity of 45,000 litres per tank and the site is also serviced by an eco-friendly sewerage treatment system. In addition, there are three active bores on the property. A landline and wi-fi is available along with a digital television connection.
Fertile soil is ideal for growing fruit and vegetables, and many abound onsite, including mangos, bananas, peaches, limes, macadamia, lychees. This land could also be developed as income producing, with nearby macadamia farms one example of a potential crop.
The separate fully self-contained 2-bedroom cottage with a three-bay work shed attached is currently occupied by a full-time caretaker, however it could also be ideal for family or friends or rented as a holiday home if a caretaker was no longer required. Very comfortable, it comprises two bedrooms, a spacious kitchen, open plan lounge/dining room, bathroom including laundry, separate WC and shady covered patio on three sides.
'Serenity' at Deepwater is approximately halfway between Agnes Water & the town of 1770 and Bundaberg, approximately 45 minutes in either direction. Fly into Bundaberg or drive from Brisbane which takes approximately 5 hours.
The property is on the southern boundary of Deepwater National Park, 375 km north of Brisbane which protects an area of sand dunes and coastal heaths in the Deepwater Creek catchment. The area is one of the few remaining pristine freshwater catchments on Queensland's east coast. Deepwater National Park was established in 1988 and covers 4,090 ha. Deepwater National Park has a number of rocky headlands such as Wreck Rock and 9km of beach frontage.
Beaches in the park are used for nesting by loggerhead and leatherback turtles. Flatback and green turtles also nest on the park's beaches. This location is the only mainland site where leatherbacks repeatedly return to lay eggs.
In this area, Rose-crowned fruit doves, fairy gerygones and grey fantails are commonly found in the canopies to the west. Along the beaches pied oystercatcher, bar-tailed godwits, tattlers and crested terns are often seen. Emus and brahminy kites are also to be found in the park.
'Serenity' and Deepwater National Park are accessible from the south through the small town of Wartburg. Conventional vehicle access is possible in the dry season along approximately 5kms of unsealed road leading to the property. Alternative access is possible from the north through Agnes Water with a 4WD vehicle strongly recommended for this route due to sandy conditions along the track.
Nearby Baffle Creek is where the primary school is located along with a hotel, shop and hardware store and the nearest high school is at Rosedale, approximately 20-minute drive from 'Serenity'.
Whether as a permanent home, a beach retreat or a working farm, 'Serenity' is all about family, peace and being close to all that nature provides in this tropical Queensland paradise.
