Pole homes took the world by storm around twenty five years ago, considered to be the ideal tropical tree house. Offering elevation to take in the views and the breezes, the quintessential pole home is still in strong demand with buyers from Australia's southern states seeking the ultimate tree-change. This home, built in 1997, is at one with nature, striking the ideal balance of form and function.
Designed by Chris Van Dyke, the most renowned pole home designer and multi-award winner, this spectacular masterpiece is perched high on the Oak Beach hillside, bordering World Heritage rainforest and overlooking the Great Barrier Reef.
Oak Beach is ideally located just 10 minutes southside of Port Douglas, 45 minutes north of Cairns. On 8246sqm (2 acres), this unique property offers total privacy from the world.
Deceptively large and immaculately presented, this home has an open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge layout which opens out to the broad timber verandah, creating the ideal entertaining area with views across the rainforest canopy to the sparkling Coral Sea. The 'Queenslander' charm exudes from the Turpentine timber poles, elevated raked timber ceilings, brush-box timber floors, casement and bi-folding windows, glass louvres, and every room has access out to the wrap-around cedar balcony through glass doors.
The ground level has 3 bedrooms (one is currently a large office), 1 bathroom, laundry and storage, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs along with the living spaces. The home is fully airconditioned but rarely required as the house is so perfectly designed to use the sea breezes. In keeping with the organic feel of the property, the pool is lagoon style, free-form, it's really beautiful, cool and welcoming.
Tropical landscaping, palms and heliconia surround the home. Exotic fruits including Dragon-fruit, Pawpaw, Sour-sop, and Jack-fruit grow with ease in the vegetable garden and extensive grounds. You'll propagate like a green-thumb in the greenhouse and have daily eggs from the custom-built chicken pen.
The current owners operate a successful business from this property, though it is not a requirement for a new owner. Currently a Cat Resort for 20 inmates exists on the property. It does create an income stream, but this space could be whatever you want it to be. More information about the business is available upon request. The value of the property does not factor-in the business. Consider it free if you buy the property, it's your choice to continue.
