Luxurious Lifestyle Estate on the Edge of the Rainforest

Auction 12th October 2023 at 6:30pm

Tropical North Queensland is home to two World Heritage sites, the magical Daintree Rainforest, and the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. Alongside these natural wonders is the serene and very elegant Rainforest Estate. This stunning property sits at the base of the surrounding rainforest mountains, only twenty minutes drive from Port Douglas, and offers the quintessential Tropical North Queensland lifestyle.

Entering the property is a delight in itself. Driving across your private bridge, sparkling creek, and along the winding driveway completely framed by tropical vegetation, is just the beginning of your glorious discovery.

The main home is welcoming as you round the bend and as you pull into the carport, the sense of tranquillity and seclusion embraces you. The lovingly designed, yet natural gardens are overflowing with every tropical plant you could ever imagine, and entering the home is like receiving a long cool drink in a frosty glass on a hot day. The internal waterfall in the entry is a stunning showstopper. The floor to ceiling louvered glass windows overlooks the pool and the beautifully maintained lawns and gardens.

This 1980s home was completely transformed in 2007. All plumbing and electrical systems replaced, new timber and marble kitchen, new double bathrooms, outstanding Bose surround sound system inside and out, alarm system, home automation, fully irrigated and on never-ending bore water straight from the rainforest mountains - you name it, it's happened.
The glorious and huge solar heated lagoon style saltwater pool is perfect for the whole family. It comes with its own BBQ pavilion and under the house a 2000-bottle wine cellar is hidden.

Out onto the decking and up the floodlit elevated boardwalk, lies the second home which could house an extended family, the teenagers, the mother-in-law, or the staff. Providing completely independent living, this practical and stylish home also has an impressive master bedroom with en-suite, sitting room (or second bedroom) upstairs and downstairs a separate spacious lounge, bathroom, and large timber kitchen.

In total, there are over 900 square metres of living space (indoor and outdoor) sitting on nine stunning acres of lush tropical grounds. With four master bedrooms, three additional sleeping areas, six bathrooms, private outdoor patios, and huge living spaces, you could not run into anyone for hours. Or you could hold the best party for 100 people with dance floors and DJs.

Oh wait, we forgot a gymnasium, home office, outdoor western red cedar hot tub, two more house pads (on a separate title) a helipad, and a huge 280sqm shed for all the toys!

It even includes a 2,000+ bottle temperature controlled wine cellar. There is nothing to do or need to spend on to move in and start enjoying this magnificent property and/or to continue running the lucrative business activities.
